Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” is pretty popular. So much so that over 34 million viewers tuned in to the docuseries within 10 days of its release, according to Nielsen.

Variety reported the true crime docuseries had 34.3 million unique viewers in the United States from March 20-29, making it one of Netflix’s most popular series in recent memory. “Tiger King,” which centers on notorious zookeeper and 2016 presidential candidate Joe Exotic and other big cat conservationists, topped “Stranger Things” Season 2’s first 10 days viewership record and came close to beating last year’s enormously popular “Stranger Things” Season 3, which Nielsen said drew 36.3 million users in that same period of time.
