Television Tuesday: A Dr. Phil Channel, Why?

I am a fan of Oprah Winfrey and all the amazing things she has done. That said, there are two things I will never forgive her for. Namely, making Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz famous. Dr. Oz is at least an actual doctor who practiced medicine even if there is a lot to dislike about him. Dr. Phil though? He's just irritating and his show seemed more interested in him trotting out people with serious problems and getting viewers than having anyone get actual help. At least Jerry Springer or Maury didn't put on airs with their shows and knew we wanted to see outlandish stuff without the pretense they were going to actually assist someone with their non-existent or expired accreditations

All of that said, Dr. Phil called it quits with his show a bit ago but is coming back with a whole television channel featuring, "Quality," programming as well as, "Dr. Phil Primetime." It will be called Merit Street Media. I'll pass, thanks. That said, if you want to watch Dr. Phil's new channel I won't judge you because I enjoy all kinds of trashy stuff. My only defense is as I said, my stuff knows it is junk and doesn't try to act like it is doing me a favor. Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for the channel to launch in February 2024 so that you know where to tune in or avoid.
