Royal Ratings: 23M Watched the Wedding in U.S

The estimated U.S. television ratings for the Royal Wedding are out -- and they aren't terribly impressive, considering the endless attention they received. About 22.7 million Americans tuned in to watch Prince William and Kate Middleton exchange their vows at Westminster Abbey Friday morning, according to Nielsen estimates.

If (as the New York Times reported) the spectacle attracted 2.5 billion viewers around the world, the American television audience accounted for less than 1 percent of that figure.

William and Kate beat 1981's Charles and Diana nuptials in households 18.6 million to 14.2 million (although total viewer numbers for Charles and Diana are not available).
