Ryan Gosling couldn't control his laughter during these SNL skits last night

Ryan Gosling couldn't control his laughter during these SNL skits last night

Because Gosling, 36, saved jazz.

Overall, the entire episode felt like the team is determined to repeat a successful formula found in Season 42. There was no coming back from that, apparently. In his second stint as host this weekend, Gosling kept cracking up - a giddy style that bolstered the better sketches and enlivened the weaker ones. Maybe you're obsessed with people calling Mad Max: Fury Road steampunk when it's really dieselpunk.

On a lighter subject, Ryan Gosling laughed and laughed and laughed his way through this season premiere, which wound up being a pretty charming sight as the cast tried to keep him on track.

Season 42 of SNL averaged 10.880 million viewers in Live+7, making it the show's most-watched season in 23 years, and a 3.48 adults 18-49 L+7 rating, the highest in seven years. "You want to go smoke a Virginia Slim until your hand stops moving?"

In one sketch with Kate McKinnon and Cecily Strong, Ryan and the ladies shared their alien abduction stories.

Are you excited to see these two back onstage together?

"I was like, 'Hey, last guy who did that got double-barrel pink eye, '" she says. Gosling may be a former Mouseketeer-turned-huge Hollywood superstar but Kate McKinnon's power is not to be underestimated. What was an impression of a buffoon who wasn't going to win is now something much more urgent and frightening as people are fighting for their lives in Puerto Rico as the president mocks them from his golf course.

Finally, "SNL" cast member Kenan Thompson had had enough.

Gosling was also featured in a sketch so freakish we're not even sure we know what the hell we watched, but it's gotta be in our top five clips to watch this week. Basically Ryan Gosling's a rock flute player with a love triangle.

That was when Gosling "broke down" the real, deep meaning of the musical genre by sitting down at the piano and giving him the funniest most basic explanation of the otherwise complex art form.

It's Saturday night, you're on the couch with friends and family watching TV and suddenly a rather orange-shaded Alec Baldwin appears on the screen dressed in a baggy, navy blue suit jacket that he has unknowingly paired with black slacks.
