On Saturday, NBC's "Saturday Night Live" opened the show mocking Al Sharpton talking about the reaction to the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City. But what that audience didn't know is that the show had another Ferguson-related sketch scheduled for later that never aired because it was cut for time.

The sketch features Cecily Strong and Keenan Thompson as hosts of a St. Louis morning news program struggling to do the show in light of the events in Ferguson. It's filled with double meanings (the mention of a "superior race" in reference to a local 5k run) and an appearance by James Franco who plays a chef unfortunately named Darrel Wilson whose recipe only calls for the "white" part of the eggs.

"A St. Louis news station reconsiders its morning programming in light of the Ferguson riots," the video's description reads.

Watch the sketch, which NBC posted on the SNL YouTube channel, below:
