Mark Your Calendar: 'Anchorman' On ABC April 10th

In the 7th season of ABC's Saturday Movie of the Week, the station saw ratings drop below 2.5 million for the first time in history. Surprisingly, this happened while airing a Harry Potter movie.

Now, according to Cinema Blend, ABC has announced they will air Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy on April 10, 2010. Last time it aired on ABC was January 21, 2009 and it garnered a measly 2.86 million viewers.

But forget the stats, Anchorman is awesome. For those of you wondering what I'm even talking about: the film centers around Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), San Diego's cocky, misogynist news anchor in the 1970s, who has quite the run-in with his new female co-anchor, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate). Ron's friends and fellow newsmen round out the story, including the inept Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell), the confused Champ Kind (David Koechner), and the Sex Panther-wearing Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd).

I have yet to see Anchorman on broadcast television, so I'm interested to see how edited-down it is. I doubt it would matter - as long as we still get Brick's trident throw. And now, The Best of Brick Tamland:

Remind me to organize a pants party and order three fingers of Glenlivet, with a little bit of pepper, and some cheese before 8:00 pm EST on April 10th, when Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy stumbles its wonderful, drunken self onto ABC.
