No one seems to have pointed out how all three specials and the making of were shown on one night. Everyone I know waited for Monday to roll around and most of them recorded it. Seeing a dip between night 1 and 2 etc. is made all the more complicated in this instance by the fact that you could see essentially the exact same content only a few days later. Like I said, most of my firends knew the show was going to be on Monday but I think there is a real possibility that some people watched on Friday and when they found out it would be out in all three parts on Monday simply waited until Monday. I think we all agree the show works a lot better linked together. Just an observation. The only small point I want to make is that I think DVD pre-orders are actually very important in this day and age. Here are some of the reeasons: 1. The content is often available free and somewhat legal online (dave ja vu etc) as well as through friends who record it. If you vote with your money for somethign that you can more or less get for free (legally or not) that is a strong indication of people feeling they are getting value for their money. Particularly in this economy voting with your wallet makes a profound statement. 2. Pre orders are abotu the only kind of sale that is reliably trackable. With eBay and used DVDs being easily sold thorugh a myriad of channels, once a product (DVD) has sold its first rounsd it is hard to keep track the overall impact. I would be interested to know if GNP has kept track of how often the older DVDs have been sold by second and thrid tier retailers 3. There was a very good third reason but it came in my head sat there for a while and went clean out again.
