LOL Colbert Report Video: Breaking Abbey Mashes Up Two Critical Darlings

Either the Albuquerque drug scene has gotten really civilized, or Downton Abbey is in worse shape than we thought.

See for yourself in the uncensored snippet of Thursday’s edition of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, in which host Stephen Colbert – mad that First Lady Michelle Obama was able to watch the series’ third season in advance of its Jan. 6 premiere — offered up a Downton Abbey/Breaking Bad mash-up.

The segment features the Brit hit’s Hugh Bonneville, Rob James-Collier and Jim Carter — plus another unexpected but oddly perfect guest, but we won’t spoil it for you.

Hit PLAY on the video below and then, if you’re not tweaking too hard for the “black chamomile crank,” hit the comments: What other shows would you like to see Colbert & Co. mess with?

    wow… i dont watch any of these 3 shows… but that was intense. rofl.

  2. Sheryl says:

    OMG…Really needed a laugh today. That was amazing!

  3. Erin says:

    I love all three of these shows. Stephen definitely knows how to do parodies right.

  4. Britta Unfiltered says:

    That was funny! Thanks for posting. Was that Mark Consuelos in there? Stephen should mass up Community with Mad Men (since Alison Brie already does both shows anyway). I think Jeff as Don Draper and Britta as Peggy and Troy as Roger and the Dean as Megan would be hilarious. Just picture the Dean singing Zou Bisou Bisou and try not to smile.

      That would be brilliant. I would LOVE to see that :D.
      Stephen’s show never fails to make me laugh. This was a fantastic mashup.

  5. fiyero says:

    that was the best thing in the world.

  6. Alex says:

    That was the most intense belly laugh I’ve enjoyed in ages! Kudos to Mark Consuelos for his Tuco performance I was genuinely frightened by him and his little pinkie!
    Three shows I love enormously coming together to create this little gem – I could not have dreamed it up myself.

    I would watch this show for real, please someone make it happen

    omg…so bloody brilliant!

    I can die and go to heaven now, with my 3 favorite shows coming together in one hilarious skit! Only thing that would’ve made it pitch-perfect? If Bryan Cranston himself showed up. Thank you, Stephen! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. Hmmm, another mash-up I’d love to see is THE WALKING DEAD mashed up BOARDWALK EMPIRE…
