    Just to comment the final sketch was a repeat of a Martin freeman sketch where kenan kept repeating “my red boots” -good jeans

    • Mike Bloom

      THAT’S where I remember it from. Thanks for the clarification!

  • Mike Hasher

    Also about mikes cameo prediction Ben affect is saying to be dating a snl. Producer also what do you say about Collin dating another five timer Scarlett johanson

  • Mike Hasher
  • Matthew Murphy

    This was rough. Kate MacKinnon talking about her V and A for the second sketch of the night was brutal. And as far as Gosling goes, I’ll smoke what he’s smoking as he seems to find the writing funnier than anyone I know.

    • yup, a bit Jimmy Fallon/Horatio Sanz for me, but I’d rather a host have too much fun than take it too seriously.

      • Matthew Murphy

        Agreed. Gosling was great In the pre taped sketches. Loved the Papyrus and Woke Jeans bits.

    So excited we’ll be getting these after each episode again! Definitely one of the better premieres in recent seasons, and I too though Papyrus was the top sketch of the night.

  • Suzi!

    I agree about the Trump sketch. I thought it was a rerun and didn’t even pay attention till halfway through the show.

  • Suzi!

    Glad to hear they’re still doing the show @ 8:30 on the west coast. Didn’t even know that or that the new season had started!
