Z & Ryan Gosling Are 'Together Again at Last' in 'SNL' Promos

Jay Z at 2017 The Meadows Festival

It's kind of fantastic that they can even edit down prerecorded sketches at the last second for time, but that's what happened here as the version we will never see delayed the "reveal" even longer, giving more time to Gosling's paranoia.

Saturday Night Live returned for its 43rd season last night, and the show's premiere didn't disappoint. It's one of several recurring McKinnon characters who exist nearly entirely to make the host lose it. Nice work if you can get it! Set free with high honors.

Ryan Gosling has hosted the comedy show before, back in 2015.

The actor is then seen at the "SNL" security desk, where the guards are refusing to let him enter due to his lack of a visitor's pass.

Gosling won't just be taking the stage to provide us with some much-needed laughs. When they are fooled into eating food from Pizza Hut, things go badly.

Trump was a major promoter of the show last season, even if it was unintentional. At least Mike Huckabee can't tweet that SNL was being sexist to his daughter.

Actually, saving jazz wasn't on Baldwin-as-Trump's agenda this week. Maybe there's a different high profile actor with Saturday evenings free and an appetite for an easy Emmy?

The return of Saturday Night Live this weekend was full of momentous moments. My slacks got snagged on a branch, so they're gone, and I'm hauled on board with my bush and my tush hanging out.

In a promo for tonight's 90-minute season premiere host Ryan Gosling delivers a dramatic voiceover reminiscent of Drive as the cityscape of NY scrolls by.

In the sketch, Baldwin's Trump was unclear that Puerto Rico was an American territory, hung up on the mayor of San Juan, put Sessions playfully on his lap and admitted he liked football.

Meanwhile, North Shore native Alex Moffat commenced his sophomore season on the show by reprising his Weekend Update character known as the Guy Who Just Bought a Boat, an insufferable preppy joined this week by Gosling as his equally insufferable cousin.

Even while attempting to promote his new movie, "Blade Runner 2049", it was hard for Gosling to avoid referencing another recent project - the one in which he saved jazz.

Alongside host Gosling and castmate Cecily Strong, the two-time Emmy victor revisited wacky character Ms. Or at least they were visible. It's an important milestone to see this cast have an ensemble sketch that involves almost every cast member, especially on the heels of seeing Mikey Day slide into Bobby Moynihan's old slot on the alien abduction sketch. Was Luke Null in the episode at all?

On a practical level, this sketch should get lots of play online in the upcoming week since it both appeals to and is a parody of the types of demographics many websites are trying to attract. Also appearing somewhere between "Never" and "Barely" were Leslie Jones, Pete Davidson, Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney.

"Saturday Night Live" Season 43 debuts September 30 at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.

"SNL" is coming off one of its best-rated and critically lauded seasons ever.
