have to disagree with you on this one. While Dr. Phil is a legitimate doctor, he has sold himself out. Let's face it. Therapy isn't entertaining. I have sat behind a mirror for hundreds of hours watching people do therapy and it is a challenge every time to watch it. Dr. Phil does not do therapy on his show. He simply brings couples on, chews them out, makes a few laughing comments and sends them on their way. Additionally, Dr. Phil tries to sensationalize his topics (e.g. I'm dating a married man) in order to create interest. In other words, he's an entertainer just like Jerry Springer.

Regardless of what your personal opinion is of him, he does have valid points and is usually right. There is nothing on that list that I don't agree with.
