What To Avoid On April 29 If You Don't Want To See The Royal Wedding

The royal wedding is less than a month away, and the buzz surrounding the one-day event has already reached a(n extremely annoying) fever pitch. To avoid intaking too much wedding news, which might lead to fits of tulle-induced rage, we suggest avoiding the following: All major television channels—and even some not-so-major ones like the Weather Channel—will be broadcasting Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding on April 29, with some eager-beaver stations beginning their coverage as soon as April 15. More than 20 hours of coverage is planned on the day-of for NBC. Additionally, news stations will start broadcasting on the actual day beginning at 4 a.m. EST, but Dateline will air an "instant documentary" during hours where more people than the over-80 set will be awake. Bravo, E!, CNN, Fox, and CBS are also stations to avoid, as they'll be doing their own special coverage. Skip the newsstands on the following days, as The New York Post, People, Us Weekly, Time, Newsweek, The Daily Beast, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair have publicly announced that they'll be joining in on the media blitz. And, you know—all of Twitter. On second thought, it might be a good time to plan a little remote, no-tech vacation on the 25th—that might be the only way to escape the entire thing. (WWD)
