    Anchorman was funny, but Anchorman 2 sucked, so this has a 50% chance of being good.

    The podcast world is about to get classier. Will Ferrell is reviving his legendary Anchorman character Ron Burgundy with a new podcast appropriately titled The Ron Burgundy Podcast.

    The podcast is set to launch on the iHeartRadio Podcast Network and will be available for your listening pleasure in early 2019. It will be co-produced by Funny or Die and iHeartRadio. The show has been given a two-season 12-episode order.

    One of Ferrell's most annoying characters...I know, I know, he plays the same guy in every movie. Personally never found anchorman funny. I do like lot of Ferrell's movies.

    what is it about comedians that overstay their welcome. Adam Sandler,same shit for years now. Mike Myers,will Ferrell. At some point funny but then you notice you've heard and seen it all from them. And the years will pass by.

    Taking a page out of Howard’s book - burn the joke to the ground, then keep using it.

    I really don't get the point of a highly scripted podcast, the fun of podcasts is that they're small and if you want to you can interact with them via email or voicemail.

    First half of Anchorman was pretty funny right up to the fight scene

    Funny is small doses... like jay and silent bob.. Don't think it will work for an entire show.

    It can't be worse than that that crap character that Jim Norton does.. Chip Chipperson.

    Agreed. I was in college when it released and it felt like one of those movies that everyone in my generation was supposed to laugh at while stoned. I never smoked pot so maybe thats why I didn't get it.

    I'm a little surprised Ferrell hasn't inflicted an "Elf" sequel on us yet. His career trajectory has seemed to be heading in that direction for a few years now.
