The impending arrival of 2013 doesn't just mean we'll have survived the Mayan apocalypse. It also means that the third season of everyone's favorite British upstairs/downstairs soap Downton Abbey is coming to American TV (is it January 6th yet?). Which means a whole cross-section of the show's cast is in town to talk to the press, go to "basketamazeballs" Knicks games and, best of all, tweet pictures of themselves riding our underground.

Yup, as you can see above at least Rob James-Collier (Thomas), Hugh Bonneville (the Earl of Grantham), Sophia McShera (Daisy), Joanne Froggatt (Anna) and Brendan Coyle (Mr. Bates) are in town and have gotten ahold of some MetroCards. And luckily Bonneville is tall enough to turn a "Downtown" sign into "Downton." Shame they weren't around for the brief life of the "Dowtown" sign.

But really, is it January 6th yet? Because it is getting harder and harder not to get spoiled by the Internet.
