Clip of the Day: Downton Sixbey

On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, they often do parodies of many popular TV shows and rework them to be about what goes on behind the scenes of Late Night.  So far, there's been "7th Floor West" (parody of The Hills), "Real Housewives of Late Night" (parody of the Real Housewives franchise), "6-Bee" (parody of Glee), "Late" (parody of Lost), and "Jersey Floor" (parody of Jersey Shore). There hasn't been a new TV show parody in a while, that was until Thursday night's show when Jimmy and the gang released "Downton Sixbey", a parody of the popular PBS period drama Downton Abbey.  While I've never actually watched Downton Abbey, I really enjoyed Jimmy's parody, and can't wait to see what happens next.  Check out Episode 1 below, and be on the look out for some great cameos (including one from an SNL cast member!)

And while we're on the subject of Downton Abbey spoofs, check out this SNL clip of Downton Abbey on Spike:
