I'm not exactly sure how high it is, but I get the impression the number of shows that actually turn a profit through DVD sales alone is pretty low. I'm not sure if this is because companies rely on increased sales of source material and merchandise to cover some of the costs or if we just went through a market bubble a few years back - I haven't done any exact calculations, but it seems to me like average units per volume this year is significantly higher then a year or two back, but revenue for the industry as a whole is lower and fewer shows are being made. Perhaps it's a combination of the two factors.
