    My wife says "Down Town Abby" on PBS maybe. But I've looked at Titan, don't see it. But then I have trouble using Titan.

    Both seasons are FREE on Amazon Instant video with Prime. (so you can catch up)

    PBS usually does not show reruns.

    I got tired of hearing Craig Ferguson go on 'n on about it on his show.
    So in August, I downloaded the first two seasons.
    Season three just finished airing in the UK a few weeks ago.

    I liked it - something different - probably not for everyone. :)
    It made me go find the recent production of: Upstairs Downstairs.

    Just on a personal preference note ...
    I like watching marathon-style.
    Catching a continued story just once a week is harder to follow.

    Last Sunday, season opener, 125 Ku PBS - in HD.

    I would never have expected to enjoy this series - so much talking and a lot of aristocratic nonsense, but I think it's for the same reason other shows make it - there is a chemistry between the characters.

    Does anyone know when PBS is feeding the following week's episode of Downton Abbey and on which transponder?

    Since I may not have been clear, I know the show airs on the live eastcoast HD1 feed at 2100 EST on Sundays. However, most shows are pre-fed the week before so the station can record and rebroadcast. That helps to alleviate any rainfade, etc issues on the night the show is to air.

    Thanks

    I thought they went to internet feeding for their stuff. Could be wrong...

    Do they even show the Xmas Special on PBS? It's supposed to have Shirley Maclaine (sp) and Paul Giamatti.

    Are you talking about this year's Christmas special? The new season won't be released in the U.S. until next month. It just wrapped up in the UK, ending with the Christmas special.
