Bus/Financial - Economics
English term or phrase: "the fat"
Hola, estoy subtitulando una película y tengo una duda. En una parte, se está describiendo la situación económica de un canal de televisión, y el titular del canal dice:

UBS was running at a cash flow
of break-even point
after taking into account $110 million
of negative cash flow from the network.
It was clear the fat on the network
had to be flitched off.

¿Qué me sugieren para "the fat"? Creo que se refiere a uno de los principales presentadores de los programas de ese canal, pero no estoy segura...

Desde ya, muchas gracias.
