Pete Davidson hosted the season premiere of Saturday Night Live and opened with a poignant message about Israel-Hamas war. It was tearful, touching, and extremely well-said. Pete changed directions with his monologue talking about incest in Game of Thrones and settled the audience in for an actually funny night, including a personal favorite sketch of Pete singing a song to the tune of Barbie’s “I’m Just Ken” that’s been stuck in my head for the last 24 hours.

Some people are finding Timmy as Willy to be an ick, but I’m with the other half who think it’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen? And you can bet all the golden tickets in the world that  Kylie Jenner is on my side here.
