I dont know if its just me, but isn't Dr. Phill a pretty creepy guy? I cant stand his self rightous declerations of help. He doesn't help you, he tells you that he IS helping you. And why did he get his own show? And why are they showing it on Public Access? And why did he get divorced recently?

And why does my mother watch Oprah all the time? I actually dont mind Orpah, Its just that when she has these self help people on her show, like Phill, then all of a sudden I have to eat that rice with the sticks and leaves and grains and stuff in it, and we have to talk about why I spend alot of time in my room plugged into earphones and we have to talk about how I'm REALLY feeling. What the hell? These self-help people arent helping me much.

But besides that, he's so aggressive, and unwavering, like one of those priests that is always shouting JEEEEESUS! (Note the tremelo on the EEEEE). But instead its like PROOOOZAC! (Note the tremelo on the OOOO).

I am glad for people that do find genuine help from the guy, and Im sure there are those (well, kinda sure), but the guy just creeps me out.

Well Said!

IMHO, Dr. Phil is only saying what we already know, in my channel surfing experiences I caught the title on his show, Addicted to Porn. Thought i would check it out for a few minutes, he is grilling some man who is addicted to porn. I mean is this really that big of a problem? I mean atleast he is getting some exercise.


Waste of TV time I think.

Oprah can not be grouped with him I believe. Its tough to speak out against Oprah with all that she has accomplished. But Ol' Phil on the other hand isn't saying I have not heard before.

I've never seen his show, but he's been in the news a lot recently and he does look creepy.

He's gotten himself in a heap of trouble lately, between the Natalee Holloway case altered tape plus some kind of diet plan he endorsed people are suing him over.

I've seen some actually climax ... well seemed like they were


Give me break!!! lol I agree,definitely creepy. And not really all that bright either, all he does is help the misguided ones who have messed up understand what life is about again. Well, his view anyway. And good for them if they are indeed getting help, I'd sooner die than admit I effed up at life so bad I had to go on a talk show, and his especially lol

He is just unecessary.

He has become a spokesman for the politically correct mind set. Every time I see him now, he seems more concerned about his own ego than actually helping people. I actually heard him say the other day that it's "wrong to hold your infant child too much, because they will become too attached to you." This kind of advice is making things worse IMO...

First off, Dr. Phil is a moron.

Lets proceed.




McGraw was born in Vinita, Oklahoma and spent most of his childhood in both Oklahoma and Texas. His father was an equipment supplier for oil drilling who left his job to pursue his Ph.D. in psychology. McGraw won a football scholarship and played as a linebacker for the University of Tulsa, but when he was injured he quit and transferred to Midwestern State University. He graduated with a B.A. in psychology in 1975, and went on to get his Ph.D. from the University of North Texas in 1979.

McGraw spent the next decade working with his father as a therapist. In 1988, he was publicly reprimanded by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists for having an "inappropriate dual relationship" in employing a 19-year-old female former client. In 1989 with attorney Gary Dobbs he formed Courtroom Sciences, Inc., a consulting firm to provide assistance with courtroom trials. When Oprah Winfrey was sued by Texas cattle ranchers for defamation in 1996, her attorney hired CSI.

Winfrey was impressed with McGraw and in 1998 he began appearing weekly on her show as a "Relationship and Life Strategy Expert". In 2002, he was given his own syndicated daily TV show, Dr. Phil, produced by Winfrey's Harpo Studios. The format is an advice show, where he tackles a different topic on each show, offering advice for his guests' troubles. McGraw has authored a number of self-help books on topics such as relationships and weight loss.


en.wikipedia.org...

That link will explain his past.

He is a moron. The "advice" he gives is hilarious at best and is nothing a monkey with keyboard couldn't produce.

Make sure you buy his books. Family first ! Family first ! FAMILY FIRST !!!!

I saw something on TV. Don't know how accurate it was ...
but it was his FIRST wife. She got on and said how he wanted
her to be working out all the time, how he wanted 'arm candy'
and an idiot wife who looked great and had big boobs. Then
he left her for 'better things'.

I laughed last week when I saw a promo for 1st Wives on his
show. Isn't he one of those men who created a 1st Wife?

(1st Wife = a woman who got dumped by hubby when he
got rich, got famous, or got older ... and she got dumped
for someone younger and better looking)

Dr. Phil info on line seems to back this up -

You ain't kidding dg. His son sounds EXACTLY like him. Now that's really not that abnormal, but in their case it is creepy for some reason. The son also has the same mannerisms and voice inflection as his father. He's like the Dr. Phil clone from hell.

Honestly, Dr. Phil does give great advice and is definitely worth listening to, but he's gotten so big that he's now a characature of his former self.

Peace

He's great humor fodder for Dave Letterman and Mad TV. Ever see Michael McDonald's (Mad TV, not the Doobie Brother) impression? "Absolutely, Oprah!"

I hate Dr. Phil too. I only have an milagram of respect for him because he promoted BSB's new CD and had aj on one of the "Addictions shows" talking about his old problems so other people(and his fans) wouldn't be as likely to do it.

But yeah, I hate him he does the "voice roll" thing, and has this whole "bad-evangilical preacher" vibe I don't like, so I avoid him, like ppl avoid BSB. Now let's ignore his shows, books, and Oprah Apperances, and - Have these hot choclates and have an awesome Dry party for no reason.LOL :w:

I've caught some of Doctor Phil's show and I have an idea about why people watch it. Its not really what he is telling these people because as you all have just mentioned, its mostly common knowledge stuff but I think the real draw is that the guest seem to need to be told this and we all feel superior to the poor stupid people who don't even know there's something wrong with (insert obvious stupid act here).

All I could keep think is that these people have to be actors following a script because nobody is that stupid...are they?

They'll make you wonder through. That's for sure. Like the other day, he had an ad for his show, where he was having these moms "learn" to organize, and some poor mom, who was poor, and working hard wins a makeover and spa-talk show day kind of thing.

I guess some people like it. I'm just happy AJ made another MTV Cribs episode and is going to make a thrid one. But otherwise, I try to "get away" from Dr. Phil and his creepy nosiness.*shivers*

But then again, I'm stubborn.

What kills me about Dr. Phil is his health advice. Who is this fat man to tell me how to lose weight?

Because he's Dr. Phil? /sarcasm

But seriously, I was coming home in between classes and I went to the living room in my place and was like, whatcha watching? And my mom was like, Dr. Phil. So I sat down and was watching this show and all that it was was udder crap. I mean, I love to watch those Judge Mathis and all of those shows. But Dr. Phil reminds me of my High School councillor Just monotone and pointed out obvious crap like, "You should really start studying because finals are coming up" and I would be like, "I was so unaware even though I haven't missed a class. Thank you soooo much for telling me." Same concept.
