Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

Now, I don't know where "Dr." Phil received his education, but all of his advice he gives his wayward guests sounds suspicious to me. However, he is one of Oprah's minions, so his credentials do not matter since he has that "in"!
I can't even bring myself to watch his show for the trainwreck factor, he is that grating.
He has only one mantra that he repeats, however, that I find myself nodding along to: "children should NOT be born with a JOB!", he twangs to clueless parents. 

Yes, Dr. Phil. You are right about ONE thing, anyway. But like I said: even a clock as broken as you is right twice a day!

Look at this man. Would you turn to him for weight loss advice? Didn't think so. 

If you're seeking trainwrecks, stick with Maury. Dr. Phil will just make you roll your eyes or see red.

Ha Ha :-) the title of this review is brilliant.

As a former psychology student, I can't say that I dig Dr. Phil. In fact, in several of my psych classes, we discussed how unethical some of his practices are and how he doesn't always give the best feedback and advice. With the way he's running things, he's really more of a businessman than a psychologists.

Yes, I too will stick with Maury for the trainwrecks.  At least Maury seems like he tries to understand and empathizes with his guests.

His mouth says one thing, his moustache says another. ;)
