The very first At-Home Variety Show on Peacock featured the return of one of the most famous TV characters: Monk.

Hosted by Seth MacFarlane, the new short-form series features talent from across the NBCUniversal family doing their best to entertain masses and raise awareness and support for Feeding America, Americares and United Way. The first installment dropped on Monday, May 11 featuring Tony Shalhoub reprising the role of Adrian Monk in “Mr. Monk Shelters in Place.”

Shalhoub played the title character in Monk for eight seasons from 2002-2009 and won three Emmys and one Golden Globe for his work on the series about a brilliant one-time police detective battling obsessive-compulsive disorder following the murder of his wife. Following the death of Trudy, Monk suffered a nervous breakdown and developed severe phobias along with the OCD.

The segment in the At-Home Variety Show is classic Monk featuring the detective obsessively clean his hands, microwaving his mail, putting his fruit in the dishwasher and wearing protective feet gloves.

Series stars Jason Gray-Stanford, Ted Levine and Traylor Howard appear in the segment above as well.

“Monk, I hate to admit it but you were right. I mean, look at us. Everybody is afraid of germs. Nobody is touching anybody now,” Levine’s Captain Stottlemeyer says.

“Guess we’re all Monk now,” Gray-Stanford’s Randy Disher says.

“It sucks, doesn’t it?” Monk says, making sure to social distance from the computer screen.

 New episodes of The At-Home Variety Show drop daily at 7 p.m. on Peacock and on the new streaming service’s social channels.

(E! and Peacock are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
