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.

Dr. Phil also did a show on polygamy before this latest scandal. He had two young women, both named Fawn, on his show about 2 years ago. No, I'm not a real fan but I did watch his show from time to time.

WHEN will people see this jackass for the FAKE that he REALLY is??? So, years ago he was able to scam Oprah, get on her show and go from there....but do the people of Texas and elsewhere NOT EVER READ THE NEWS??? This jerk has been brought up on charges of many kinds, and is NOT the DOCTOR he PRETENDS to be, but typical of the American Public, BELIEVE BEFORE FINDING FACTS....or .... IF OPRAH SAYS SO.......THEN HE HAS TO BE....... Riiiiight! This man is no more qualified for all he claims, than Al Gore can claim inventing the internet. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!! THIS JERK NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE AIRWAVES!!! He helps NO ONE!! Don't compare this idiot with Springer, because Jerry does NOT claim ANY medical status....he just goes for stupid sensationalism. Phil does more damage pretending to be a medical doctor....

This is a follow up to a show he did a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time ago!!!! So if anyone is doing the ripping off it's Fox! Not only are they ripping off this Dr. Phil show they are TOTALLY ripping off Maury!!!! He has been doing these stupid lie detector test's for as long as he has been doing :"YOU ARE NOT the Father!!!!!" OK I know that some people don't like Dr. Phil but come on you have to admit that at least he is "TRYING" to help people!! Maybe it is for ratings but it's better then Telia Taquila, The Flavor of Love..(just to name a couple!" some of the other trash on TV! Why is it that people want SOOOO BAD to take down Dr. Phil? At least he tries to help.

Why that blad headed blowhard still has fans is a mystery. He is certainly no doctor and his advice is quick fix phoney baloney. I got sick of his "how's it working for you"? years ago. Once again the american public has another one of Oprah Winfrey's finds shoved down their throats. I for one do not watch her or any of her show biz finds. I used to think she was somewhat smart but have discovered that all of these brilliant people she backs are simply her yes people. As for the so called good Dr. Phil, he has become worse than Jerry Springer. He preaches about his family and how wonderful they are...his wife sits in on every show looking like something from the "Stepford" wives, nodding in agreement to his every word. He puts his son on to give advice to young people and moralize to them, yet he marries a "Hugh Hefner" porno triplet. Sorry but I find the so called doctor, which by the way he is not!!! completely repugnant. By the way to his fan Dottie, you do recall he was sued over his weight loss supplements and foods? He seeks more and more adulation by putting on shows that belittle and demean people. Grow up and find a real doctor Dottie and all other "Dr. Phil" believers. He is as phoney as his mentor Oprah.

Long, long ago, when Dr. Pill first started appearing on Oprah, he had some brains. He put them to good use,and I found him interesting to watch. Shortly thereafter--just about the time he developed a fan base and hooked himself his own show--he started selling out, doing just about anything to expand the fan base in the name of "caring about people." Then Dr. Pill had to drag Robin into the TV show picture, in this "stand by your man" premise of walking off with the set with him every day (would he have done that with his first wife, who says he cheated on her? Probably not...oh wait, so few even know he HAD a first wife). And THEN, as if that weren't enough, he had to drag "Dr. Pill's my dad, so by osmosis I know what I'm talking about" son into it,and son wrote a book, seeking to become Dr. Pill, Jr. Dr. Pill built his kingdom...and the guy from long ago, that guy from TX who knew what he was talking about with his jury consulting work, who had some intelligence became some blithering blathering idiot from TX who should have known not to sell out..but didn't. Somehow, helping people got sucked out of the equation, and publicity-hogging took its place. Well, done, Dr. Pill. You've become a caricature of your former self, complete with that boobs for brains daughter-in-law in the picture. How's that workin' for ya?

Dr Phil has always used polygrph testing on his show when he is trying to find out the truth.This was happening way before the Fox show.
