Thursday: Danson Returns as ‘Mr. Mayor’

If not completely wary of American politics, Ted Danson returns to TV in a new sitcom, “Mr. Mayor” (NBC, 8 and 8:30 p.m.) whose greatest assets may be producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Holly Hunter and Bobby Moynihan are also in the cast. It begins with two episodes. 

Vanessa Kirby and Shia LaBeouf star in the new movie “Pieces of a Woman” (Netflix, streaming) about the aftermath of a pregnancy and a vilified midwife played by Molly Parker. Ellen Burstyn also stars. 

Craig Ferguson hosts the new game show “The Hustler” (ABC, 10 p.m.), a quiz show with a complicated twist. It follows a second U.S. version of “The Chase” (ABC, 9 p.m.), an adaptation of the British quiz show. 

“Hell’s Kitchen” (Fox, 8 p.m.) begins its 19th season with 16 hopeful chefs from Las Vegas. 

Another new game show begins as Pat Sajak and Vanna White host “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” (ABC, 8 p.m.) with the players Leslie Jones, Chandra Wilson and Tony Hawk. 

Former D.C. exotic dancer turned Kardashian- adjacent minor celebrity, “The Real Blac Chyna” (WEtv, 10 p.m.) begins her own reality show. 

“Last Man Standing” (Fox, 9:30 p.m.) has its “Tool Time” reunion.
