   Sony Pictures Television Networks’ getTV has a weekly night of variety and talk programming from television’s Golden Age, airing weekly on Mondays. The lineup is headlined by The Judy Garland Show at 5p (pst). Each week’s programming will be repeated that same night at 8p (pst).

garland   In 1963, The Judy Garland Show was a celebrated entry on the CBS fall schedule. But, opposite Bonanza, the series ultimately didn’t capture enough viewers to last beyond its first season. Nevertheless, it remains a legendary lost series for showcasing the iconic Garland in both solo performances and with guests including Mel Torme, Jack Jones, Diahann Carroll, Bobby Darin, Ethel Merman, June Allyson, Barbra Streisand, Mickey Rooney, Donald O’Connor, Tony Bennett, and daughters Liza Minnelli and Lorna Luft.

   One of the show’s many highlights features Garland’s show-stopping rendition of Battle Hymn of the Republic, taped just days after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The performance was intended to help heal the country, and still resonates with critics today.

Her involvement with the television variety show was an opportunity for the star to fight her addiction, and reach a whole new generation of viewers. Sadly, the program was cancelled after a year that Garland called one of her happiest times.
