ENTERTAINMENT DIGEST



Published: Wed, January 23, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

Super Bowl Sunday is less than two weeks away, and the anticipation is building — to see the clever commercials that will debut in this most prime of prime-time television. Here is a list of the top five commercials (as ranked by superbowl-ads.com) that debuted at last year’s Super Bowl, along with a brief description:

v M&Ms: A female M&M that is brown in color has the men thinking she showed up naked. And then a male M&M walks in and says “Oh, it’s that kind of a party,” strips off his candy shell revealing his chocolate center and begins dancing to the song “I’m Sexy and I Know It.”

v Bud Light: A scruffy rescue dog name Wego amazes people at a party. Every time someone calls him by saying, “Here, Wego” (which is the Bud Light catchphrase), the dog fetches them a Bud Light.

v Kia Optima: Mr. Sandman trips and spreads a little too much dream powder on a sleeping man. As a result he has a supercharged dream that features, among other things, Motley Crue performing, girls in bikinis and him riding a bucking rhinoceros.

v Doritos: A bratty big brother teases his baby brother with his bag of Doritos from his perch in a backyard treehouse. Grandma slingshots the baby at him, and the baby snatches the bag.

v Chevy Silverado: After the Mayan apocalypse, the only three survivors start up their Silverados and drive through a wasted landscape.

“csi” (10 p.m., cbs): Former tennis greats Chris Evert and Lindsay Davenport guest-star as themselves on an episode of “CSI” in which a professional tennis player is found dead inside a ball-firing machine.

“necessary roughness” (10 p.m., usa): In the midseason premiere of “Necessary Roughness,” Dr. Dani (Callie Thorne) finds that it’s necessary to become a patient in order to get her career back on track.

“Nashville” (9 p.m., ABC): Whenever we hear the word “hit” in the same sentence as the names Rayna and Juliette, we think of a cat fight rather than a chart-topper.
