A ‘Downton Abbey’ marathon
Just in case anyone wants to relive all the events of Season 3 on “Downton Abbey” (hmm, it just occurred to me that the final moment of the season was foreshadowed long ago, when the Crawleys’ chauffeur ran off with Lady Sybil): KCTS9 is offering a marathon of the entire season this Sunday, starting at noon. The channel’s PR person let me know of the event, and also sent along some interesting facts about Seattle and “Downton Abbey”: In general, Seattle viewership was 30 percent higher than the national average, and, when the seven episodes of the season were considered individually, Seattle had the highest Nielson ratings in the country for six of them. The exception: Episode 2, otherwise known as Lady Edith’s Wedding That Wasn’t, for which Seattle, for some reason, was behind Boston and Austin.
“Do I look like a frolicker?” Happy weekend, all.
