Dr. Phil McGraw

America's Superstar Psycologist

How He Got Started

Dr. Phil became interested in a TV talk show after appearing on a show of Oprah. Oprah and Dr. Phil met about sixteen years ago when they were paired together for the mad cow case in Amarillo. At that point of his life, you had never watched a Oprah show. They became great friends after this and she then helped him start his talk show host.

He has a weight loss shake, his son Jay had a knock off show like 'Extreme Homemaker Edition', and he also had a few reality TV shows. Dr. Phil's company has come close to failing a few times with incidents such as lawsuit, false accusations, and publicly humiliating people. He has also done some great things too, such as many charitable foundations. One of his most important charitable foundations was to help end child obesity.
