What to Watch Tonight: The 2013 MLB All-Star Game and the Season/Series Premieres of Covert Affairs, Suits, and The CW's Whose Line Is It Anyway?


What to watch on Tuesday, July 16...


Live, 7:30pm ET, Fox
2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game
New York's Citi Field hosts the 84th Midsummer Classic. With homefield advantage in the World Series on the line, the National League looks to extend its three-year winning streak against the visiting American League.


SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm & 8:30pm, The CW
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Show of hands: Who remembers watching this cult improv showcase way back when it starred a bunch of dishevelled Brits and the ringleader was a guy named Clive? This latest iteration (the third to hit American airwaves, after Comedy Central’s re-airings of the U.K. original and ABC’s eight-season, Drew Carey-helmed incarnation) is hosted by Aisha Tyler and features longtime Whose Liners Ryan Stiles, Colin Mochrie, and Wayne Brady, plus a rotating guest, all of them competing for utterly meaningless points in a series of improvisational comedy games. Lauren Cohan and Gary Anthony Williams join the gang for tonight's opener, with Kevin McDonald and Heather Anne Campbell stopping by in the 8:30pm episode.


8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
In “Under the Gun,” Spencer and Toby discover that Ravenswood is one kooky little burg—so much so that I bet it holds an entire series’ worth of mysteries all its own! Back in Rosewood, Hanna’s caught in a compromising position, Mona blabs a secret of Spencer’s, Aria sends the wrong signal when she assists a friend of Mike’s, and A is rankled by Emily’s attempts to aid Hanna.


SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm & 9:30pm, The CW
Perfect Score
Arielle Kebbel, better known to fans of both The Vampire Diaries and Bon Jovi as Awesome Vampire Lexi, hosts this dating game show in which two friends compete for love and/or money. You see, the contestants and the prospects take compatibility tests, and... yeah, okay, it’s just another excuse for The CW to trot out pretty people. Hey, it’s summer.


9pm, TNT
Rizzoli & Isles
Who among us hasn’t gone out for a lovely evening, only to have it sullied when your companion bites the dust and you’re painted as a murder suspect because you’ve lost whole swaths of your memory from that night? Dating, amirite?! Maura’s in that ol’ pickle in “Killer in High Heels,” putting an investigating Jane in an awkward place herself.


9pm, ABC Family
Twisted
Ah, the freedom of youth. Hitting the open road with your best friends to see your favorite band, or to check out the epic antiquing in the next county, or to hunt for evidence that could potentially exonerate one of you from the brutal murder of a classmate. If you, too, miss those days, relive them vicariously through Danny, Jo, and Lacey, who set out for Connecticut in defiance of parental permission and parole law alike in “Three for the Road.”


SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 9pm, USA
Covert Affairs
“Vamos” finds Annie juggling three gentleman: new paramour Auggie, new professional partner Henry Wilcox, and a new Colombia-based person of interest known as The Puma. God, I hope The Puma is actually this guy. I don’t ask you for much, TV, but I ask you for this.


SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 10pm, USA
Suits
There’s a new partner in town post-merger, and Darby wastes no time tasking Harvey with an especially high-pressure case. Meanwhile in “The Arrangement,” Mike’s hands are full mending fences with Harvey and containing the blowback from his confession to Rachel.


10pm, BET
The Game
“I Love Luke... Ahh!” finds Blue scheming to torpedo Keira’s new relationship, while Jason’s injury weighs heavily on both him and Chardonnay. Meanwhile, Malik’s past rears its decidedly unwelcome head.


10pm, TNT
Perception
Several young girls are afflicted with a neurological anomaly in “Toxic,” and Pierce must determine whether their condition is garden-variety Bieber Fever or something even more insidious.


10pm, Comedy Central
Drunk History
I know Chicago to be a sober and dignified town, but it's nevertheless the backdrop for this week’s sauced skewering. A surprising foe lays Al Capone low, the 1886 Haymarket Riot pits protesters against police, and up-and-coming lawyer Abe Lincoln catches a stroke of luck.
