SNL Re-run is edited tonight, sans the Sandlers

NBC is so lame

NBC is re-running the Saturday Night (not-so) Live episode tonight that contained a skit that attempted to tell how the subprime crisis really started. The digs at Pelosi and Frank were great, so was the couple who were caught flipping when the downturn hit. Shortly after the original episode, in which the real story of the Sandlers was told, the Sandlers complained to NBC about their actual activities being represented in the sketch. Tonight, the Sandler bit was cut out of the re-run.

I can understand pulling material from the internet. But making money from a re-run while editing out parts that some thought objectionable (personally, I thought the poking-fun at President Bush really sucked) is really poor business decision, and really classless.
