9.30PM, TDT ★★★★
Will Ferrell ( Elf, Old School) is superbly cast as Ron Burgundy, an egocentric legend of TV’s nightly news who could only have existed in the 1970s. A stridently silly comedy that regularly goes off - topic for some brilliantly bonkers sequences including a hilarious street fi ght between rival newsreaders, and Ron’s Hendrix- inspired fl ute solo during a late- night jam session. Keeps a winning brand of anarchic absurdity to the fore throughout. Great, grating fun.
