Emerson to Rename Journalism School After Anchorman Ron Burgundy

news_burgundy_group_large

Well, it’s only for one day on December 4th, and it’s really just a stunt to publicize a screening of the sequel with one Will Ferrell in attendance (presumably in character) before the movie opens on December 20th.

We might argue that Ron Burgundy is a journalist like Greg Kelly is a journalist, which is to say not at all. But hey, this move worked, didn’t it? Check out all the media mentions.

The big questions: did you realize that the original Anchorman came out almost ten years ago? And does Paul Rudd win Movember or what?

Hey ABC: Why Michael Strahan?

We’ve been perplexed by this story for a whole week, so now we feel compelled to ask the inevitable question: Why Michael Strahan? ABC won’t confirm the change, but the rest of the world seems to think that the former New York Giants defensive end and current on-air pigskin analyst will soon become Kelly Ripa‘s new counterpart on “Live.”

We’re experiencing some mixed emotions here: Relief that it wasn’t Seacrest yet again tinged with a little sadness on behalf of Pat Kiernan and a secret hope that the job might still go to Greg Kelly of “Good Day New York,” also known as the Unlikely Voice of Reason.

But really, why Michael Strahan?
