Peyton's new place: Manning tossing one-liners in TV ads

Peyton Manning is everywhere.

Except on football fields.

Recently cleared by the NFL of any wrongdoing in an HGH investigation, Manning is back at his second-best pastime - comedy - with three new commercials for DirecTV titled ''Peyton on Sunday Mornings.''

In one, he sits on a park bench in his bathrobe talking with an elderly man who advises him ''to work as long as you can.'' All the while, Lionel Richie is serenading them.

Richie's singing is in the background in another ad. Manning, at home in a bathrobe, calls younger brother Eli, inviting him to come over and watch all the games. Eli informs Peyton of other plans: ''I'm playing.''

In the other spot, Peyton, again in bathrobe, is doing some food shopping, handing the cashier crumpled coupons. He is checking out at Aisle 18, of course.
