By George!

It’s perfectly understandable that George Lopez’s fairly recent divorce would lead him to some personal exploration. If only he hadn’t made it into a sitcom. “Saint George” is a fairly witless affair about a successful businessman who lives with his grouchy mother, has only horndog friends and still hangs out with his ex. That’s all fine if you’re 21, but for a 52-year-old comedian? Grow up, George. 8 p.m. Thursday, FX

Acting out

“Review” hinges on a fairly weak premise: Life critic Forrest MacNeil (Andy Daly) engages in mostly sinful activities, all in the name of social science. It might be amusing if he actually did it — Borat-style — but everything is staged and choreographed to the point where you soon don’t want to view another minute. 9 p.m., Comedy Central

Sweet home Chicago

Robert Redford may be best associated with Utah, but he also has a soft spot for Chicago, the setting of his 1971 classic, “The Sting.” Redford is executive producer of “Chicagoland,” a new docu-series that takes you deep into one of America’s most fascinating cities. 9 p.m., CNN Neal Justin
