The good people over on Vanity Fair have dreamed up these divine “Downton Abbey” trading cards. Poor Edith. They’re right about Dr. Clarkson, too. He is the worst. (Vanity Fair)

While on the subject of “Downton Abbey” (more on the Christmas special in the next hour), here are 7 other famous Abbey’s in England. (Mental Floss)

Does Adele’s “Someone Like You” make you cry? There are scientific reasons for this. (Dave Chen)

We haven’t seen an episode since December, but “Community” wrapped up season three filming with Alison Brie And Danny Pudi Performing ‘Everybody Dance Now.’ (UPROXX)

Speaking of “Community,” “Inspector Spacetime” is totally getting its own web series. (Mary Sue)

Seven terribly attractive actors landed pilots last week. I rank them by hotness (Note: If I’d posted this on Pajiba, I’d have switched Moennig and Kreuk. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE.) (Warming Glow)

“The Simpsons” aired its 500th episode last night (here’s the awesome closing title card), and during that time, there have been 244 other shows on Fox that have come and gone. Here’s the entire list (which naturally includes “Firefly.”) (Screenjunkies)

Confiscating your 14-year-old’s newly purchased video game? That’s a stabbin’. (Kotaku)

Best real headline of the political season so far: “Santorum blasts Obama during Cumming rally.” (Access North Georgia via Harmalicious)

Dean Parisot — the director of the phenomenal Galaxy Quest — has just signed on to one of the rare sequels I actually don’t mind. You can never have enough Helen Mirren. (Slashfilm)

Robert Fure takes aim at cable TV’s DVR services, which aren’t properly synced with programming. Nothing pisses me off more than when CBS overruns push back “The Good Wife” and I’m forced to use valuable DVR space to record “CSI: Miami” to get my Josh Charles fix. (FSR)

Gary Busey may be bankrupt, but thank God he’s still rich in bull’s heads, moccasins, and tambourines. (Film Drunk)

Chris Brown HATES seagulls. (Buzzfeed)

This list of eight of the most shocking scenes in comic books pulled me in straight away with “Hyde rapes the Invisible Man TO DEATH.” What? Also, minor spoiler on a potential upcoming “Walking Dead” development that sounds amazeballs (and makes me sad that John Hawkes didn’t sign on to the role). (Unreality)

You’re probably sick to death of Whitney Houston coverage by now, but this. THIS. Chris Cornell’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” will rip the wet out of your tears.
