Child’s play

I’m all for former child stars getting a second chance, but “Hollywood Darlings” strands grown-ups Beverley Mitchell (“7th Heaven”), Jodie Sweetin (“Full House”) and Christine Lakin (“Step by Step”) with a subpar script and few opportunities to really send themselves up. “The Return of the Mac,” which immediately follows, fares slightly better as Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block gamely struggles to be taken seriously as a dramatic actor. He shouldn’t plan on abandoning their reunion tour anytime soon.

The accusers

“Exposed With Deborah Norville,” Reelz’s latest attempt to become the home of tabloid TV, kicks off with an in-depth look at the rape allegations against Bill Cosby. Guests include Janice Dickinson, Carla Ferrigno and Victoria Valentino. Norville may not have developed into a major player, but at least she has some journalistic integrity, which can’t be said of many of her peers.

Everybody dance now

Few series last year had as much visual pop as “The Get Down,” Baz Luhrmann’s tribute to the New York music scene in the 1970s. The series returns with six new episodes set in 1978. A second season was up in the air, as each episode reportedly cost Netflix $16 million.
