Letterman Talks Late-Night Leno/O'Brien War to Dr. Phil (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Apr 27th 2010 7:21AM
Letterman, Dr. Phil Talk Late-Night WarsEvidently David Letterman still has a lot to say about last January's late-night wars between Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien. Even though Dr. Phil McGraw was on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS) to do the talking, it was the psychologist's question to Letterman about the Leno-O'Brien showdown that made the host so chatty.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Dr. Phil' Will Tell It Like It Is Until 2014

by Lauren Metz, posted Nov 9th 2009 3:00PM
Dr. Phil McGraw"Let's do it!" You can count on hearing this, and all of Dr. Phil's catch phrases, for the next three years as his talk show has been renewed to run through 2013-2014.

'Dr. Phil' first premiered Sept. 16, 2002, and the extension will take the show through its 12th season. Phil McGraw, a quirky Texan clinical psychologist, first came to fame when he helped Oprah Winfrey win a 1998 lawsuit broughton on by cattle farmers who claimed she defamed the beef industry. The daytime talk show queen felt so inspired by McGraw's straight-to-the-point attitude that she invited him to tackle life issues on her show.

Leno Weekly: Chelsea Handler, Dr. Phil, Ewan McGregor and more!

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 31st 2009 1:01AM
Chelsea Handler, Playboy MagazineHey, a lot happens in five shows. Let's get right into it!

Arsenio Hall was featured twice this week. His first appearance was in a segment that had potential called "This Is What They Said/This Is What They Meant." I was expecting to see video clips of celebrities, politicians and the like spouting their same bullcrap, and then having Hall tell us what he thinks they really meant. Instead, it was Leno reading quotes, including historically famous ones like Julius Ceasar's "Et tu, Brute!" The gag didn't make sense anymore, and even worse the bits weren't funny.

Luckily, he came back later in the week with an on-site spot at Yankee Stadium, where he interviewed players from both teams and even set up a bet against a Yankees player and Phillies fan Kevin Eubanks involving Snuggies.

Hide the kids! Dr. Phil is ready to rock!

by Joel Keller, posted May 5th 2006 5:40PM
Dr. PhilWell, "rock" is a relative term here. Dr. Phil McGraw, noted "expert" on every aspect of people's lives, will appear at a benefit concert with Christina Aguilera, Andrea Bocelli, Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, and Martina McBride (see? Not a rock star in the bunch) to raise money for after-school programs. The concert, nerdily dubbed JCPenney Jam, will air on CBS on August 22.

Sounds like it's gonna suck. Oh, well. At least it's for a good cause.

Jeez alou, I do love nutty daytime talk show guests

Dr. Phil and the tragic heavy legsI'm transitioning from an IT career to one of a full-time freelance writer. Because of this, I'm spending more time at home during the day. And, despite my better judgement, I leave the TV on in the background while I work. I've been getting in the habit of putting on Dr. Phil at 3:00, and, while I think Phil's a blowhard who often states the obvious, I do like seeing him yell at the idiots that come on his show.

Case in point: today, a couple comes on to talk about the major strife in their marriage. It's so troubling, that the woman, a mature, pretty and intelligent blonde, breaks down and cries. What's the problem? Infidelity? Health problems? Money issues?

Nope, it's none of those things.

She's got "heavy legs".

Dr. Phil guest charged with bigamy

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 4th 2006 12:03PM

dr philMaybe I'm just lazy or I lack initiative, but if I were going to commit a crime, I don't think it would be bigamy. Trying to juggle that many secret lives just takes way too much effort, you know? I'm just saying.

Anyway, a man who appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil was arrested recently for bigamy. Charles Edward Hicks had been married seven times in forty years. The show focused on two women who had learned recently they had both been married to Hicks. What Hicks didn't count on was that the sister of his girlfriend was watching the show and called authorities. He'll be sentenced on May 8 and could face as much as ten years in prison.

Is America finally getting tired of Dr. Phil?

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 4th 2006 10:36AM
dr phil pollMaybe Dr. Phil has finally fallen out of favor with Americans. Or, maybe I'm reading way too much into an annual poll listing the Top 10 Favorite Television Personalities. Since 1993, Harris Poll has conducted a research project listing Americans' favorite celebrities. Dr. Phil, Regis Philbin, Ray Romano, and Bill Cosby all fell off the list this year.

The pollsters conducted their research online, and only interviewed 960 adults. So, I'd say that leaves out a significant portion of the population that isn't yet "wired".

Anywho, here's the list:
