ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance’ Passes ‘Tiger King’ As The Most Popular Documentary In The World
ESPN’s ‘The Last Dance” is the king of the documentaries during quarantine.
For the past two weeks, the Chicago Bulls documentary has been a ratings hit for the network that has struggled with absence of sports.
The Last Dance has been so popular that it has overtaken Netflix’s “Tiger King” as the most in-demand documentary in the world according to a report from Parrot Analytics.
ESPN’s Michael Jordan documentary, “The Last Dance,” has overtaken Netflix Inc.’s “Tiger King” as the most in-demand documentary in the world, a boost for the cable giant at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has shut down live sports and slashed its audience ratings.
“The Last Dance” was one of the 20 most in-demand shows in the world this week, according to Parrot Analytics, a research firm that tracks audience interest using data that includes social-media conversations and piracy. The show is even more popular in the U.S., where it ranked as 11th this week.
With the next few episodes focusing on the Dream Team and Kobe Bryant it doesn’t seem like The Last Dance will show signs of slowing down.
