Showtime’s drama pilot The Affair has added Joshua Jackson to the cast. The drama focuses on two married couples and an affair that creates turmoil between them. Jackson will play a long island cowboy whose wife starts an affair with a character played by Dominic West.
EW drops the terrible no-good news that Lynda Carter will appear as herself on an episode of Two and a Half Men. I’m telling myself that show probably won’t give Carter a scene to justify watching Two and a Half Men.
NBC lists 12 “Must See TV” Shows You Might Not Remember. I look at it as twelve reasons why NBC has been stuck at the bottom of the ratings.
Perhaps instead of being shocked at a display of sexuality on the Video Music Awards, we should be discussing the cultural appropriation in Miley Cyrus’s performance?
The cast of Bunheads got together to film a final dance number together as a goodbye to the fans. Every time I feel sad about that great show ending, I take comfort in knowing it’s being replaced by another great show.
Speaking of Bunheads, TVLine reports that Sutton Foster will appear on the season finale of Psych.
In amazing news, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been asked to return as hosts of the Golden Glob awards according to Deadline.
CBS is planning on rebooting Love, American Style with the creators of Being Erica and The Best Years.
The March (PBS) Check local listings
PBS joins the commemoration of the March on Washinton’s 50th anniversary with this look back at that moment of history. I was impressed at how often MSNBC’s coverage last weekend brought up Bayard Rustin, I hope PBS doesn’t overlook his vital contribution for the event.
Days of Our Lives (NBC) Check local listings
After getting yelled at for restarting things with Nick, Gabi decides one episode is the appropriate waiting time before telling people who just judged your personal life to butt out.
Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) 8:00 PM ET
A Pretty Little Liars finale usually has a few goals like set up a compelling cliffhanger and find room to homage a Hitchcock film. This one also has to get viewers excited about upcoming spin-off series Ravenwood, as the liars head to the nearby setting of the spin-off.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson joins the judges’ table tonight.
Whose Line Is It Anyway? (CW) 8:00 PM ET
This week, the performers are joined by Laila Ali.
The Haves and Have Nots (OWN) 9:00 PM ET
We’re at the penultimate episode of the season, which means the various secrets and rivalries have to build to the point that everything can explode next week. That includes Wyatt trying to drag Jeffrey out of the closet with a hand on Jeffrey’s inner thigh, while Katheryn and Hanna trade confessions (proably not a good idea for Hannah).
The Rachael Maddow Show (MSNBC) 9:00 PM ET
Regular TRMS viewers know Steve Schmidt as John McCain’s presidential campaign manager, and as someone who regularly talks about the GOP with Rachel. Last night Rachel revealed another role for Schmidt, he’s helping the ACLU strategize on how to accelerate the pace of marriage equality in red states. Tonight, she discusses his new job with him. (Also, maybe there will be discussion of a little something happening in my backyard.)
Face Off (Syfy) 9:00 PM ET
With a large cast, Face Off is heading into an early double-elimination challenge as the artists have to come up with modern takes on Mother Goose characters. I hope there’s an old woman who lived in an odd Christian Louboutin that’s missing the other half of the pair.
Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis (Bravo) 9:00 PM ET
Jeff and Jenny have worked with one couple on the verge of breaking up this season. For contrast, this week they’re helping a couple deal with their commitment issues.
Covert Affairs (USA) 9:00 PM ET
Since Covert Affairs seems to now be following soap opera rules, you can’t mention that a romantic hero is a widower with the dead wife turning out to be alive. There’s something similar at work if a villain like Henry Wilcox mentions a dead person with a hint of menace. Yep, we’re discussing how Auggie’s wife probably isn’t dead tonight.
Twisted (ABC Family) 9:00 PM ET
Danny’s freedom is on Lacey’s shoulders thanks to an overheard conversation but that would require giving up her access to the school’s in crowd. Is Lacey terrible enough to think popularity is worth injustice?
Suits (USA) 10:00 PM ET
When Harvey starts butting heads with Stephen over how to handle Ava’s case, is he really fighting over legal maneuvers or just jealous about Stephen’s relationship with Donna? I’d rather talk about can openers and Marvey.
