So many interesting facts here (besides the fact that it cast a quarter of a million).

Weiner was told that this was the only time a Beatles song (read: original not cover) has been in a TV show, outside of the band’s live performances.

Weiner also insists that he didn’t break the bank with the choice and that the cost should not be the talking point here.
