FX made a deal with the studio of Saint George that, if the first season drew high enough ratings, the sitcom would be renewed for a second season of 90 episodes (similar to the Anger Management deal). Will it be renewed or be cancelled instead? Stay tuned.

The cast includes Lopez, Jenn Lyon, Olga Merediz, Kaden Gibson, David Zayas, Danny Trejo, Diana-Maria Riva, Joey Pollari, and Tobit Raphael.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

The new FX multi-camera comedy series Saint George follows the chaotic life of George Lopez (conveniently played by George Lopez, who also co-created, executive produces and writes the show), a recently divorced working-class Mexican-American man turned successful entrepreneur. Struggling to balance the parenting demands of his all-American Anglo ex-wife (Jenn Lyon) and the cultural expectations of his overbearing Mexican-American mother (Olga Merediz), he also has to figure out how to relate to his 11-year-old son (Kaden Gibson), his freeloading uncle Tio (Danny Trejo) and his cousin Junior (David Zayas). During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Danny Trejo talked about why he wanted to work with George Lopez, who he’s known for about 20 years, how much he enjoys doing comedy, that his character is part freeloader and part ladies’ man, that Tio is clearly a better uncle than father, and getting to do some physical comedy on the show. »

Returning for another sitcom that features his first name in the title, George Lopez and everyone else, including the producers of “Home Improvement,” sleepwalks through “Saint George,” a numbingly awful multicamera sitcom that plays like something conjured in a lab once the presumably magical ingredient “George Lopez” was acquired. There’s obviously a business model in the 10-90 approach to comedy development – otherwise FX and distributor Debmar-Mercury/Lionsgate TV wouldn’t keep doing it. But they have once again put the deal ahead of the show, conjuring 21 minutes of rim shots that felt about three times that long, viewing-wise.
Like Charlie Sheen before him, Lopez must need the gig, but there’s virtually no other reason why he’d bank the equity built up with loyal fans on such a slapdash product. Why “Improvement’s” Matt Williams and David McFadzean would get involved is equally confounding, but the show is rather surprisingly naughty – an indication, »

The half-hour, multi-camera ensemble comedy stars George Lopez as George Lopez, a newly divorced working man-turned-entrepreneur who balances the clashing culture of his all-American ex-wife (Justified’s Jenn Lyon) with that of his overbearing Mexican-American mother (In the Heights’ Olga Merediz).
Also in the mix are George’s 11-year-old son Harper (Kaden Gibson), his freeloading uncle (Danny Trejo) and cousin (David Zayas), and a “tough and sexy” assistant principal (Diana Maria Riva) who supervises »
