Now I don’t give a rat’s ass about any royalty doings of any sort, but there are plenty that do. I am startled to see that HBO cares about all the hoopla, but I guess it dare not upset any anglophiles in its audience. So HBO is covering the upcoming Royal Wedding. Bully for you! He is the official press release:

THE ROYAL WEDDING LIVE WITH CORD AND TISH!

SPECIAL STARRING BROADCAST LEGENDS

CORD HOSENBECK AND TISH CATTIGAN AND

PRODUCED BY FUNNY OR DIE,

DEBUTS MAY 19 ON HBO

Pasadena broadcast legends Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, celebrated around the world for their coverage of the annual Rose Parade, are heading across the pond to host the Royal Wedding. Produced by Funny Or Die, THE ROYAL WEDDING LIVE WITH CORD AND TISH! airs LIVE, exclusively on HBO, SATURDAY, MAY 19 at 7:30am(ET)/4:30am(PT), with a prime-time replay later that evening at 9:45pm (ET/PT).

“This wedding is going to be a blast,” said Cord Hosenbeck. “There will be more luxury packed into that church than all the Bed, Bath & Beyonds combined.” “Every little girl dreams of growing up and marrying a prince! Now I get to be front-row center of this fairytale romance. I’ll be crying all day!” added Tish Cattigan.

Anyone familiar with the Rose Parade knows that Cord and Tish bring a personal perspective to any special event. The veteran TV duo will team up with their old friend Tim Meadows and special guests to cover the wedding procession and festivities with their trademark dignity and grace. Hosenbeck is a frequent television and radio host dedicated to physical and mental wellness. He has authored more than 30 books on subjects ranging from diet to dressing for success. Cattigan, a former Miss Arizona, has written books about relationships, co-dependency, marriage and wellness. She’s also known for her two-episode stint as Assistant D.A. Keller on L.A. Law.

THE ROYAL WEDDING LIVE WITH CORD AND TISH! is produced by Funny Or Die; executive produced and written by Will Ferrell and Andrew Steele, alongside producer Molly Shannon. Funny Or Die’s Mike Farah and show runner Bellamie Blackstone are also executive producers.

Oh, thank the gods that HBO is not really covering that to-do. I mean, they aren’t are they? I guess we’ll find out. Man, I hope not. You?
