With less than one month until the big day in lovely London, England royal wedding fever is almost at its peak around the world. As a result the television network, BBC America, decided to develop a program about uber-fanatical royal watchers from the United States and their royal fantasy adventures in England entitled, Royally Mad hosted by, Cat Deeley (you know… that lady who hosts the crapfest of a show on the FOX network called, So You Think You Can Dance on American TV.)
Here is the breakdown about this new reality show:
From an air steward to a wedding planner, the finalists come from all over the U.S. and include two life-long friends who live on opposite sides of the country and haven’t seen one another in 10 years. The one thing they ALL have in common – they ADORE the Royal Family. BBC AMERICA’s Royally Mad will give them the chance of a lifetime: to visit places associated with the Royal Family and the Royal Wedding and meet some of the people who know Kate and William and who are involved in the upcoming nuptials.

Look, I’ll be very blunt here: After watching the “Meet the Cast” clips on BBC America’s website, I have to admit that… I … um… well… cringed.
Now, I am sure the people on the show like Allison, Holly, Rich, Karen, and some other lady whose name escapes me at the moment are really lovely people, but I don’t know. Judging the “Meet the Cast” clips alone… something tells me this show is going to embarrass the hell out of these lovely people three years from now. Honestly, I hope the editors and producers of this show will refrain from making fun of these ardent royal watchers. I’m hoping for the best so… let’s see what happens when the show finally premieres on April 12, 2011 at 10pm ET/PT.

I know I am going to receive a hellva lot of angry mail from TRC readers for expressing thoughts about the “Meet the Cast” clips from the show Royally Mad aka Royally Embarrassed/A Royally Stupid Idea For a Reality Show but Hey We At BBC America Are Desperate to Milk the Crap Out of the Upcoming British Royal Wedding Because Our Ratings Suck On Our Network, but whatever. I can take it. 🙂
OH! One more thing: If you haven’t heard by now BBC America will broadcast the royal wedding live and commercial-free on April 29, 2011.
