Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black"

Netflix has poured millions into producing its own original shows, but the company is notoriously secretive about telling us how many people are watching them.


We know which shows people are talking about, like "House of Cards" or "Orange Is the New Black" (new season June 17), but that doesn't necessarily represent the quality of the show.
