The third season of Paramount’s “Yellowstone” jumped back into the top spot on the weekly “Watched at Home” chart the week ended Dec. 12, boosted by its Dec. 8 release on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The season previously topped the chart in June following its premiere on the Paramount Network.
The latest season of the popular series, which stars Kevin Costner as a man in charge of the largest ranch in America, helped raised interest in the previous two seasons as well, as all three dominated the Watched at Home chart during the summer.
The chart, presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, tracks transactional video activity (both digital and on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental) compiled from studio and retailer data.
For the week, season one was No. 4, and season two was No. 14; a week earlier they were No. 14 and No. 17, respectively. Season three, the week before its disc release, was No. 16.
Paramount Home Entertainment Dec. 17 reported it has sold more than 1 million combined copies of the three seasons of “Yellowstone” on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Yellowstone: Season 3 was also No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales its first week on shelves.
The remainder of the Watched at Home chart was populated mostly by holiday catalog titles getting a boost in the lead-up to Christmas.
No. 2 was Universal’s animated The Grinch, No. 3 was Warner’s Elf, and rounding out the top five was National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
The previous week’s most-watched title, Warner’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy, dropped to No. 7.
