If you think you can't find a network carrying the royal wedding on Friday, here's the first thing to ask: Have you turned on your TV?
Coverage of the event will air on ABC, NBC and CBS, and cable news channels CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. Most of those networks are starting their pre-game shows, so to speak, at 4 a.m.
This is the Super Bowl of nuptials after all.
Or if you want a veddy, veddy British atmosphere, you can tune in to BBC America, which is billing itself as "the home of the royal wedding." It plans to go live and commercial-free starting at 3 a.m. — an hour that should work for insomniacs, mothers of newborns and the most avid royal watchers.
Never miss a local story.
About 2 billion people are expected to watch all or some of the television hoopla — make that coverage — of the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. And that doesn't count the online participants who'll be following the action via live streaming, blogs or Twitter feeds.
With such a monumental audience up for grabs, many networks are vying for viewers. TLC is planning live coverage of the wedding and special programming leading up to the big occasion.
The Disney Channel has a week of prime-time shows, which began Monday and include princess-themed movies like Aladdin (8 p.m. Wednesday) and Princess Protection Program (8 p.m. Thursday).
Bravo is booking some queens of the Real Housewives realm for the Watch What Happens Live: Royal Wedding Spectacular at 11 p.m. Thursday. It will feature host Andy Cohen and guests Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, a New York real housewife, and Cat Ommanney, the tart-tongued British member of the D.C. housewives.
But back to the actual wedding. The choice of channels essentially comes down to which network personalities are your cup of tea. Here's a look at who's doing the hosting honors.
■ Diane Sawyer and Barbara Walters will helm the ABC News coverage, with contributions from media doyenne Tina Brown and royal historian Robert Lacey. 20/20 aired a special wedding-themed edition on Monday but will do so again at 8 p.m. Thursday.
■ NBC will offer special Today coverage of the wedding with NBC News anchor Brian Williams joining Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira and the rest of the team. At 8 p.m. Wednesday, Lauer and Vieira will cohost Inside the Royal Wedding, a behind-the-scenes documentary.
■ Katie Couric will lead the CBS News coverage with contributions from Early Show cohost Erica Hill. Couric will anchor the 6:30 p.m. evening news from London starting Wednesday through the wedding day, Friday.
■ Anderson Cooper and British import Piers Morgan will be part of the crew at CNN's live wedding program, which also will include appearances by So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley.
■ Fox News is putting Shepard Smith and Martha MacCallum in the host seats. Gretchen Carlson of Fox and Friends also will be on hand, as will royal experts like author Christopher Anderson.
■ If there's a red carpet (or something resembling a red carpet), E! is there. Giuliana Rancic anchors the entertainment network's coverage beginning at 4 a.m.
■ MSNBC will launch its coverage at 3 a.m. with Martin Bashir and Chris Jansing. The trenchant Morning Joe trio of Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinksi and Willie Geist will arrive at 5 a.m. Will Joe wear something other than a fleece jacket for the occasion?
After it's all over, who has the last word? Kathy Griffin. The comedian will host Kathy Griffin's Insightful and Hilarious Take on the Royal Wedding at 8 p.m. Friday on TV Guide Channel.
