As SNL brings its summer Weekend Update to a close, we have our first official Season 43 host. Hide your replicants, as Blade Runner 2049 star and returning guest Ryan Gosling will host the late September premiere, joined by an iconic New York musical guest.

Drunk Uncle has officially sobered up, at least for the time being. CBS’ official pickup of SNL star Bobby Moynihan’s new generational sitcom Me, Myself & I will indeed cement his exit from the NBC sketch comedy series after Season 42’s finale this week.
Louis C.K.’s SNL return went smoothly enough, until Tig Notaro fans noticed some striking similarities between a prerecorded “Birthday Clown” sketch, and Notaro’s own “Clown Service” short.
