    George Lopez made headlines earlier this year when he responded to a news story that Iran had offered an $80 million bounty on Donald Trump with the comment, "We'll do it for half." As you might expect from a show that takes its name from that comment, the actor and comedian pulls no punches in his first-ever Netflix standup special, tackling race, politics and life lessons to be learned from the Latino community. Also today: HBO spotlights the struggle of the LGBTQ community in Chechnya, America's Got Talent goes audience-free, and Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story reaches the point of no return. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV this Tuesday:
