While it’s not a comprehensive list, the weekly DVD sales charts from provide snapshots of which TV show DVDs are hot sellers and an idea of their numbers, typically during their release week and soon afterwards.

Our first look at the list finds HBO’s True Blood leading TV shows with a huge first week of over $17 million in sales for the week ending May 24, 2009, and at #4 overall among all DVD sales. Three other TV shows identified, at least somewhat, with cult followings, 24, WWE:Wrestlemania XXV and Friday Night Lights are also in the top 30 DVD sellers for the week.
