Maggie Haberman of the New York Times reported the United Talent Agency has pitched a reboot of the political talk show Crossfire to network executives. The show would feature the banter of Anthony Scaramucci, the man who was fired from the White House before his actual start date, and Michael Avenatti, the increasingly camera-friendly attorney for adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The reaction on Twitter was swift—and took a rather surprising twist:

Thanks for the laugh!
Most of the reaction to a possible Scaramucci vs. Avenatti show was a giant NOPE.
I will watch, but only if they do a split screen for the whole fucking show, and only if we are able to block out half the screen, and only if Scaramucci's voice is muted, and only if at the end of each show Scaramucci swims in a tank with hungry sharks.
