New York City– “Saturday Night Live” begins its brand-new season with Ryan Gosling as host, Jay-Z as the musical visitor– and quite likely some jokes at the expense of the White House.
The sketch funny show starts up once again Saturday and is hoping to construct off among its most-watched seasons in more than 20 years thanks to Alec Baldwin’s turn as President Donald Trump and Melissa McCarthy’s appearances as former White Home press secretary Sean Spicer. Both actors just recently won Emmys for their work, as did Kate McKinnon, who played Hillary Clinton on the show.
The 90-minute show is now entering its 43rd season. It has grown so popular that it spun off the half-hour “Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Summer season Edition” while the main show was on break.
