Spotted Ratings, Friday 4/29/11: The Royal Winning


WHAT MATTERS:
  • All of the big three had some form of royal wedding coverage on this first Friday of sweeps. The standout was CBS' "The Royal Wedding: Modern Majesty", which not only led the evening outright but was also one of CBS' best performances at 8:00 this season and helped send all other shows in the 8:00 hour down double digits from their last originals. That meant outright series lows for Kitchen Nightmares and Friday Night Lights along with a season low for Smallville just two weeks from its series finale.
  • Later in the evening, it was ABC's royal wedding 20/20 over NBC's coverage on Dateline. Everything else was about on par with recent originals.
