Let's be real: sometimes we just need to put something trashy on the TV in order to unwind from a stressful day. Maybe you're a fan of "Big Brother." Maybe it's "The Bachelorette." In general, though, what show does Colorado most turn to?

It's no surprise that we were captivated, as a state, by something involving animals: As lovers of the outdoors and of our four-legged friends, we latched onto the drama and the tragic rise and fall of a controversial zoo keeper's story.

That's right. I'm talking about "Tiger King."

TakeSpruce.com, who did the study, said this about the trend:

Tiger King’s wild characters and antagonistic relationship between Joe Exotic and Carole Baskins emblemized trashy TV’s ability to serve self-care during the stresses of the coronavirus pandemic, as reported in an article from Wired.com. Hopefully, Midwesterners binging the show were able to de-stress by reveling in the wild stories surrounding America’s big cats.

"Tiger King" ended up being a popular choice for America with 8 states choosing the Netflix original, while "Catfish" also claimed a popular spot. Which show is your favorite?
