The Times reported the show would feature Spicer interviewing public figures and have respectful conversations on topics ranging from the media to sports to marriage.
Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits about an alleged affair with President Trump, says he was approached to be a guest on the inaugural episode. Avenatti wrote on Twitter he declined.
I turned down Sean Spicer for his new show despite the fact that it would have been YUGE with the biggest ratings since the Apprentice and the largest live audience since the 2017 Inauguration (which was the largest ever on record)!!!!!!!!!
