Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has lost the number spot as the most-watched TV series on Netflix after 21 consecutive days. The series slipped to #2 on October 14 after the release of another one of Ryan Murphy’s series The Watcher. Both shows are true-crime limited series and were a part of Murphy and Netflix’s big overall deal.
Previously Murphy created Netflix’s Hollywood and Halston as part of the deal, and the creator took some time to bring around the next batch of shows and both of them are finally here. Dahmer and The Watcher were both co-created by Murphy and Ian Brennan. Other Murphy shows like Ratched and The Politician were not a part of this deal, because they are pre-existing shows that were commissioned before the deal came into place.
