Something extraordinary happened last night on The Colbert Report. It was entitled Breaking Abbey – a mad funny mash-up of Breaking Bad using the characters of Downton Abbey. (And the actors: Hugh Bonneville, Rob James-Collier and Jim Carter).

Can you smell what the Earl of Grantham is cooking? Watch for a very unusual cameo for Mark Consuelos. This, folks, is a keeper.
