With no major new releases in the final days of 2012, "Ted" stayed on top of the DVD sales chart for the third week in a row.

Meanwhile, "The Dark Knight Rises," which had been on sale for three weeks but had not been available from Redbox kiosks or Netflix, debuted on the rental chart at No. 1.

Both movies have proved very popular in the home entertainment market, outpacing such other recent releases as "Total Recall," "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "The Bourne Legacy."
