Galavant: Two Takes on Season 1, Including the Mildly 'Meh' Finale

11 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC’s Galavant wrapped its eight-episode freshman run on Sunday night by installing a new face on the throne, leaving another princess to be saved and sending two frenemies on a slow boat to… where, Mist Haven? Who knows.

Here, TVLine’s two biggest Galavant fans (Galafans?), Editor-at-Large Matt Webb Mitovich and West Coast Reporter Rebecca Iannucci, reflect on the ambitious musical-comedy’s maiden voyage and express reservations about what any possible Season 2 would look like.

We come here to primarily celebrate ABC’s Galavant as a whole, though I admittedly came away from the finale feeling a bit “meh. »

New Supernatural Season 10 Intense 2nd Half Spoilers Dished Out By The Producer

20 January 2015 12:38 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, TV Line talked with Supernatural executive producer, Robbie Thompson, and he spilled some very interesting spoiler scoopage for the back half of the current season 10. It turns out that we're going to see some very dangerous things go down with Charlie's return from Oz as something has apparently followed her. Dean will have more problems than ever before with that pesky Mark Of Cain, and more. In their spoiler report, here's what they had to say: "After the fall finale's blood bath, the Mark of Cain promises to be an even bigger issue than ever for Dean. Maybe Cain, himself, can help with that when Timothy Omundson (Psych) reprises his role? Also, Felicia Day's Charlie returns from Oz "under precarious circumstances," co-executive producer Robbie Thompson previews. "She's brought something back that's very dangerous. She teams up with the boys to track that dangerous thing down and hunt with them, »

Supernatural Boss Teases a "Pretty Dramatic" Twist Ahead for Dean

20 January 2015 9:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Start preparing yourselves now, Supernatural fans...there's a "pretty dramatic" twist coming up for Dean (Jensen Ackles).  But please don't shoot the messenger—those are executive producer Jeremy Carver's words, not ours! When we got the Supernatural boss on the line to dish on what's coming for the long-running CW series when it returns for the midseason premiere, he revealed that when Cain (Tim Omundson) does return, he's going to shed some light on the Mark of Cain and what it means for Dean. "Dean's interaction with Cain will have a profound effect on Dean, how he thinks about the mark, and how he thinks about himself with the mark," Carver tells E! »

Galavant: Cancel or Keep the ABC Musical Adventure Series?

19 January 2015 12:26 AM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

ABC recently unveiled something a bit different -- a fairy-tale style musical comedy called Galavant. How's it been doing in the ratings? Is the series a big success or is it hitting sour notes? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

On Galavant, a dashing hero (Joshua Sasse) once lost the love of his life (Mallory Jansen) to an evil king (Timothy Omundson). It's now time for him to exact his revenge and restore his "happily ever after" -- while singing. The rest of the cast includes Vinnie Jones, Karen David, Luke Youngblood, Ben Presley, Daniel Evans, Stanley Townsend, and Genevieve Allenbury.

The network decided to air the Galavant's eight half-hour episodes over the course of four weeks, to help fill the gap left by Once Upon a Time while that fairy tale show is on hiatus.

Primetime Musical ‘Galavant’ Reps Bold Venture for ABC

6 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Producing a TV series with original songs in every episode is always an ambitious undertaking. And precious few of them have succeeded.

ABC’s landmark Robert Morse musical “That’s Life” (1968) managed to last one season, NBC’s “Smash” (2012-13) limped along for two, while ABC’s infamous “Cop Rock” (1990) managed just 11 episodes.

With “Galavant,” which debuted Jan. 4 in the “Once Upon a Time” slot, ABC jumps back into the risky musical business with some very high-powered talent. Billed as “a medieval musical fairy tale,” it offers a handsome knight (Joshua Sasse) who teams up with a princess (Karen David) to win back his true love (Mallory Jansen) from the evil king (Timothy Omundson) who has married her.

The songs are by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, best known for his Disney scores “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast” and others; and lyricist Glenn Slater, Menken’s songwriting partner on Disney’s “Tangled” and, »

Galavant: Season One Ratings

5 January 2015 12:04 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

A musical comedy, ABC has been promoting their Galavant TV show as a "4-week comedy extravaganza" but they haven't ruled out producing a second season. Will it be a ratings smash or a flop? Cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

On Galavant, a dashing hero (Joshua Sasse) once lost the love of his life (Mallory Jansen) to an evil king (Timothy Omundson). It's now time for him to exact his revenge and restore his "happily ever after" -- while singing. The rest of the cast includes Vinnie Jones, Karen David, Luke Youngblood, Ben Presley, Daniel Evans, Stanley Townsend, and Genevieve Allenbury.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- »

Galavant Premieres: ABC's Medieval Musical TV Show is Here and It's So Much Fun

4 January 2015 6:14 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We don't know about you, but all it took was the idea of a singing, bearded Timothy Omundson for us to be like "Yasss Galavant!" The Psych fans in us were excited. The Princess Bride fans in us were thrilled. The musical television fans in us were jumping up and down with pure joy, and none of those people were disappointed by tonight's hour-long premiere. It was campy and ridiculous and basically just a lot of fun that we will gladly have over again each Sunday night at 8.  Galavant tells the story of a hero named Galavant (Joshua Sasse) who's determined to defeat the evil King Richard (Omundson), who has stolen Galavant's "true love."

