Default I Don't Want to Know on SNL

There was a dumb skit on SNL tonight with Paul Rudd and Vanessa Bayer playing a couple who was meeting with their lawyers to sign their divorce papers, when a song, IDWK, starts playing, and they start jamming to it. They played a small part of it 3 or 4 times in the skit. The big question is why IDWK? Do you think Paul Rudd had anything to do with it?

Well, it IS on the greatest divorce album ever.

I Don't Want To Know is kind of an odd choice, it's probably the most obscure song on the album.

From Yahoo News:

http://news.yahoo.com/39-snl-39-mvp-...170700527.html

Look, this was a weak episode, so you shouldn't be surprised that the MVP is going not to a cast member, or even the host, but instead to Fleetwood Mac. Try to dispute me. The unquestioned best sketch of the night was the one with Rudd and Vanessa Bayer as a separated couple working out the details of their divorce, alongside their attorneys. In the middle of a series of accusations, most of which revolve around the ridiculous names and occupations of their current significant others, they're interrupted Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Want to Know." At which point, Rudd and Bayer are overcome by the song, and their involuntary chair dancing is some of the finest ever produced by middle-aged white people. Of course, the scourge of music rights means this is the one sketch that can't stream on Hulu, because God forbid we deprive the rights-holders for Rumours any fraction of their billions in royalties. As if SNL didn't do enough for Lindsey Buckingham during all those "What Up With That?" sketches.

I think it's pretty funny they just include Lindsey Buckingham as a "guest" at all. SNL is not a very strong show throughout any episode (in the last several years,) but I like that they reference Fleetwood Mac.

Entertainment Weekly

Deep breaths, dear SNL-watching, squee-happy readers, because even though last night’s show paraded out surprise guests like Captain von Trapp did his children in The Sound of Music Live & Condensed, the strong sketches that opened the evening quickly led to lackluster ones with diminishing returns that didn’t effectively showcase host Paul Rudd nor had any particularly inspired ideas (there are exceptions, of course — more on those below).

None of this is Paul Rudd’s fault. The host, taking the reins for third time, lathered on his signature charm and gamely tackled every character the writers tossed at him: an unpaid Huffington Post contributor, the rabid Directioner dad Dan Charles, one half of the divorcing couple who just can’t help dancing to Fleetwood Mac, the humiliated male model for Michelangelo’s David, the star of White Christmas, the newly skinny Santa Claus, the unwelcome ghost of hook-up past from a pizza joint, and finally, one of the Bill Brasky Buddies.

They edited this skit out of the "on demand" version.

It pisses me off so much the way all the SNLs after 1979 are completely stripped of the music content that was part of what made the show so culturally influential (back in the day). Thank goodness for fan uploads of Stevie's and Lindsey's appearances on there in the 80s or we'd never see them.

It always bothers me that when you try to watch SNL videos on Netflix or on demand, even the musical guests get cut out of the episodes. So lame.
