The premiere of the second season of Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” showcasing the dysfunctional world of big cat collectors, generated more than 1.3 million U.S. households following its Nov. 17 debut, according to new data from Samba TV.
The data firm, which tracks more than 46 million opted-in televisions globally, including 28 million in the United States, said the episode topped the launch of Warner Bros. Pictures’ King Richard, the Will Smith-starring biopic about the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams.
The movie tracked 707,000 U.S. households on HBO Max while simultaneously screening in theaters, where it sold $5.4 million worth of tickets domestically, $7.8 million worldwide.
Samba said the U.S. “Tiger King 2” audience skewed slightly female (+2%), younger (44 years and younger), and white (+9%). The King Richard audience skewed female (+7%) and black (+54%).
Finally, 116,000 U.S. households streamed the first episode of “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” on Peacock, with 102,000 households streaming episode two. The third episode was streamed by 92,000 homes, with 100,000 households streaming episode four. The audiences skewed female and white.
