A peek inside Cowboys Stadium getting ready for the game

There is a lot of yellow paint being sprayed on the field at Cowboys Stadium.

On Thursday, NFL officials let local media in to take a peek at the work going on inside the stadium as the building prepares for the Super Bowl.

The end zones shout "Steelers" and "Packers" and the NFL logo has replaced the Cowboys star at midfield.

Thousands of temporary seats are already in place and crews are wiring up the scoreboard and Hall of Fame level with hundreds of spotlights and concert lights for the halftime show.

Cowboys spent a half-million on TVs last month

No one can accuse Cowboys owner Jerry Jones of failing to pony up at the new stadium partially built by residents of Arlington.

Our Susan Schrock reports that the Cowboys spent nearly a half-million dollars on televisions alone last month.

Work on the new stadium is expected to be completed by early next year, and the price tag is not expected to exceed the planned $1.2 billion.
