A new episode of Saturday Night Live airs tonight with host Josh Hutcherson. However, we’re still reeling from last week’s hilarious episode featuring Lady Gaga. With the good outweighing the bad (which is a rarity these days on SNL, let’s face it) the episode was not one to be missed.
One sketch, however, did not make it to air. These things sometimes happen when the crowd reaction isn’t what they want during dress rehearsal. Or perhaps they were strapped for time. The unaired sketch “Female Sea Captains” features the female cast members, including Gaga, encountering male mermaids on the open sea.
I can kind of see why this didn’t make it to air. Out of all the things that did that night, this one probably would have been on the “dud” list. I didn’t chuckle that much. Someone must have checked digital recorder reviews and listened back to Gaga’s singing and realized that Gaga’s performances would be the most talked about of the night. Why waste that on mermaids?
