TV viewers in Bismarck, N.D., were treated to some real class this weekend when 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 "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," a sequel to the 2004 film about a fictional news team's sexist reaction to the arrival of an ambitious female reporter.

Dressed in his signature rust-colored three-piece suit and a striped tie, Ferrell read stories off the teleprompter and engaged in witty banter with anchor Amber Schatz.

He also clowned around, popping into Schatz's screen while she read a story and telling her after a commercial break, "Amber, you look lovely tonight" before asking her whether she was married.

When Schatz told him she wasn't married, Ferrell replied, "Well I am, so don't get any ideas."

On Sunday, Ferrell-as-Burgundy helped open the Canadian Curling trials in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
