Two more sketches of Chris Rock's were edited for TV and not for video. For example, the "Russell Simmonds' Def Emergency Room Jam" has all the bad words bleeped, on NBC the part where the doctor (Chris) yells "Breathe nigga!" three times changed to one. When released to video on THE BEST OF CHRIS ROCK, the only edited parts are the bad words bleeped, but when released under THE BAD BOYS OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, no bad words are bleeped, except for the f-word. In the other one, "Russell Simmonds Def Magic Show Jam", swear words are all bleeped out. But when released on the home video: THE BAD BOYS OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, all the bad words are intact, except for the f-word. But when the BAD BOYS program aired on TV, the edited version was played. See more
