Quite a week, lots of new shows released on DVD in the newest list. Mad Men, which led all TV shows for the week ending July 19, was pushed off the charts we see (top 30) by the week ending July 26. Perhaps it will make a comeback next week.
Phenomenal seller True Blood marks its first week off the chart since it was released, though we can see that it sold around an additional 12,000 units. A very impressive run that’s pushing $41 million in revenue.
Psych – The Complete Third Season and Monk – Season Seven led all TV show DVD sales for the week ending July 26, followed by Pushing Daisies: The Complete Second Season (per RJ in the comments, Pushing Daisies 52,514 units for season two was up from the first week sales of PD: Season 2 is up from the 45,769 Season 1 in its first week), but with the kind of numbers that make it seem unlikely they will be hanging around on the list for long. Mad Men sold over 94,000 units the previous week — more than any show on the list this week — and now its off the list. Also on this week’s list were Prison Break – The Final Break, SpongeBob Squarepants and Robot Chicken — Star Wars Episode II.
Like True Blood Weeds, Entourage, Stargate Atlantis and 24 also fell off the list.
Next week, it’s the apocalypse! We’ll see the results for the week ending August 2, which will include…Dollhouse!
Coincidentally, to celebrate their return to TV this Friday, we are having contests that include giving away this week’s top TV show DVD sellers, Monk and Psych.
