While you were working ...

... or shopping, or eating leftovers, or trying to squeeze into your pants, here's some news you might've missed:

  • Meanwhile, Rihanna and Chris Brown supposedly celebrated Turkey Day in Berlin. [HuffPo]
  • Talk about having a lot to be grateful for: Country singer Jake Owen welcomed a baby girl on November 22. "Today is the greatest day of my life," he tweeted. "Welcome Olive Pearl Owen. 6lbs 3 oz Turkey Baby!!!" [Jake Owen's Twitter]
  • The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is typically just an appetizer before we settle in for the dog show, and it seems the youth of America agree. Thursday's "The National Dog Show presented by Purina" was the highest-rated edition in six years. [EW]

'Downton Abbey' gets a fourth season

Our national obsession with "Downton Abbey" can continue uninterrupted. The Los Angeles Times reports that the drama has been renewed for another season.

The British show's broadcaster, ITV, made the happy announcement Friday, with executive producer Gareth Neame telling fans they can expect "more drama, comedy, love, hatred, jealousy, rivalry, ambition, despair and romance."

We're a little bit behind on this side of the pond, as the third season of "Downton Abbey" isn't going to air in the U.S. until January 6 on PBS.

The fourth season, meanwhile, will start production on its eight episodes in February and will air in the U.K. in the fall. PBS has yet to speak on the renewal news, but we're hoping, like the L.A.T., that the network's likely on board.

Taylor Swift: I still have a lot to learn

With her mega-successful career, one might think that country pop star Taylor Swift has it all figured out.

But the 22-year-old singer/songwriter warns that she doesn't have a clue - at least, not as many as growing older will eventually bring.

"I have so much to learn about life," Swift told Parade magazine. "I know nothing compared to what I'm going to know someday."

What Jamie Lee Curtis thinks of ScarJo playing her mom

Anthony Hopkins wasn't the only "Hitchcock" star who was sensitive about his new role.
