The Wildly Popular TV Host Accused of Killing People to Boost His Ratings

When it comes to true-crime series, the more bizarre and perplexing, the better. And few have fit that bill quite as ably as Killer Ratings, a jaw-dropping new non-fiction effort with a story that would barely be believable as a tawdry B-movie, much less as reality, if not for the conclusive evidence that it actually took place.

The true-crime series ‘Killer Ratings,’ currently streaming on Netflix, probes the life of Wallace Souza, a No. 1-rated TV host in Brazil accused of offing people to up ratings.
