    Despite missteps late in 2011 and a decimated stock price, Netflix is still a force to be reckoned with. The company kicked off the year with its launch in the U.K. and Ireland. BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield said in early 2012 that Netflix soon would be the 15th-most-watched TV network in the U.S. -- and a whopping No. 2 in the 20 million homes that subscribe to its streaming service. Meanwhile, Hastings, 51, and Sarandos, 47, are plowing into original programming with upcoming series including Lilyhammer, Hemlock Grove and the David Fincher-directed House of Cards in an attempt to create must-stream TV.
