New York Mets pitching sensation Matt Harvey is sure to be showcased at this year’s MLB All-Star Game (7:30 tonight on Fox), which takes place this year at Citi Field, his home office. To mark the occasion, here are five other notable Harveys from TV:
v Harvey Specter: Tough, calculating senior partner played by Gabriel Macht on the USA legal drama “Suits” (which returns for its new season tonight).
v Steve Harvey: He’s an actor, comedian, writer, talk-show host, radio host and game-show host.
v Harvey Birdman: A former superhero now working as an attorney in a law firm filled with Hanna-Barbera cartoon stars of the 1960s and ’70s on the quirky Cartoon Network series “Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law” (2001-07).
v Harvey Korman: Comedian best-known for his work on “The Carol Burnett Show” (1967-77), for which he won four Emmys.
v “Harvey”: There were three TV movies based on the classic 1950 movie about Elwood P. Dowd (James Stewart), a man whose companion is the titular 6-foot invisible rabbit. Stewart reprised his role in a 1972 “Hallmark Hall of Fame” flick; other TV Elwoods have included Art Carney (1958) and Harry Anderson (1988).
Major League All-Star Game (7:30 P.M., FOX): Baseball’s top players will be on display in the 84th Major League All-Star Game at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets.
“Whose Line Is It Anyway?” (8 p.m., The CW): Wayne Brady, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles return in a reboot of the improvisational comedy series, now hosted by the hilarious Aisha Tyler.
“Suits” (10 p.m., USA): The delightfully offbeat legal series returns for its third season with a shift in the dynamics at the firm after cutthroat counselor Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) used some assistance from Mike (Patrick J. Adams) to secure a merger with a top British group. Now, Mike scrambles to mend fences with a furious Harvey (Gabriel Macht).
