When he was finally awarded the prize, a bronze bust of Twain, Ferrell promptly dropped it on stage and tried to pick up the pieces. He joked that he had turned the prize down 13 times before but decided to accept this time because of the prize money (there’s not any) and to be watched on PBS “by hundreds of people across this country.”
The show will broadcast Monday, Oct. 31 at 9 PM EST on PBS.
