  • OnTheFlix
Happy Thursday,"Pretty Little Liars" fans. We've got some more pretty interesting and great news for you guys on "The Perfectionists" spin off front. The production team has decided to bring on another female character that will be a recurring role. That means she won't be a season regular, but we'll see her just enough to remember that she even exists. The character we are speaking of will be named Dana. The description for Dana is that she will be the new head of security at Beacon Heights University. She will be determined and perceptive almost to the point of omniscience. After recent events, Dana will keep Alison (Sasha Pieterse), Mona (Janel Parrish) and the Perfectionists on their toes. Wow, her character sounds like she will mean pretty serious business. According the folks over at Deadline.com, the actress who is playing her is someone that most of you guys might actually recognize.

Last Night on Late Night, 5/6/15: Anna Wintour loves to laugh, Cher calls Dave an A**hole one more time

Real comedy still happens on late night, we can prove it. If you like Conan comedy gold, Fallon friendliness, cutesy Corden, list-making Letterman, kneedy Kimmel, and all the rest, I hope you’ll enjoy this column too.

Last night on late night, Martin Short and Cher horsed around with Dave, Anna Wintour put Seth Meyers to work, Conan talked with Nick Swardson and Helen Hunt, Dana Carvey showed up on The Late Late Show, and Kimmel got the Adam Levine treatment.

Late Show with David Letterman

Late Show continues its streak of amazing shows as Dave officially puts in his “two week notice”. Martin Short, one of Letterman’s best and most frequent quests, tells amazing stories. This one, about having to follow Tony Bennett as a young “boy singer” in 1974, is absolutely hilarious.

Late Show posts highlights from the monologue, which is nice, as most shows don’t. Dave

Scandal Recap: Fitz and Mellie Plan Her Political Future as the Show Takes on Ferguson
In its first episode since Olivia Pope's (Kerry Washington) escape, Scandal didn't pull any punches. The ABC drama doesn't openly discuss race often, but when it does - from Olivia's searing "I'm feeling a little, I don't know, Sally Hemings/Thomas Jefferson about this" jab to her father's mantra that she had to be "twice as good" - it's a raw reminder that, even in Shondaland, America is far from color-blind. Thursday night's episode handled the shooting of a young, unarmed black man - a clear statement on Ferguson's Michael Brown - with profound grace, exploring police brutality, racial identity

Josh Gad thinks patient '1600 Penn' viewers 'will find it to be one of the most extraordinary comedies on TV

There's your run-of-the-mill goofy guy, there's antic, then there's Josh Gad, who brings it to a new level as Skip, the oldest son on NBC's Thursday comedy "1600 Penn."

Gad, who was hilarious and Tony-nominated as a clueless missionary in the Broadway smash "The Book of Mormon," plays the president's ne'er-do-well son, who treats the White House like a frat house.

"He is a lovable golden retriever-type character," Gad says of Skip. "He wants so badly to do the right thing, and that leads to a lot of trouble."

He and another co-creator, Jason Winer, had long wanted to work together, Gad says. Gad likes the idea of putting a typically dysfunctional family under the 24-hour news glare.

"I think to a certain extent, because the White House has been a closed-off commodity over the years, dysfunction has existed over the years," but people didn't see it, he tells Zap2it.

"Shameless" 3.01 Recap: "It's Like Taking a Sh*t Backwards"

Welcome back, lovers of dysfunction, willful wallowers and aficionados of absolute disgrace - Showtime's trashcan opera Shameless is back for a third season of laughs, thrills, and all the rest. I hope that you put on your chin-pad, because your jaw is going to start hitting the floor in about 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Fiona (Emmy Rossum) wakes alone in her charmingly messy bed to the sounds of standard Gallagher family chaos downstairs. Her shins are covered in red, itchy bites - yowch! Are bedbugs the new Karen Jackson? Because I don't think I'm ready for that.

Downstairs, Jimmy-nee-Steve (Justin Chatwin) has gotten half the clan out the door and is finishing up with Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) and Debs (Emma Kenney) - who has been keeping track of the number of days that Frank has been missing (oh - and Frank has been missing) with ribbons and cards on the front fence.
