“Forgotten Hollywood”- Judy Garland Back on TV…

Manny P. here…

   Judy Garland is back, and getTV has got her. Join them as they celebrate arguably the world’s greatest entertainer that ever lived in all 26 episodes of The Judy Garland Show. This will be the first time the entire series has been broadcast in the United States since its premiere.


Judy Garland’s CBS series ran for only a short time, in 1963 and 1964, but featured great performances from Barbra Streisand, Lena Horne, Ethel Merman, Tony Bennett and other notables. Among the show’s highlights was Garland’s emotional performance of Battle Hymn of the Republic in late 1963 following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Facing Bonanza across the dial, the series ultimately didn’t capture enough viewers to last beyond its first season. The episodes were licensed from World Live Nation Entertainment.

   If you planning on joining Twitter on Monday to live tweet The Judy Garland Show, the cable channel is thrilled to announce that biographer John Fricke will be @getTV – sharing his extensive knowledge of Judy and her show, as well as answering your questions. Episodes of The Merv Griffin Show have also been acquired by the cable channel network. The programs will begin airing on Mondays at 8p ET starting October 12th.

   This is boffo entertainment… only on getTV.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
