If it feels like everyone on the internet is talking about "Tiger King," you're not wrong.

"Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness," Netflix's chronicle of the bizarre life and murder-for-hire trial of Joe Exotic - the flamboyant former Oklahoma roadside zoo operator, big-cat breeder and gubernatorial and presidential candidate - is currently the No. 1 offering in the U.S. from the streaming giant.

Netflix doesn't release viewership data, but according to Deadline, Netflix had just over 61 million U.S. subscribers at the end of 2019, out of a total of 167 million subscribers worldwide.

Considering the number of people who are currently staying home in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, it's safe to say that, indeed, millions of people have now gotten an eyeful of the colorful and controversial Oklahoma big cat owner, political hopeful and now convicted felon. (Warning: "Tiger King," along the trailer for it, includes strong language, sexual content, violence and animal endangerment and mistreatment.)
