Tonight E! broadcasts the Lance Bass Wedding Special, a documentary about the former boy band singer’s December nuptials. Unlike the network’s last marriage special—that Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries fiasco—we have a feeling this one is going to make it more than a few weeks after the checks are cashed. An ambassador for same-sex marriage, Bass will also be in town this morning for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau’s mass gay wedding on the beach. Check local listings for channel and show times.
