The Royal Wedding was dominating the television airwaves Friday (April 29) starting at 3:30 a.m. ET and lasting for as long as seven or eight hours for some stations. We’re wondering where you chose to watch the coverage and what you thought.
Of the ones we managed to take in, we thought BBC America, anchored by Huw Edwards, handled it the best with CNN a close second. The BBC featured serious guests and treated the festivities with the dignity they deserved. They were obviously enjoying their coverage, but not to the point of being silly.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Piers Morgan were a decent one-two punch of commentators and the always-charming Cat Deeley provided some cheeky humor and good fashion commentary. We thought CNN was pretty solid.
NBC had “Today” hosts Meredith Vieira, Matt Lauer and various other cast members from the morning program on the ground in London. They were … OK. They were having fun, but it got a little silly at times, as they seemed to not quite hold the event in the regard as the preceding two networks.
Over on CBS, Katie Couric seemed uncomfortable. She didn’t really appear to be enjoying herself and she seemed confused at times. We also didn’t love her pink outfit.
We did not get a chance to take in E! or ABC’s coverage, so please let us know in the comments what you thought if you were watching on those channels. And vote below in our poll – Where did you watch the Royal Wedding?
