NBC's 'Saturday Night Live' cut a Ferguson-related skit from this weekend's episode due to "time constraints," but made it available online.

The iconic sketch comedy show has barely scratched the surface of the Ferguson protests this season, and it appears producer Lorne Michaels made a last-second change to again avoid the contentious issue.

SNL vets Keenan Thompson and Cecily Strong star as morning talk show hosts for a St. Louis-area television station.

They struggle to talk about anything, even a cooking segment where a guest chef with the unfortunate name Darrell Wilson says using only the egg whites is more healthy.

"Use the whole damn egg," Thompson urges him.

An African American traffic reporter flies her helicopter from St. Louis to Chicago.

"I'm never coming back," she shouts at the hosts, who say her leaving was probably a good idea.

The skit is genuinely funny. Which, given the subject matter was no small task, but was somehow deemed unfit for the late night airwaves.
