OUR VICARIOUS HIGHNESSES:

Ratings: Millions watched Royal Wedding; ceremony draws more households than Charles and Diana (James Hibberd, 5/02/11, Entertainment Weekly)

Despite starting at 6 a.m. on a weekday, the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton drew a king-size U.S. audience Friday morning.

The wedding coverage was carried live from about 6 a.m. to 7:15 a.m. on 11 networks and drew 22.8 million viewers and 18.6 million households, according to Nielsen Media Research. [...]

By comparison, about the same number of people watched American Idol’s performance show this week (22 million), and 28.9 million watched President Obama’s inauguration.
