Family Guy - Volume 7 debuts on the top of the TV Show DVD sales chart with nearly 274,000 units sold in its first week, translating into sales of over $7.5 million.
Very strong TV show DVD seller True Blood: The Complete First Season saw its weekly unit sales drift down 21% to a still impressive 107,000 units, topping the 1 million unit mark after 5 weeks in release. It's the only TV show in the top 50 DVDs sold for 2009.
USA ratings stalwart Burn Notice - Season Two rang in its first week with sales of almost 91,000 units and $3 million.
Three shows on the DvD sales list last week fell off Weeds - Season Four (after 2 weeks), The Shield - The Complete Seventh Season (after one week) and Prison Break (after 2 weeks).
Two other TV shows that began selling DVDs this week that didn't appear on the top 30 list were Everwood - The Complete Second Season, and Saving Grace - Season Two. All we know is they sold fewer than 72,800 units for the week.
Two TV shows will begin selling DVDs next week: The Girls Next Door - Season Five, and Reba - The Complete Sixth Season. I wouldn't be surprised if neither make the top 30 and we don't see any numbers for them.
