Date Night Tops Home Video Charts
The Steve Carell-Tina Fey-Mark Wahlberg comedy Date Night grabbed the No. 1 spot on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert DVD and Blu-ray sales charts and Home Media magazine's rental chart for last week. Another comedy, Death at a Funeral, came in at No. 2. But appearing to reflect consumers' lack of interest in paying premium prices to watch comedies in the Blu-ray high-definition format, Home Media reported that Blu-ray sales of Date Night , which was released by 20th Century Fox Home Video, accounted for just 20 percent of the total, while they accounted for only 15 percent of sales for Sony's Death at a Funeral.
