Jimmy Fallon calls it 'Downton Sixbey' (in honor of his studio, 6B). I think of it as'Keeping Up With The Granthams' (hoping for the spinoff,' Lady Hedith and the Dowager Take Miami'). But whatever you call it, the 'Late Night' satire is a howling spoof of 'Downton Abbey'. Picking up on this season’s Downton plot, here the Earl of Sixbey reveals how he has lost the family fortune (it was not investing in a railroad).

Jimmy Kimmel Hosts the Emmys (UPDATED With New Video)

Jimmy Kimmel was a perfectly smooth host for the Emmys, though not a perfect fit. One of his trademarks, prankish humor – he asked viewers to Tweet that Tracy Morgan had passed out – didn’t translate to an awards show. His other trademark, irreverently taking swipes at the self-importance of show busines, was oddly missing. That was left to a few clever nominees. What worked best were the pre-arranged comic bits by winners and the people they beat. Julia Louis-Dreyfus read an acceptance speech Amy Poehler had supposedly slipped into her hand (that piece of paper was too big and crumpled to be anything other than a prop). Even better, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert wrestled Jon Stewart to the ground to keep him from heading to the stage when The Daily Show won Best Variety show.

If Downton Abbey is beginning to seem like a memory lost in the mist, if you are longing to hear Higgins the valet ask a footman, “Did you Febreeze His Lordship’s pantaloons?” you are ready for the new installment of Downton Sixbey from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

J.J.Abrams and Giancarlo Esposito go post-Apocalyptic, Jesse Spencer post-House fights fires in Chicago, and Matthew Perry tries again as a widowed sportscaster, in NBC’s fall series This week all the networks parade their new-season stars on stage for advertisers in their noisy Upfront extravaganzas, but they no longer even pretend to keep the schedules secret until then. NBC, whose Upfront happens Monday morning, has posted clips from its fall shows. Here are glimpses of the best.

Will Ferrell’s comedy is both incomparably goofy and totally droll about it, and both sides of his humor kicked in during his guest spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He was promoting his hosting spot on this week’s SNL, but also brought along the trailer for his new political comedy with Zach Galifianakis, The Campaign, coming in August.

When recorded series go live, it’s usually hard to overcome the stuntiness of it all. (Alec Baldwin promised in a promo that the live 30 Rock would be “liver” than ever, so we all get to make up new words). But 30 Rock found a brilliant, hilarious meta-solution by making its live show about live TV.

President Obama had a clear political agenda in visiting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, on the road at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill: reaching out to young voters and more specifically lobbying against a Congressional threat to increase interest on student loans. But how cool is it that he slow-jammed the news, a Late Night feature that seems surreal enough when Brian Williams does it?

Just when you’ve gotten through Downton Abbey withdrawal, here’s another parody to remind you of what’s missing from television: Jimmy Fallon and friends from Studio 6B give us Downton Sixbey. In the spirit of Jersey Floor, it sounds like a recurring Late Night series, which would be great (it will give Fallon a chance to work on a  consistent British accent). But this version is already fun for it guest appearances.

There has been an avalanche of hype and a little hand-wringing about the season premiere of Mad Men on Sunday. (Brief review: it’s good and answers some cliff-hanging questions in a flash.) But don’t let his amazing performance as Don Draper obscure the fact that Jon Hamm is a very funny guy, as we know from his appearances on SNL. Last night, he and Jimmy Fallon has a water war that redfines silliness.
