Was Royal Wedding TV’s most-watched event?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Was this morning’s Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton the most-watched television event in our history?

If you based it on coverage, it’s a no-brainer. The ceremony seemingly was on every television channel in the States, causing plenty of people to vent their frustrations on Facebook and Twitter.

But don’t worry, Americans. We weren’t alone.

“The BBC feed alone was broadcast to 180 countries, in what is thought to be the biggest television event in broadcast history,” THR reports. “Networks from CCTV in China, NDTV in India, France 24, Al Jazeera English tore up their news schedules to carry the ceremony in real time, in addition to all the main U.S. networks.”

So sorry, “M*A*S*H” finale, but your time at the top of the charts likely has come to an end.
