These numbers are sales estimates via The-Numbers.com and do not include Blu*Ray sales.
For the week ending September 27, 2009 the second week of release for the Grey’s Anatomy’s fifth-season DVD set again led all TV Show DVD sales for the week with an additional 84,080 units and $3.043 million in revenue. Grey‘s two week totalks are now 343,169 units and $12.52 million in revenue.
The first week of release for the third season of 30 Rock was next with 83,902 units and $2.64 million in sales.
The third week of release for The Office season five brought an additional 72,111 units and $2.38 million. The three week total is 660,659 units and $22.27 million.
Next up was the first week of release of season two, the final season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, with 64,966 units and $2.38 million in sales. That’s slightly down in units from the first week sales of season one, when it sold 71,279 units. Season one had far less revenue the first week of sales with $1.35 million, but it had a much lower unit cost because it only contained nine episodes.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season four sold another 63,358 units and $1.71 million in its second week on the charts. It now has sold 264,764 units with $6.77 million in revenue.
The second week of release for The Big Bang Theories second season sold another 57,939 units and $1.68 million for a two week total of 214,023 units and $6.2 million in sales.

The first season of The Mentalist sold 44,005 units in its first week for $1.63 million.
Fringe sold 37,817 more units for an additional $1.51 million in its third week. Its three week total is 200,897 units and $7.52 million in sales.
Mad Men clawed its way back on the list selling an additional 35,609 Units for $704,346 in revenue. Its eleven week totals are 295,810 units for $9.07 million.
For the first time in a long while, the first season of True Blood was not among the top 30 we see. But you can still track its totals on the annual top 50 list since its still the ninth best selling DVD this year (all DVDs, including movies) and since its release on May 19, 2009, it has sold over 1.6 million units for $55,670,381 in revenue. Its closest competitor for now among its TV show brethren is The Office season five (see above).
