The return of the Tiger King, Louis and Love on the Spectrum
From the insanely all-American exploits in big cat enclosures, to the quest of finding love for neurodiverse singles, Issue 96 of the ClickView TV Guide is delivering an array of captivating programmes over the next fortnight. Louis Theroux revisits the trials and tribulations of none other than Joe Exotic, one of his most explosive and infamous subjects. We’re also delighted to see the return of the heartwarming endeavour into the daunting world of dating with Season 2 of Love on the Spectrum.
Before Netflix, There Was Louis
Everyone remembers the wild year that was 2020 for two things only – the COVID-19 pandemic and the unforgettable, bizarre and twisted tales of Netflix’s Tiger King. Joe Exotic cemented himself as a cultural icon overnight alongside big cat enthusiast (and suspected murderer) Carole Baskin. Now over a year after the phenomenon aired, Louis Theroux revisits the chaotic and controversial tiger king in Shooting Joe Exotic. Investigating his unbelievable life story with unseen footage from Theroux’s 2011 special USA’s Most Dangerous Pets, Theroux reminisces on his time with Exotic and meets the legal team trying to get him out from behind bars. Mark your calendars for this special on ABC, Tuesday night at 9.30pm.

From first dates to speed dating and one-on-one social lessons with relationship expert Jodi Rogers, Love on the Spectrum is being celebrated for its educational portrayal of diversity and difference. Catch Episode 2 this Tuesday night on ABC.
