The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Ryan Gosling

Welcome to season 43 of Saturday Night Live! We keep our recaps short and sweet so you can get busy watching the videos we post weekly. SNL has added some new blood to its cast and writing team, including featured players Heidi Gardner (Adult Swim), comedian Luke Null, and Chris Redd (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping). Alec Baldwin continues his role as Trump. Bobby Moynihan, Vanessa Bayer, and Sasheer Zamata did not return to the series. And the show is being broadcast live in all four time zones within the contiguous United States. Kicking off the new season is Ryan Gosling and musical guest Jay-Z. The La La Land actor can’t keep a straight face per usual, but he pulls it off with lots of charm and enthusiasm. See how it all went down last night, below.
