Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, but he says he has zero interest in pursuing his own TV show.

He might be on TV a lot, but don’t expect to see him on his own series…

Attorney Michael Avenatti, best known as the man representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels, has been spending a lot of time on television lately. More than happy to do interviews, Avenatti has been seen on countless programs at different times of the day. Of course, he spends a lot of time talking about the infamous court case between Daniels and the president of the United States, Donald Trump.

Critics of Avenatti have accused the man of trying to get his own TV series out of this deal. Perhaps it would be a mix of a legal drama with reality TV? In any case, after an appearance on television last night, enough people have been saying it for Avenatti to respond to the comments on social media today.

Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Avenatti came onto the show, no less joined by Anthony Scaramucci. “Last night was not a ‘debut,’ Avenatti insists on Twitter. “To be clear: I have ZERO interest in my own TV show. My focus is on winning the cases at hand for my client and disclosing the truth about the cover-up to the American people.”

In any case, Avenatti’s appearance on the show was rather interesting. The man does seem pretty comfortable on TV, but his own show doesn’t seem to be in the cards. You can watch a bit from his appearance in the video below.

Even if Avenatti doesn’t get his own show, he just might show up again on Colbert’s show. Tune in when new episodes of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert air weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on CBS.
