Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Pop TV kicks off two new comedy series starring former celebrities playing exaggerated versions of themselves trying to reinvigorate their careers. First up is the improvised comedy, Hollywood Darlings, which follows real-life friends/former ’90s child stars Jodie Sweetin (Full House, Fuller House), Christine Lakin (Step By Step), and Beverley Mitchell (7th Heaven) as they juggle reviving their careers with being busy wives and moms. Pop TV aired a “preview” episode of the series last week.

Then, the scripted comedy Return of the Mac follows the misadventures of New Kids on the Block member Joey McIntyre and his real-life family – wife Barrett and their three children, Griffin (8), Rhys (6), and Kira (5) – as he struggles to be taken as a serious actor. However, this plan is derailed when he ends up taking a role as a talk-show host for the fledgling Comfy Channel cable network. The series also stars Adam Ray (MadTV revival), Jamie Denbo (Childrens Hospital), Katie Wee, Punam Patel (Kevin from Work), and Jordan Black (Shaded).

This looks like it’s going to be a really fun and somewhat nostalgic hour of TV. Plus, there are sure to be loads of surprise celebrity guests/former co-stars on both of these shows.

On the premiere of Hollywood Darlings, “How Christine Got Her Groove Back,” Beverley and Christine have a day of unconventional relaxation, and Jodie substitute teaches an acting class for kids.

Then, in the premiere of Return of the Mac, “New Kid on the Talk,” Joe pitches a drama at the Comfy Channel, but he’s talked into hosting his own talk show instead.

Enjoy this hour of new TV tonight on Pop TV starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Designated Survivor, Survivor, Empire, Archer, Brockmire, The Magicians, The Expanse, Major Crimes, and Nobodies.
