    Well, the firee certainly sounds like Nancy Grace of HLNtv/CNN. I guess that would make her boss Jeff Zucker. She is on scary broad! lol I have no idea who the claimer would be.

      No, she’s not scary! Heard her being interviewed and she is a riot, really funny & just playing a part for ratings. As are most of the talking heads on t.v…..

    I think there’s a Guiliana Rancic connection because her husband was on The Apprentice, but I can’t connect all of the dots.

    Oh, this is Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood. Waxman is the Claimer, and Jay Penske is the Boss.

    Team Nikke! Deadline Hollywood is head over heels better than what Ms. Finke calls The Crap.

    I think the blind leans on the oft-quoted stereotype of latinas being “feisty” and the Firee is Natalie Morales from the Today Show. So NBC would be the Firee’s boss and ABC is the likely rival network, though I can’t figure out exactly who the Claimer is…

    Other clues that point towards this being the Today Show include: “we have a little variety for you TODAY”, after the Ann Curry debacle it is understandable that the NBC execs would be nervious about firing another co-host, and the last line of the blind could be referring to Matt’s wife, who would be VERY happy if Natalie left

    Nikki Finke. She is powerful and scary. She’ll bounce back somewhere else.

    That “artist’s rendition” of Nikki Finke is probably more accurate than that 20-year-old picture of her at the bottom that everyone uses. Love it.
