Investment losses have been common across the country due to a bearish stock market, and “UPMC has not been immune to those trends. In the first nine months of this year, UPMC reported more than $1.2 billion in losses from investing and financial services.”

I know the show is extremely popular, and 1 billion minutes is a lot of minutes. However using this kind of metric is meaningless to me and I suspect most people. How does this compare to other shows? How many people have hbo, the only legitimate place to watch it? 1 billion minutes isn’t a measurement literally anyone uses. It just sounds impressive and good clickbait bullshit for the PR bots to push on to the internet.
