The Super Bowl was a ratings dud! Plus, Andy Cohen welcomes his first child, and is Jennifer Lawrence engaged?? Find out in today's Dirty Laundry.


This year's ratings for the Super Bowl were the worst in ten years, down 5.3% from last year, with a 44.9 share. This game saw the lowest ratings since the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Arizona Cardinals a decade ago. On the good side, CBS took in $382 million. 

PETA held a protest outside CBS This Morning over Big Boi's fur coat. PETA wants him to donate to his Super Bowl coat to the homeless. 

Congratulations to Watch What Happens Live's Andy Cohen, who had his first child. He's 50 years old, and his son Benjamin Alan Cohen arrived yesterday via a surrogate. He named the baby after his late grandfather.

Is Jennifer Lawrence engaged? She's been dating an art dealer named Cooke Maroney for a few months now. He is the director of New York's Gladstone Gallery, and she's really into this guy. All her friends are saying he could be the one. Jennifer wants a big outdoor wedding, with a big house and a stable full of horses. She was recently seen with a huge ring on her finger... did he already pop the question?

Sunday night is the GRAMMYs, and Dolly Parton is going to get a tribute. She'll be honored by Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, and Little Big Town.
