A television psychiatrist who gained fame through Oprah Winfrey's talkshow. Beloved by many older women, his show is a mild version of rowdy day-time talk shows such as "Jerry Springer" and "Maury", although it advertises itself as a serious attempt at televising psychatric advice.
He is known for his southern accent and somewhat rude approach to offering advice, sometimes publicly belittling his guests for their inability to grasp his suggestions on self-help.
The majority of guests on the show are highly dysfunctional, and often mildly idiotic.
"When Dr.Phil is on, I'm usually elsewhere, doing something that doesn't involve rating-mongering talk shows."
