Former White House Spokesman Sean Spicer continues to be a ratings machine.

Not only did he make news on HLN host S.E. Cupp’s Thursday show, but he boosted her ratings over three times, according to preliminary numbers.

Typically S.E. Cupp Unflitered pulls in an average of 70,000, and Thursday drew 251,000.

It was during his appearance that Spicer said that sometimes “I screwed up.”

Spicer struck ratings gold in September when he helped Jimmy Kimmel Live to a viewer high.
