Royal Ratings: 23M Watched the Wedding in U.S.

The estimated U.S. television ratings for the Royal Wedding are out --  bored3 and they aren't terribly impressive, considering the endless attention they received. About 22.7 million Americans tuned in to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton exchange their vows at Westminster Abbey Friday morning, according to Nielsen estimates.

the overall ratings suggest Americans -- already fatigued by the excessive coverage leading up to the ceremony -- either didn't care enough about the pomp and pageantry to get up that early, or they were watching online.

The wedding ratings were lackluster in the U.S.   bored3

We have had more important things on our minds and quite frankly we already have so much going on that to penetrate the American psyche for attention takes a large amount of effort.

I prefer 'garbage' m'self.  It's got a better ring to it and is absolutely true.  How ANY media personality has recovered their credibility by stating this bloated fantasy of a number is beyond me.  Oh, to have Walter Kronkite(s) back who waited.  Hear that?  WAITED for the facts.

The press is hyping this just to make a dream come true, a desperate dream that they are in need of re-experiencing. Like the RF, the press needed this wedding as a huge rejuvination, a second glorious rebirth of the glory days of the monarchy, for different reasons. The RF, so they could have another infusion of popularity and the press so they could have the glory days of massive sales back. I think the British public just wanted to have the days when Britain was THE center of things and London was fashionable beyond just a place to film movies. Quite frankly every single side was let down with this wedding; Kate and William made fools of everyone.

I am proud to say that I did not watch it when it happened and since the only thing I have viewed is the rather perfunctory dip/curtsey Kate did in front of the Queen.  Numbers are always misleading and I think the royals should look for the real sentiment of the public.

I'm sure that if they did, that they would be packing bags and finding a place to fly to in exile. The riots that happened right before the wedding and the explosion of unrest should have been more than enough of an indicator.
