Upstairs, Downstairs fever is raging once again! Already seen by an audience of one billion in over 70 countries, the landmark British soap opera (1971-75) is coming back in an eagerly awaited PBS sequel April 10, with Jean Marsh still in the role of the deliciously officious Rose. What's more, the original series has just been released on DVD in a fabulous 40th anniversary edition (available at acornonline.com). The collector set includes all five seasons, over 25 hours of never-before-seen features, episode commentaries, cast interviews (both vintage and new) and an alternate ending to the series pilot. TV Guide Magazine spoke with one of the original's greatest stars, Lesley-Anne Down, now best known as the cougarific Jackie M on The Bold and the Beautiful. Back then she played the dazzling Lady Georgina Worsely. And, man, does Down have wild memories of her time at 165 Eaton Place!

Seriously, what the hell, ABC?
Ever since the network announced that Chris Brown would perform on last night's Dancing With the Stars results show — days after he trashed his Good Morning America dressing room in a fit of rage over being asked about his attack on Rihanna — we've all been scratching our heads. Sure, he has a hit record out right now, but he also has a record of hitting. It just didn't sit right with a lot of folks that this guy got a pass. Especially since it wasn't that long ago that Adam Lambert, who has never been charged with brutalizing anyone, was once banned from GMA for simply kissing a dude on the '09 American Music Awards.

The actress will appear in Wednesday's episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as June Frye, a piano teacher accused of killing a little girl after raping her with a rolling pin — a role Mitchell says she wasn't attracted to.
"Neal [Baer] asked me to do it," she says of SVU's executive producer, whom she worked with on ER. "He said, 'You can come work with Jeremy Irons, and we're writing a really messed-up role.
