Here's your exclusive look inside my personal TV watching habits: I stopped watching Downton Abbey in season three because I could no longer muster up any concern over whether or not a rich family lost one of their several mansions. That said, I will tune in for The Britishes, the new DirectTV/College Humor sketch series that parodies Downton Abbey, because there are few things I love more than costume dramas and Lord Grantham's stand-in, Peter Serafinowicz.

From Deadline:

A collection of eight sketches, "The Britishes" parodies the world depicted on hit British costume drama "Downton Abbey" in a style inspired by the absurdist sensibility of another staple of British television, comedy classic Monty Python's Flying Circus. The series, written by Big Breakfast's in-house creative team, will become the digital company's first project to get a TV play when it premieres on DirectTV's Audience Network on October 28.

In addition to Serafinowicz (who you might know from his brief stint on Parks and Recreation), The Britishes will also star Mad TV's Will Sasso.
