I really do detest that man and his arrogance. I would probably not even bother to show up.

Best Answer

I love Dr. Phil. He gets straight to the point and doesn't let anyone pull the wool over his eyes. He's amazing.

Best Answer

I find his advice rather simplistic and hardly effective to be honest. He seems to be quite judgemental at times as well. I also detest the sound of the clapping audience after one of his standard remarks. Anyway let's agree to disagree :)

Best Answer

He just knows what he is talking about. He keeps it short and sweet but he still cares for everyone that comes on his show and is always willing to pay for the aftercare of families that need it.

Best Answer

Surely he will do that. He also likes to donate quite some money to charities related to the subject that was handled on his show. Public relations must be important to him.

Best Answer

thats cool but does he profit from it?

Best Answer

Completely agree with your assessment of him, GreatLeveler. Much of what is discussed on his show should also be done behind closed doors, not on television for the titillation and amusement of his viewers. And It never ceases to amaze me how many people are willing to air their dirty laundry in public. That kind of exhibitionism is beyond my comprehension.

Best Answer

He doesn't force anyone to be on his show. They willingly write in and if their story gets selected most of them willingly come on the air. He's not like maury or those other dumb shows that are there just for drama. He truly helps people with their problems and doesn't put up with anyone's crap.

Best Answer

I agree that no one is forced to go on his show and that it has far more socially redeeming value than Maury and those other crap shows. That said, I think people's desire for fame at any cost is being exploited by Dr. Phil. National television is a terrible place to get therapy.

Best Answer

indeed

Best Answer

Dr. Phil doesn't exploit anyone. And sometimes those people need a wake up call. That's why some of them appear on tv, correct? Besides, he does a lot of behind the scenes counseling too.

Best Answer

the problem is just like reality tv , it often doesnt fix the problem ; however what often happens are vulnerable are usually exploited for entertainment on daytime tv

Best Answer

Agreeing with everything you just mentioned. He also seems to pick sides quite often and target some of his contestants in order to score cheap points with the audience and viewers. At times it looks more like a play performance for tv than an actual psychological sitdown. TV ratings must play a part in this. I also remember one fragment of a guy being invited to his show only to be send off by Dr. Phil for his human degrading behaviours. Why then invite him in the first place?

Best Answer

He doesn't pick sides. But he understands who's at fault and who's the victim caught in the middle. He is such a God-fearing and wise man.

Best Answer

god fearing may be admirable but is he actually helping them or feeling their problems?

Best Answer

Yes, he is. He even pays for the after care in treatment facilties if they wish.

Best Answer

Ok seems legitimate

Best Answer

I'll give him credit for paying for whatever care they need after the show. That's an undeniably good thing for him to do.

I'd sabotage the interview by stringing together as many expletives as I could. They'd have to bleep out so much that essentially nothing I said could be broadcast.

Best Answer

No, thank you, but thanks for asking.

Best Answer

I'd wrote to be on his show through online LOL, so I guess I'd be thrilled to hear his opinion. Though I don't think it'll be much of help.

Best Answer

Awww.. I hope you get to go on the show or get some help *hugs*

Best Answer

It's been months don't think they'll ever contact me, but thank you :)

Best Answer

i dont think hes genuine, i think he may be a celebrity who possibly specialises in self help ,who may play at being a psychologist

Best Answer

He's very genuine.

Best Answer

The problem is he profits from what he does

Councillors don't get famous or often paid

Many people face ridicule on daytime talk shows

He may not but is it healthy for one's personal problems to become mass entertainment?
