Dr. Phil exploits mentally ill woman for ratings.

He's sicker than she is.

This interview was sure disturbing to watch, this guy is a ********* for doing what he did to Shelley Duvall.
The Shining is in the list of my all-time favorite movies and her acting there was really amazing! I wasn't aware of her condition, and I don't think she deserves to be made fun of for the ratings of some stupid show.

The fact that shows like "Dr. Phil" exist is the part that's sad I think.

Everything - and I do mean everything - he says should be 100% common sense, but at some point humanity decided to become morons and somehow a large population is "enlightened" by this character answering common sense questions asked by absolute idiots.

Plus 1,000,000.
When people care about what the Kardashiens are up to, what Oprah thinks, what's on Dr Phil or, the opinion of those on The View, It is the beginning of the end.

No troll here. I am a better person because I have never watched a Dr. Phil, Kardashian, or a Oprah show. I still live in a cave.

I'm convinced he's all about the money. Content takes a backseat.

In my opinion his wife looks like she's had tons of plastic surgery (at least 2 boob jobs) yet she denies it (i.e. Michael Jackson=STRANGE) and nobody ever calls her out on it--even though before-and-after photos reveal that she remains an average-looking woman (at best).

Seems to me that somebody needs to have a "talk" with Mrs. McGraw about her insecurity/plastic surgery denial issues.

They both hide (and profit) behind the façade of down-to-earth straight talk. Most people just won't choose to think for themselves. It's easier to have an "expert" do that for them.

Anyone with a little bit of sanity left would jump on the opportunity to get paid millions to have your own show where you teach "guests" that dropping out of high school in order to start your own met lab is indeed a bad idea and have the people in the studio clap at you.

I don't even fault Dr. Phil. I have zero doubts he goes home at night and sips a glass of bourbon and smokes a stogie and laughs his face off at how stupid the people on his show are - and you know what .... I'm completely OK with it. It's humanity I'm sad for. It's the people ON his show.

It's the same as Dr. Oz. My mother in law buys everything in sight with his name or face on it so she can get in on his "newest health tips". All of a sudden she's practically living off almonds and olive oil because "Dr. Oz said so".

Anybody who thinks he can't sell anything can look to guys like Dr. Phil for inspiration. He's so full of shiat but his audience (i.e. women) either doesn't seem to know or care.

With $77m in earnings in 2015 & a nett worth of $400m, I really don't think Dr Phil gives a s#!t.

hate to disagree,
up until recently I was
an Alcoholic, drug dependent, wife beating, cheating sumbitch, with a gambling addiction and a penchant for scamming people on the interweb

I also drove a 2002 Dodge Neon

Since I watched dr Phil I have mended my ways and integrated into society

If it wasn't for Dr Phil I would be in the 128i vert, I would be popping $ bills into strippers g strings
