The NHL: Stanley Cup 2008-2009 Champions: Pittsburgh Penguins opened at the #2 position for TV show DVD unit sales. I'm confident it was the #1 seller across western Pennsylvania. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts on our list.

In its second week, Entourage - The Complete Fifth Season was still the #1 DVD unit seller among TV shows, but its numbers fell 58% from its first week. It may not be on the list we see much longer.

This year's reigning TV show DVD leader, True Blood: The Complete First Season, saw its unit sales drop just 11% to just under 45,000 for the week, and has sold over 1.1 million units in its 8 weeks on the market.

Weeds - Season Four popped back onto the list for the third time. It's sold nearly 380,000 units, and has been on our list 4 weeks out of the 6 its been on sale. Family Guy - Volume 7 has sold 366,000 in 4 weeks and soon may be popping on and off the list like Weeds. Stargate Atlantis - The Complete Fifth Season unit sales dropped almost 68% in its second week. This is likely its last week on our chart.

Eastbound & Down: The Complete First Season dropped off the list after only one week. Next week DVD sales begin for ER - The Complete Eleventh Season.
