DVD Sales: Star Trek On Top Last Week; Some Old Chart Corrections, This Week’s Chart?

December 8, 2009

Alright, there’s quite a bit to go over this week in DVD Sales.  First off, I spoke with Bruce Nash of The-Numbers, who is an amazing analyst that works hard to put together the DVD Sales Chart each week.  I use his figures, and I never want anyone to forget about the hard work that he does.  I spoke to him because of a discrepancy in the DVD Sales Chart for the week that ended November 15th, when Up topped the charts.  He told me that there was an error in The Numbers’ calculations, and the chart was re-posted with different numbers that had originally been reported.  I’ve posted the revised Nov. 15th chart at the bottom of this post.  Also, the holidays caused a major delay with last week’s chart, for the week ending November 22nd, when Star Trek was the top seller.  Thus, we’re still a week behind, and while I’m trying to sort out all the confusion, I’m going to have to skip my DVD Sales Notes and just give you the two charts.  Obviously, this invalidates last week’s Blu-Ray Sales Chart as well, so I’ll maybe modify that, or maybe restart from scratch.  I’ll keep you posted on this week’s chart, but check out the two accurate ones below:
