13 Shows To Watch Friday Morning Instead Of The Royal Wedding

crawford

The monarchy-saving Royal Wedding kicks off early Friday on the East Coast.

The coverage — already causing chaos with morning shows — will escalate to epic proportions.

All the networks are planning major shows around the event of the year. The sets in London are built. The anchors and correspondents are in place. NBC’s Twitter hashtag — #royalwedding — continues to gain momentum.

Now all there is to do is wait.

But… what if you would rather not watch Prince William tie the knot with Kate Middleton? Are there other options?

Of course there are.

Plenty, in fact.

The Wire scoured the television listings for Thursday night and Friday morning to come up with some options for those royal wedding-weary souls. We found at least a dozen of shows you could view instead. (At times EST)

Enjoy.
