Jimmy Fallon gives 'Downton Abbey' the 'Late Night' treatment

NBC / Today
The demanding Lord Fallon needs a joke on "Downton Sixbey."

The bounty of "Downton Abbey" spoofs just got a big boost with the latest addition from "Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon.

In the spirit of "Downton Arby's" and "The Fresh Prince of Downton Abbey," Fallon, with help from Brooke Shields, Fred Armisen and the whole "Late Night" crew, offered viewers a dramatic period piece based on the inner workings of his on-screen home, Studio 6B.

In the appropriately titled "Downton of Sixbey," Lord Fallon bemoaned the lack of Kardashian jokes in his monologue. That had the servants working hard for a fix.

Downstairs writer Bashir Salahuddin complained, "I don't think we can do another Kardashian joke."

"Well, that's what his lordship has asked for!" announcer Mr. (Steve) Higgins insisted.

Check out the unusable joke the lowly cue-card valet came up with in the clip below:
