Did you catch last nights Saturday Night Live? It Featured Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know"

Saturday Night Live Dec 7, 2013 
(Season 39 Ep. 8) 
"Diner Divorce" feat. Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know"
Host: Paul Rudd 
Musical Guests: One Direction.

Last nights show featured Fleetwood Mac's "I Don't Wanna Know" (from the 1977 Rumours album) during a skit with Paul Rudd, Vanessa Bayer, Kenan Thompson and Nasim Pedrad set in a Diner with Paul and Vanessa's characters sitting with their lawyers played by Kenan and Nasim arguing back and forth over their divorce settlement. In this segment called "Diner Divorce" which Entertainment Weekly called the "Worst Sketch" the two are seen arguing back and forth accusing the other for the breakdown of the marriage. Every so often (3 to be exact) the song "I Don't Wanna Know" would play (both their favourite song) and the conversation would break for a little happy groove session between the couple while their lawyers look on confused wondering if they really do want a divorce.  This would happen 3 times over the course of the segment. (Apparently because of copyright issues with the song, there isn't a clip available on-line like a number of the other clips from last nights show.)


After the second groove session, and their lawyers remarks about whether they really do want to divorce, Paul Rudd's character said "Yes, we do, but this song, I wish they'd stop playing this song". By the end of the skit and the third breakout groove session Paul's character says "Alright... who keeps playing that song!?" Kenan Thompson's character looks at his phone, speaks up and exclaims "Oh my goodness, that song is my ringtone. I've missed 3 calls... I'll never get that couch delivered"... Song begins playing again to end the skit... All four get up and groove to "I Don't Wanna Know".  Pretty cool... and not the traditional Fleetwood Mac song you hear, which is great!

This was the BEST skit on that particular SNL episode. There was hardly any (if any) cussing, nothing grotesque or disgusting or revolting or perverted about the skit. Why can's ALL of SNL's skits be funny like this with GOOD writing instead of resorting to being disgusting or revolting to get "shock" laughter? IF SNL WOULD USE QUALITY HUMOR ALL THE TIME, THEY WOULD BE EVEN MORE SUCCESSFUL.

I agree with all above replies. Diner Divorce was the funniest sketch I've seen in a long time. Luckily I was able to watch it a few times off a recording, but didn't realize when I deleted it that I wouldn't see it again. No respect for this Entertainment Weekly review.

Entertainment Weekly is crazy. I am not a big fan of Saturday Night Live but the Diner Divorce skit was hilarious.
