"I binged in this show 'The Good Wife.' I watched 100 episodes of 'The Good Wife' in three weeks. That was actually before I retired. I had everything planned out so that we were going to announce my successor before Christmas. And then the board decided not to. They hadn't made a final call.

While it isn't the most earth-shattering news, stuff like this is always fun to hear. Next time you feel bad about sitting on the couch for a weekend catching up on House of Cards or Game of Thrones, just remember - the head of one of the biggest companies on the planet once fit 100 episodes of The Good Wife into just a few weeks.
