image for 'Tiger King' Easily Holds Longest Streak as Number One Show on Netflix

The seven-part series, covering the bizarre life of former tiger zoo owner Joe Exotic and several other owners like him in the U.S., easily holds the longest streak atop Netflix’s recently-launched top 10 overall shows and movies list.

“The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez” holds the second-longest streak at 6 straight days as Netflix’s most watched show or movie, followed by “Love Is Blind” and “Spenser Confidential,” which were both in the top spot for five straight days.

“Tiger King’s” 15 days overall as the top title on Netflix is also far and away the most days spent at number one by any show or movie on the service.

These records are relatively new, of course: Netflix has only been publicly sharing its Top 10 lists — which cover TV, movies and a mixed overall category — since late February.

However, sometimes contestants who make for compelling television aren’t always the same as musical artists who can sell records.

In other cases, Republic does sign the winner and then simply mismanages them or doesn’t make them a priority. »

Modly then phoned Ignatius at 1 a.m. to deny the story, saying he’d moved against Crozier before he heard from Trump.

Modly—a businessman who graduated from the Navy Academy and once served as a Navy helicopter pilot—was nominated for his job just five months ago.

He replaced Richard Spencer, who was fired after disagreeing with Trump’s pardoning of Eddie Gallagher, a Navy SEAL accused of war crimes. »
