“Lost” may not have received a lot of Emmy love, but video watchers wanted to take a trip back to the island last week. The DVD set of the castaway drama’s sixth and final season topped the sales charts, according to Rentrak.

On the rental end, the TIna Fey and Steve Carell comedy “Date Night” held on to the top spot for the third straight week. The week’s big release, Jennifer Lopez’s pregnancy comedy “The Back-Up Plan” couldn’t top “Lost” and “Date Night,” instead having to settle for second place on both the rental and sales charts.

In its second week of release, Miley Cyrus’ bid for grown-up respectability “The Last Song,” slipped from first place on the sales chart to third. The critically vivisected tween romance fell one spot on the rental chart to claim fourth place.

‘Lost” wasn’t the only television series to make its presence felt on the sales chart. Just in time to stoke anticipation for the fall launch of several hit shows, DVD collections of the fourth season of “Dexter” and the seventh season of “NCIS” were the fourth and fifth bestselling discs.

Next week brings the release of Michael Caine’s vigilante thriller “Harry Brown,” talking dog comedy “Marmaduke,” and Tyler Perry’s relationship drama “Why Did I Get Married Too?”
