Why did ‘SNL’ cut this Guy Fieri sketch?

K. Thor Jensen Contributing Writer, Entertainment

Is it no longer legal to make fun of Guy Fieri? First Twinkies, now this. The rotund Diners, Drive-Ins And Dives host has been in the news a lot lately, with his new Times Square restaurant getting totally torn apart by the New York Times (and our friends at Uproxx). From all accounts, it’s a horrific garbage pile serving up greasy, awful food at ludicrous prices. Saturday Night Live had a Fieri sketch scheduled, but for some reason it was cut from the show. We do have footage of the dress rehearsal, though, so let the theorizing commence as to why we didn’t see it on the air.
