Dr. Stork Gives Stress-Relief Advice on 'The Early Show' (VIDEO)

Dr Travis Stork talks stress relief on 'The Early Show'One of the chief questions that preoccupies us in modern times is, how do we relieve stress? That question was put to Dr. Travis Stork of 'The Doctors' Tuesday morning on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) in a viewer Q&A segment. The man said he had a stressful job and found it hard to relax when he got home, and asked how he could tell he might need to see a doctor about it.

Dr. Stork's advice? "If you're getting to the point where you're emotionally exhausted," he said, "completely burnt out, you're starting to feel depressed and sad all the time, if you're having insomnia and you can't sleep at night, that's when you need to go seek help."

'The Doctors' Frighteningly Demonstrate Scrotal Surgery (VIDEO)

A demonstration on 'The Doctors'Sometimes guys can be shy about asking their own doctors about, well, stuff that has to do with their "privates." Which may be why 'The Doctors' (weekdays, syndicated) decided to devote a good portion of Thursday's to the subject. The title of the show was 'All About Your Privates,' and featured a frightening demonstration of scrotal surgery.

One caller, the otherwise anonymous "John," asked what he could do about his excess scrotum skin. The doctors explained a surgical procedure to trim off the redundant skin using a small bag and a pair of scissors to demonstrate. They were careful to note the procedure is done under anesthesia. We're not sure why they didn't think we'd assume that, but that didn't make the image any less terrifying.

Then there was another lesson on vascular processes as they relate to male genitals during orgasm, which noted that if you have erectile dysfunction, it is a vascular and not a muscular problem. To be fair, watching this show could also cause erectile dysfunction.

Katie Couric Talks Virtual Colonoscopies on 'The Doctors' (VIDEO)

Katie Couric on 'The Doctors'Katie Couric spoke about colonoscopies, virtual and otherwise, today as a guest on 'The Doctors' (weekdays, syndicated). Host Lisa Masterson, an OB/GYN, said she always counsels her patients to get colonoscopy. She asked if it was OK to try to get patients to do a virtual colonoscopy first, even if the benefits weren't the same as the traditional procedure.

"As for the virtual colonoscopy, the latest test shows it can be as efficacious as a traditional colonoscopy," said Couric. She added she thought the preparation for the procedure is often worse than the procedure itself. "Because the fact that they call the drink that you drink 'go lightly' is such a joke, because it does not make you go lightly. I can tell you that from personal experience."

Point taken, but that's probably not the best angle to take if you're actually urging people to get a colonoscopy for their health.

TVR Awards -- Biggest Daytime Gross-Out of 2010 (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 22nd 2010 10:45AM

What's grosser than gross? Daytime TV, of course. If it's stomach-churning moments you're after, look no further. Our nominees for the Biggest Daytime Gross-Out of 2010 include sexually suggestive workouts, medical oddities, a man intent upon milking himself and a poor sap who eats something he definitely shouldn't. All that's missing are people doing disgusting things with urine. Oh, wait ...

Doctor Gets Urine Facial on 'Doctors' (VIDEO)

The DoctorsYour pee is good for you! Wait, what? Yep, the panel on 'The Doctors' (weekdays, syndicated) showed the world just what pee can be used for.

One doctor drank urine because in some places its considered healthy. We've all heard about drinking urine for survival in desperation, never by choice. Weird.

Another doctor got a urine facial, citing the benefits of urea creatinine. This isn't something you'd find us partaking in.

'Designing Women,' 'Desperate Housewives' Star Dixie Carter Dead at 70

Dixie CarterJust last night I was watching a TV commercial featuring Dixie Carter, talking to the camera about a terrible disease whose name escapes me at the moment. And tonight comes the news that Carter has passed away at the age of 70. No further details have been released yet.

Carter is probably best known for her role as feisty, outspoken (well, all of the women were pretty feisty and outspoken on that show, weren't they?) Julia Sugarbaker on 'Designing Women,' which ran on CBS for eight years. But younger TV watchers might know her from her role on 'Desperate Housewives' as Gloria, the loopy mom of Orson (she was nominated for an Emmy for the role). But she actually starred in several other TV shows over the years, including 'Family Law,' 'Ladies Man,' 'Filthy Rich,' 'Out of the Blue,' and 'On Our Own,' not to mention numerous guest roles on many other shows. Her first TV role was in the soap 'The Doctors.'

Did 'The Doctors' Trick A Man Into Penis Surgery?

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 7th 2010 7:30PM
the_doctors_cbs_logo_2010If this story weren't so strange, you would swear it was a FunnyorDie.com sketch. It could be a 'Saturday Night Live' bit, but their stuff is rarely this hilarious. Tyler Bowling, a 21-year-old Minnesotan who had a condition that caused white pimples to appear on his penis, received a free laser treatment for removal of the penile papules when he consulted with Dr. William Groff in Los Angeles. The $4,500 procedure was done gratis in exchange for Tyler's story to be told on CBS's syndicated daytime show, 'The Doctors.'

However, Tyler Bowling is filing suit against the doctor, his practice, the producers of 'The Doctors' and even the company that created the laser that was used to fix his problems, claiming he was tricked into getting the work done and becoming the fodder for the TV show.

'General Hospital' Casts Michael Learned and Unveils New Credits

Michael_learned_varietyWhat do you get when you turn 12,000 episodes old? Why, a new set of opening credits, naturally. That's what'll happen today as 'General Hospital' unveils a new set of opening credits to coincide with the milestone occasion.

By the way, if you're wondering, 'GH's' 12,000 episodes equates to nearly 47 years of continuing daytime drama. The show began on April 1, 1963, and it was not an April's Fool joke. It was something different at the time, because most of the soaps were New York based.

In fact, on the same day 'GH' launched, NBC premiered a new medical soap, too, out of New York. It was called 'The Doctors,' and for the first decade or so 'GH' and 'The Doctors' were on TV, the NBC show was a better soap. However, all that changed in 1978 when Gloria Monty became executive director... which led to the Luke and Laura sensation.

MSNBC drops Dr. Nancy daytime show

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 28th 2009 4:12PM
dr_nancy_snydermanSort of lost in the shuffle of the pre-Christmas news was this item. MSNBC has cancelled the Dr. Nancy show. What? You didn't even know there was a Dr. Nancy show starring NBC medical/health expert Dr. Nancy Snyderman? Don't worry. Most people weren't either. MSNBC plopped Dr. Nancy at 12 noon on June 29 and then did next to nothing to promote the show.

Even if MSNBC had done some publicity, it may not have helped. MSNBC daytime is a major problem for the network. They've been juggling and re-juggling the personalities, but nothing has worked. So while Dylan Ratigan is getting another slot on the channel, Dr. Nancy will return to her work as NBC's chief medical editor doing the NBC News and Today.