Galavant Recap: A Little Knight Music — Grade ABC's New Musical-Comedy

4 January 2015 6:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC cued up Galavant, its musical-comedy “extravaganza” on Sunday night. Did the first two episodes of the midseason series leave you whistling a happy tune?

Exec-produced by Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors) and with music from Alan Menken and Glenn Slater (Tangled), Galavant stars Joshua Sasse (Rogue) in the title role, as a knight whose armor loses its lustre after his lady love, Madelena (Mallory Jansen), gets kidnapped by — and then agrees to wed — the wealthy King Richard (Psych‘s Timothy Omundson).

2015 Midseason Premieres To Get Excited About

4 January 2015 2:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While many may still be catching up on some of the great television from 2014, programming in 2015 is starting earlier than ever. Gone are the days of months-long hiatuses and January and Februarys full of repeats. This year looks to be just as jam-packed as last year, with interesting television coming from any number of sources. Here are Chief TV Editor Kate Kulzick and Managing TV Editor Deepayan Sengupta’s picks for new premieres to keep an eye out for in the coming weeks.

Galavant

Created by Dan Fogelman

Airs Sundays at 8pm and 8:30pm (Et) on ABC

Premieres Jan. 4th, 2015

Musicals have been a genre rarely explored on television, and fairy tales even less so. Thus, the idea of a new show in either category is an intriguing one and a show that combines the two, as Galavant does, is an exciting prospect. With a four-week run (eight half-hour »

Wamg Checks in With Composer Christopher Lennertz On The Wedding Ringer, Horrible Bosses 2, “Galavant” And “Agent Carter”

Scoring Sessions

From scores featuring Horrible Bosses, Marvel Agents, and Knights to movie soundtracks starring Kevin Hart and more Kevin Hart, Christopher Lennertz hasn’t slowed his TV/film composing pace since we last interviewed him during the release of Think Like A Man Too.

With audiences embracing Horrible Bosses 2 after its November 2014 opening (as of Dec. 28, 2014: $93M worldwide), I recently spoke with Lennertz about the sequel, his upcoming films The Wedding Ringer and Ride Along 2, as well as composing for ABC’s new musical comedy, “Galavant” and “Marvel’s Agent Carter.”

Wamg: Coming up on January 16th is The Wedding Ringer. Audiences from the early screenings are saying it’s very funny.

Cl: It’s getting really great feedback. The Nsfw red-band trailer is absolutely hilarious. The movie is described as The Hangover meets Something About Mary.  The funny thing about it is it looks like »

‘Galavant’ Review: ABC Musical Series Hits All the Right Notes

4 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Arrive to ABC’s event series “Galavant” with all the skepticism you can muster. I surely did. A musical comedy that will be instantly compared to the iconic Monty Python productions? I prepared myself for the worst.

To tell you the truth, I didn’t believe that we had the talent today to pull off the delicate balance of a comedic musical fairy tale series set in medieval times. Then, throw in the challenge of a hardened audience and the feat becomes even more difficult.

Galavant Review: ABC’s Madcap Midseason Musical

3 January 2015 12:12 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you've watched ABC at all in the past several months, you'll already know something of their new single-camera series Galavant.  It's a musical (of sorts) packed into a comedy format (of sorts) that takes its plot cues from The Princess Bride, and its thematic guidance from Mel Brooks.  This oddball creation comes from Dan Fogelman (The Neighbors), with the help of famous film composer Alan Menken (creator of every song you know from Disney in your past) and Menken's lyricist cohort Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid and many others).  Hit the jump for whether you should watch, or just go to Medieval Times. Galavant follows the adventures of the dashing knight -- Galavant (Joshua Sasse) -- as he attempts to rescue his lady love, Madalena (Mallory Jansen) from the clutches of the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson).  But early on there's a subversion to this trope, and instead, Galavant »

TV Review: ‘Galavant’

2 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Owing a strong debt to Monty Python and a lesser one to spoofs like “When Things Were Rotten,” “Galavant” largely overcomes the challenges that have traditionally bedeviled TV musicals with rambunctious energy, cheeky lyrics and music, and — significantly — a half-hour format, thus condensing the need to create songs into a manageable task. Granted, this ABC series is so unlike anything else on the network’s lineup that the only lead-in the network could think of, ultimately, was itself, airing back-to-back episodes. Whether this inspired silliness has legs beyond musical-theater geeks and TV critics is anybody’s guess, but “Galavant” hits the ground running.

From the opening number (and good luck getting the Alan Menken-written title tune out of your head), “Galavant” serves notice that the derring-do will involve more word play than swordplay, as the narrator sings, “Now at last begins a true adventure. Epic, wild, a real butt-clencher. »

Review: ABC's 'Galavant' has catchy songs, off-key comedy

2 January 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A couple of seasons ago, ABC debuted a show called "The Neighbors" where the pilot seemed less like a sitcom than a practical joke ABC boss Paul Lee was perpetrating on TV critics and the audience at large: We're ABC, and we can schedule anything we want after "Modern Family"(*) and have it do okay! Even a sitcom about aliens named after famous athletes! (*) Technically, "The Neighbors" only aired a couple of times after "Modern Family," as Lee blinked at the last minute and slid it to Wednesdays at 8:30, then moved it to Fridays for its second and final season. But "The Neighbors" turned out to be a fine example of the phenomenon where a bad pilot can lead to a good show, as I discovered later in that season when the series did a musical episode called "Sing Like a Larry Bird." The collaboration between "Neighbors" creator Dan Fogelman, »
