Will Ferrell Appears on 6 Late-Night Shows as Ron Burgundy

It was a first in late-night television.

The original “Anchorman” Ron Burgundy made a rare appearance on, not one, but six late-night television programs.

Will Farrell took up his fictional alter ego Thursday night, taking over the stage at “Conan,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” “The Late Late Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” all in one night.

On one show, the fictional San Diego anchor performed stand-up ventriloquism with a bearded dummy.

On another, Burgundy poked fun at current events, joking that “the biggest story of 2019 is the Bueller Report. The Ferris Bueller report.”

The late night takeover was meant to promote the new season of Ferrell’s podcast, “The Ron Burgundy Podcast.”
