Dahmer: Monster - The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is officially one of Netflix's biggest shows ever.
The Ryan Murphy-helmed miniseries, which stars Evan Peters as the infamous serial killer, earned a shocking 299.84 millon hours viewed its second week. This comes after it delivered the biggest Week 1 results - 196.2 million hours viewed - for any Netflix original ever. This puts the total viewing hours for the show at 496.05 million so far, just behind 13 Reason Why Season 2's 496.1 million hours viewed in its first 28 days.
Dahmer: Monster - The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is now the ninth most popular Netflix series of all time. Stranger Things 4 currently holds the top honors, having been viewed some 1.35 billion hours in its first month.
