This weekend on TV: 'Downton Abbey' is back!
This photo released by PBS and Carnival Film and Television Limited shows Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith in a scene from season four of the Masterpiece TV series, "Downton Abbey." As it returns for its much-awaited fourth season, "Downton Abbey" remains a series about elegance, tradition and gentility, and the pressures of preserving them. The show premieres Sunday, January 5, 2014 at 9 pm ET on PBS. (AP Photo/PBS/Masterpiece, Nick Briggs)
