Netflix's 'Tiger King' starring Joe Exotic enjoys the longest streak as No. 1 show on Top 10 titles list
Ever since its release on March 20, 2020, 'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness', the thrilling documentary series about former big cat zoo owner Joe Exotic, has wowed audiences across the country. So much so that on Monday, Netflix announced that the series was once again its most-watched show or movie in the US over the last 24 hours, which made it the top title on the streaming site for 15 straight days.
The seven-part series not only follows the eccentric Joe Exotic, but also other big cat owners like him, including his archnemesis Carole Baskin, an animal activist and owner of a big cat sanctuary.
'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness' holds the longest streak, enjoying its position on the top of Netflix's recently-launched top 10 overall shows and movies list. The streaming site counts one view if a user watches two minutes of a series or movie, calculating its daily lists, updating each morning to reflect the last 24 hours.
'The Trials of Gabriel Fernande' holds the second-longest streak at six days straight as most-watched show or movie on the streaming site, followed by 'Love is Blind' and 'Spenser Confidential' — both on the top spot for five days straight.
It is hardly surprising that 'Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness' should wear this crown for 15 straight days. Through seven episodes, audiences follow the high stakes drama of the rivalry between Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic, who is now serving 22 years in prison for a murder-for-hire plot against her.
In addition to that, with people locked inside their homes in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, 'Tiger King' offers the much-needed respite from the terrors of the real world.
But the series might be far from over as Jeff Lowe, one of the stars of the series, announced that Netflix is planning to release a new episode of the show this week. "Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They're filming here tomorrow," Lowe had said in the video. "Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on," he said warning audiences of the pandemic.
Netflix, however, is yet to confirm the new episode. The series is currently streaming on Netflix.
