WATCH: Stephen Colbert recasts the men of 'Downton' in 'Breaking Abbey'

Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Michelle Obama asked for and received early access to "Downton Abbey's" third season, months ahead of American viewers. Angered by the preferential treatment shown to "Lady Michelle Antoinette," Stephen Colbert had "Downton Abbey" characters perform scenes from "Breaking Bad's" next season for a little mash-up he's calling, "Breaking Abbey."

It's worth it just to see "Downton's" Thomas tear up a tea bag and try to snort "black Chamomile crank" off a bronze serving dish. But when a goatee-sporting Lord Grantham says things like, "Soon 'Downton' will be kicking it with mad bitches and benjamins," you'll wonder where this show's been all your life.

"Downton Abbey's" third season premieres in the U.S. on January 6.
