At the Television Critics Association fall previews for the Emmy-nominated Downton Abbey, PBS screened a trailer for Season 3 to a packed room in Beverly Hills Saturday. Judging from the sneak peek, when the show returns, the Crawleys will once again endure broken hearts, social hardship and Lady Violet's clever tongue.
Here are nine spoilers from the upcoming season...
Steven Tyler is walking this way and right out the door at American Idol. The Aerosmith lead singer has decided to leave the judges panel of the singing competition after two seasons, Fox announced Thursday.

Parminder Nagra, Alcatraz
Finally, Rebecca (Sarah Jones) and Diego (Jorge Garcia) know almost as much as the Alcatraz audience!
After Rebecca ponders what life would be like if she could hit the reset button, the pair finally learned about the colloidal silver, and that Lucy (Parminder Nagra) is... one of the '63s! Oh, and Lucy finally woke up from her coma, thanks to the blood of a '63 named Webb Porter (Rami Malek), a former patient of Lucille's who suffered from a ringing in his ears that drove him insane. Those are just a few of the new mysteries that Alcatraz introduced this week. Let's take a look at the others:
John Noble and Joshua Jackson
"I thought you'd be fatter."
From the moment Walter (John Noble) first opened his mouth on Fringe, fans have been treated to some of the most crazy (and hilarious) one-liners. In honor of the series' WonderCon panel, Fringe compiled the clip below filled with the best "Walterisms" over the last four seasons — including such lines as "I just pissed myself, just a squirt" and "Excellent, let's make some LSD!"

With only two episodes left before the finale, the video offers up a refresher on the intricate storylines as well as a first look at the season-ender. The finale will feature an epic car chase — not unlike Steve McQueen's from Bullitt — that culminates with Rebecca (Sarah Jones) and Tommy (David Hoflin) finally coming face to face. And Tommy ends up on the wrong end of a gun.

Nathan Parrett, Pip
Adam Levine has a very tough decision on his hands.
In Monday's upcoming battle round of The Voice, airing at 8/7c on NBC, Levine will put 19-year-old Pip against 24-year-old Nathan Parrett on the sultry and soulful Amy Winehouse classic "You Know I'm No Good." Musical theater vet Pip may have pushed the buttons of all four coaches when he auditioned during week 3 — compared to Nathan, who only got Adam to turn his chair around — but from the sound of things, this sing-off promises to be a...
Actress, singer, talk-show host and... model? Megan Mullally is about to make her runway debut on Tuesday's episode of Breaking In (9:30/8:30, Fox). So how did they talk her into it?
"Fortunately, I had not read the script very carefully, so I read it and I thought: underwear, fashion show, runway, I walk down it, whatever," Mullally told reporters last week on the set of the office comedy. "I just didn't think about the fact that I really had to do that. I'm glad I didn't."
