Fads and trends never cease and either evolve or wither away. 2020 was no different, even through a pandemic, economic recession and presidential election. New data from Frontierbundles.com contends streaming Netflix original series, “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” showcasing the crazy world of wild animal conservationists and opportunists willing to exploit them for profit, was named one of the notable trends in the country in 2020, based in part on social media searches.
The series tracked 34.3 million viewers on March 20 after launching at the begin of the pandemic, with Netflix viewership topping nationally in Oklahoma, where the series was based pitting Carole Baskin, owner of Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Fla., against eccentric local collectors such as Joe Exotic, among others.
The launches of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Series S, and Sony PlayStation 5 video game consoles was listed as well, with Google searches for “PS5” topping 4.6 million on the platform’s Nov. 12 debut.
