The actor stayed in character, although his fellow broadcasters broke into laughter at some points in the newscast. Ferrell even told co-anchor Amber Schatz she looked "lovely" and asked if she was married in true Ron Burgundy fashion.

"Well I am, so don't get any ideas," he responded when Schatz said she wasn't married.

The actor missed the cue for Burgundy's famous sign-off at the end of the newscast, however. When prodded by Schatz to deliver the quip before the credits rolled, Ferrell said "Oh? Am I supposed to read that?"

Stay classy, North Dakota.
