Dr. Phil's Moment of Truth

4/24/2008 11:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's sweeps again in television land and since he can't exploit Britney Spears or a teenage girl accused of being the ringleader of a high school beatdown -- Dr. Phil has turned to ripping off a popular reality show.

TMZ TV exposed how the good doc's using a polygraph, a child molestation victim, and fancy graphics all in the name of ratings.

We're watching the downfall of Dr. Phil in super slow motion...one misstep after another...much like we're watchingTMZ's downfall at the same. Too bad Harvey doesn't recognize that.

He's definitely another Jerry Springer and Oprah is not doing a thing about it - guess that's the direction she wants the show to go in.

I totally agree with #33 Dottie. Dr. Phil is a great guy who has helped countless people and the media has put such a poor spin on everything. By the way, anyone that watches the show knows hes been using polygraph regularly since way before that stupid reality show came out. I think too many people here can't handle his kind of straightforward truth. And if you think about it - mostly what he speaks is just common sense from a different point of view. He's a very intelligent man who happens to hold a Ph.D by the way.

First off how can a TABLOID condemn Dr. Phil for exploition when everything you print or air is exploited some how! (dont get me wrong im a HUGE fan of tmz and dr phil) But at least he DOES try to help the people he exploits and secondly he is not the first to use these questionably methods to gain raiting! Oprah cries raitings go up, montel yells and gets mad and so on they all do it! And thirdly it is not dr phils fault that we live in a socity that loves watching people fall apart on national tv! He is just suppling us with what most of us truly want

Common guys, like you have never exploited anyone, and who is to say he IS exploiting anyone!!! get a friggin grip, you people are the epitomy of expolitation! Dr. Phil does amazing things for many people. Bringing the face of a Child Molester to public T.V. so others wont leave their kids alone with this man , is just one of them!! Back off the Doc!

Ugh    

Um, he has used a lie detector test before, actually quite often. Also, I know that celebrity life is sooooo important and those who (uh hem) report it are invaluable, but Dr. Phil also has an important role of brining light to situations that most people don't want to talk about. Unfortunately things like this happen in families more often than we would like to admit. His show, as dramatic and over the top you may think it is, actuall makes people look out for this behavior and maybe face that it is a reality in their life. Someone sitting on a couch just giving a lecture wouldn't make people do that.

Amazing how you try to totally ruin someone for YOUR ratings.....you know he has a huge following and his
fans will read anything about him. Dr Phil has this type show; why critize him for his popularity??? If you
don't want to see his show, just don't tune in. I personally like Dr Phil and gain a lot of insight into different
situations by listening to him.......

Let's see Oprah said he was a great guy and supported him fully. Now she says Obama is a great guy and supports him fully. WOW maybe we should really not trust Oprahs judgement of people she seems to be wrong a lot. Think before you VOTE!

I thought it was a sad but good show. He was there to bring attention as to why the child was being hyper sexual and was able to control the guest. He is a good man that HAS to keep up the ratings on his show. Just like TMZ and all other shows do. This is bringing awareness to the people about different subjects.
