Preliminary ratings for the Most Boring Wedding of the Decade are in: Roughly 17 million people attended Trista and Ryan's Wedding on ABC last night, making it Wednesday's top program. But the two-hour doze-a-thon fell short of other recent reality events, including Monday's climax of Average Joe (17.4 million viewers) and the Bachelor finale in November (18.6 million viewers). Even more telling: Ratings dipped during the final half-hour of the nuptials, a sign that many viewers either A) fell asleep, B) tossed a grenade at their TV sets, C) rushed to the bathroom to hurl, or D) committed suicide. Nielsen is currently investigating.
