“Downton Sixbey,” Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night” parody of “Downton Abbey,” returned Tuesday night for a third hilariously somber installment. Episode three picks up with “Downton’s” rightful heir Carson Daly suffering yet another freak hot air balloon accident with Usher and Shakira. Adding insult to injury, the Earl has squandered the family’s fortune with flop investments in shake weights and the chain restaurant Thank Heaven Friday is Here (aka THFIH). With hard times upon them, the family is forced to take some cost-cutting measures, like sharing the same backwashed glass of wine at dinner. Downstairs, the humiliations continue as the staff must face the indignity of recycling old jokes. Fortunately, there’s a silver lining to this tale in the form of an unlikely proposal to Lady Hedith, which, unlike the real “Downton,” will probably never happen again.
