Red-Hot Seven Episode Docuseries Remains the Must See Show During This Quarantine

Nielsen is reporting 34.3 million unique viewers in its first 10 days streaming on Netflix, which is above former leader “Stranger Things 2” in the same time frame. The Netflix docuseries, which has created quite a stir on social media, follows the bizarre life of former tiger zoo owner Joe Exotic, Carole Baskin and other big cat owners in the country.

More specifically, “Tiger King” scored an average-minute audience of 18.99 million U.S. viewers in the first 10 days after its March 20 launch, besting the 17.5 million put up by “Stranger Things 2” (Oct. 27, 2017) and nearly matching the 20.5 million earned by “Stranger Things 3” (July 4, 2019) in their same post-premiere time frames.

Earlier this week, Investigation Discovery (ID) announced “Investigating the Strange World of Joe Exotic,” which is a continuation of the seven episode Netflix entry “Tiger King.” The series will delve further into the story of Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic, among others involved in the tiger community.
