‘Saturday Night Live’ ends its season on a high note with Dwayne Johnson

Saturday Night Live ended this rollercoaster of a season in the capable hands of the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as host, welcoming him into the increasingly less exclusive Five-Timers club, and saying goodbye to two long-standing cast members, Bobby Moynihan and Vanessa Bayer.

So I don’t really have much to say about Hanks as a host other than, you know, he’s good? You don’t get invited back 8 times if you’re not good?
