BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Television viewers in Bismarck, N.D., were treated to some real class this weekend when none other than the great Ron Burgundy read them the news.

Actor and comedian Will Ferrell reprised his “Anchorman” role for KXMB’s Saturday night news broadcast. The former “Saturday Night Live” star is promoting its upcoming sequel, “Anchorman 2.”

Ferrell read stories while engaging in some witty banter with the news team. He also clowned around, popping into anchor Amber Schatz’s screen while she read a story and noting after the sports segment, “I’ve never seen fighting in a hockey match before. That was fascinating.”

The team expected Ferrell to end with his “Stay classy” catchphrase, but he missed the cue, saying: “What? Am I supposed to read that?”
