The Tellyvangelist – Royal Wedding Edition: April 25 – 29

Prince William and Kate Middleton

This week, royal wedding-philes have a choice: skip work or give their DVR’s a workout. It seems that every television network — with the possible exception of ESPN Classic — is devoting some programming to the royal nuptials. The criterion for inclusion on this list is that the show (with the exception of news) could not be part of a regular series. Kourtney and Kim Kardashian discussing Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress would not make the cut. All times are Eastern, and unless indicated otherwise, the show length is an hour. Even pre-Super Bowl coverage doesn’t last this long.
