During one of the Stephen Colbert episodes, Let's Make A Date was played, Wayne was the contestant and Stephan was a "Overly Dramatic Shakespeare Actor", Colin was "Finding The Other Contestants Irresistible" and Ryan was "Dustin Hoffman's Rain Man". The exact episode this was cut from is unknown, the first episode with Colbert aired February 24, 1999 and the second aired March 22, 2006. The reason while it was cut is believed to be Ryan's Rain Man impression was to insensitive. The game ended up on the Uncensored Season One DVD that was released in 2007.
During the Season Two Episode 23 game Hats, the performers take turns donning hats, masks or random head gear and enact the example of the "world's worst dating service video". Ryan donned a shark on his head and said "Well looks like someone likes head". This was cut from the episode due to the phrase referencing a blowjob, however the moment aired as part of the show's "Best Of" episode on October 4, 2000.

According to Youtuber 12Medbe Network, during the "Ryan's Wife" Hoedown from the Sixteenth Episode of Season Five, a verse was edited out of the broadcast of the episode. Colin's aired verse is "Oh Ryan Stiles, I'd Love To Be His Wife, He's The Best Lover The I Ever Had In My Life, After We Made Love, Boy I'm High-Steppin', Mel Gibson Isn't The Only One With A Lethal Weapon". The verse Colin said that was cut was that how nothing on Ryan was wider than Wayne's G-String, a reference to the fact Wayne Brady was wearing a G-String in the episode. Season Five was never released on DVD (censored or uncensored). The season and episode is available on CW Seed but the G-String verse has not surfaced.
One episode from the first season was supposed to air March 3, 1999 but was preempted by the Barbra Walters interview with Monica Lewinski. The episode featured Brad Sherwood, Patrick Bristow, Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles, the games in this episode were never disclosed and the only two episodes with this cast that aired both aired as part of the new episodes that aired on ABC Family in 2005 and 2006). Since two episodes are filmed with the same cast and same audience, it was never officially confirmed if this episode exists or if this episode was one of the two episodes that aired on ABC Family.
