'Ted' beats 'Magic Mike' at weekend box office

I missed a lot of the "Magic Mike" buzz and didn't even know what it was until I read the review in Friday's TGIF. It sounds OK, but I think I'd rather spend my box office money on "Ted" — and apparently so would this weekend's movie-goers.

From The Associated Press:
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Where available, latest international numbers are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
