Gilmore Girls!!

From the NYTimes, (by way of Something Old), comes this list of the (as of 2006) best-selling DVDs of TV Shows of all time.

The list is somewhat skewed by the fact that HBO DVD sets are so expensive, but it's still striking to me how little corollary there is between what TV shows get huge numbers on TV and what TV shows get huge numbers on DVD. Friends, 24, and Seinfeld are high-rated shows but The Simpsons and Family Guy are not, really. The biggest surprise to me, though, is that on a list that skews so male- and geek-centric, Gilmore Girls, of all things, placed ninth. Kind of shocking.

Until Whenever

It IS, kind of awesome, isn't it?

I do recall that it was the Family Guy's DVD sales that actually brought it back on the air. I don't know this, but I suspect a concerted (and successful) effort on the part of FG fans to bring it back.
