Scarcely have the holidays departed, the last bite of figgy pudding or sip of egg nog cycled through our system, the last present sorted for use or reuse, than the winter television season comes crashing down upon us, laden with gifts of its own. Yes, friends, there are more television shows to watch, and quite a few are shows you will want to watch or feel as a citizen of the culture that you really should watch. Damn you, New Golden Age of Television! Do you think we are made of time?

Here is a look at not even all of it.

Jan. 4

"Galavant"

ABC, 8 p.m. Sundays

Medieval-modern musical comedy will recall "Spamalot"/"Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "The Princess Bride" to anyone who was alive to see them, but songs by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, who have Disney features under their belt (and are working for Disney here) are catchy and some jokes do make it through the briers. Not G-rated, it seems worth pointing out.

Jan. 6

"Child Genius"

Lifetime, 10 p.m. Tuesdays

Like "MasterChef Junior," for knowing math and history and stuff.
