Ryan Gosling returns to host 'SNL' season 43 premiere

Are the Saturday Night Live ratings still strong in the age of Donald Trump inundation? But the weekly sketch comedy series' greatest gift is its ability to occasionally leave guest hosts - and sometimes even cast members - in stitches.

Ryan Gosling returned to Studio 8H ahead of Blade Runner 2049's release, but did more to promote his role in La La Land, a movie that came out almost a year ago.

The Grammy award-winner, looking less than amused, deadpans, "I remember", to which Gosling happily asks, "You do?" before they both burst into laughter. Then, a wide smile. So it was amusing to watch him lean into that and just try to own the joke - especially with his know-it-all and wrong pronunciations of New Orleans and "NYC City", which gave Gosling his first laugh of the night. He tackled his hosting duties with glee, committing to how he saved jazz in La La Land during the monologue (there was an assist from his co-star Emma Stone) and showing the darkness of an HGTV reality star.

Did you think that Alec Baldwin as Trump was done forever?

I also laughed at/with Michael Che's increasing anger about Trump's reaction to Puerto Rican hurricane relief and National Football League players kneeling.

"I haven't felt this excited since I saved jazz", Gosling deadpanned at the top of the monologue. "It's hurricane relief. You just did this very same thing for white people, twice".

Basically the joke of tonight's cold open was that Jeff Sessions is small and Baldwin likes doing the Trump "puckered anus mouth".

What were your thoughts of SNL's season 43 premiere episode with Ryan Gosling and Jay-Z?

Bonus: an earlier airtime means West Coasters can watch the show and still have a good chunk of Saturday night to enjoy.

"This time, I'm going to give the world my soul", he says. He still is an wonderful musician and it is one thing you don't want to miss. Probably Moffat and Mikey Day set an unreasonably high standard for new cast involvement through last season and Gardner and Redd had a more typical debut.
