It’s truly incredible how big “Tiger King” has become over the past couple weeks. Netflix has produced a ton of hits, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything blow up like this before. According to Forbes, 34 million people watched the documentary in the first 10 days of it being released, which is a staggering amount.
Of course, it probably helps that people are stuck at home with nowhere to go thanks to coronavirus. That means there’s a lot more streaming and it’s impossible to turn off “Tiger King” once you get a taste of the feud between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin.
Now, fans around the globe are getting one more episode, and I can’t wait. You know something is incredibly successful when Netflix decides to shoot a follow-up episode.
For those of you who have seen “Tiger King,” let us know in the comments what you thought. For those of you who haven’t, I suggest you start watching ASAP. It’s one of the wildest things you’ll ever see.
