I love the "Dog and Pony " show at the end as she prances alongside. I also get a large laugh when he utters the "magic words", in a sepulchral voice, "I want to help you". I call him Dr. Pill. So, in other word, I use portions of this show on rare occasion for as laugh or two.

I'm with you. Give me a PBS informative program anytime over these.

It's hard to even see much of a show, there's more commercials than show..just for fun..time it! I don't watch him for years for that reason..I hate commercials! But also, he seems to make one out of people, rather than actually help them.

I too used to watch him. But haven't for a very long time 'cause his guests/situations are sooooo depressing! Why sit & watch & listen to people with such crazy problems?!!! We need to hear about good stories….,.
I like Dr Oz, altho he does talk sooo fast.. but he does have some very interesting & helpful hints.. Usually watch Queen Latisia & Katie.

I just can't get over the people through all these years who have aired their dirty laundry. The show itself has become one big infomercial. I usually only have the tv on for background noise. My fur babies like to watch animal planet. I do like to watch the Drs. if it isn't a repeat then I may watch. When they start the Robin informercial, I switch to something else. Like I said it's mostly background noise.

Seems lately the show is all about the same kind of problems. Infidelity, abuse, etc. I used to enjoy the show when they would go in depth with a family and it's problems. Also I would like to see a follow up after the guests have completed their counseling (anger management, etc). If I want to watch the theatrics and grief, I can watch Jerry Springer.

I totally agree with Tartan on this one. I haven't watched it in quite some time as I found it started to become like the Jerry Springer show (without the fist fights, at least so far). I think if he truly wants to help people than he should stick with a private practise & not put these poor people (even though they agree to it) on display for the world to watch their pain. IMHO
