“The Last Song,” about a rebellious girl who is sent to a Southern beach town for the summer to reconnect, through music, with her father, debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan DVD sales chart and the research house’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ending Aug. 22.

The Season 4 set of “Dexter” bowed at No. 2 on both sales charts. “Date Night,” which debuted at No. 1 on both sales charts the previous week, slipped to No. 3 on the DVD tally, and to No. 5 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, behind “Clash of the Titans” at No. 3 and “Kick-Ass” at No. 4.

None of the top titles sold particularly well on Blu-ray. Just 10% of total “Last Song” units sold were on the high-definition format, while for “Dexter” the percentage was 14% and for “Date Night,” the week-two percentage stood at 16%.

“Furry Vengeance,” a family comedy that earned $17.6 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 4 on both the DVD sales and rental charts. Just ahead of it on the rental chart was “Death at a Funeral” in its second week.
