BWW Column: How Can GALAVANT Improve if Renewed for Unlikely Third Season?BWW Column: How Can GALAVANT Improve if Renewed for Unlikely Third Season?

The second season of ABC's medieval musical comedy GALAVANT opens with a song entitled 'A New Season,' a direct response to the nearly unanimous opinion that it would be cancelled after its initial eight-episode run.
