Musical score undercuts enjoyment of show

I would love to lose myself in the Cable Girls series but am jerked out of their reality by the musical scoring of contemporary music. I mute the most egregious bits with synthesizer and electric guitar and just read the subtitles. What a shame - otherwise the show is fun with good sets and costumes.
