CIRP estimates that proprietary program viewership ranges from over 80 percent of HBO Go subscribers who have watched at least one episode of Game of Thrones to less than 40 percent of Amazon Prime members who have watched at least one episode of Transparent.

The idea of people reinventing themselves for Hollywood is not novel -- the concept is probably as old as Hollywood itself. What is remarkable are women like Davis, Rhimes, Mindy Kaling, Tina Fey and others, who are actually reinventing Hollywood.

Sunday night's show shines as an even bigger moment for women. To deliver such pro-female, feminist-centric comedy gold at one of notoriously sexist Hollywood's biggest nights is no small feat. And after Fey and Poehler set the evening's feminist tone, the women of Hollywood ran with it.
To CBS Films: We are the gays and lesbians and we have supported you by seeing the film, talking about it, and sharing the message with out friends. Now it's time for you to act like the miners at the end of the film. Because of our solidarity, show some solidarity towards us: Fix the cover.
