Apparently Ferrell did well reading the news as prompted without getting out of character. He did crack a few jokes according to NY Daily News. The same can’t be said for his fellow news casters, who reportedly cracked up a few times.
"The second he said, 'Good evening, I'm Ron Burgundy,' I lost it," Amber Schatz, Ferrell's co-anchor for the night, told The Associated Press Sunday. "It was really hard not to laugh."
