Fans still bleeding their wallets:True Blood tops weekly DVD sales

From TV by the Numbers

The amazing story of success for the first season of True Blood on DVD continues. For the week ending August 16, 2009, True Blood was the top selling TV show DVD. It was a slow week without many new releases, but still, True Blood raked in an additional $1.59 million and is approaching $46 million in sales.

On a revenue basis True Blood is the 11th best selling DVD of the season. The only other TV show in the top 50 is 24, which is now #50 (and falling, and the list we see ends at 50, so…) with $18.184 million in sales.

On a unit basis, Conchords was the week’s best selling TV show DVD, but it costs less than the other DVDs. Conchords is currently $19.49 on Amazon, True Blood has a list price of $60, though Amazon is selling it for $34.99 and Mad Men lists at $50 and is going for $32.99 on Amazon.
