Everyone enjoys the challenge of Jeopardy because the things they ask about that you phrase in a question challenge or test your knowledge. This is fun and I love fun. Then there is Dr. Phil with his expert hold on his audience that can generate cheers for himself anytime he pushes the button.
To me, Dr. Phil is a self-serving shrill for his books, his son’s publishing company and his wife Robin’s cosmetic company, all subsidized by Dr. Phil. The bad taste that is left in one's mouth by the overt selling of Robin’s cosmetics at the last ten or fifteen minutes of the show s she tries to leave an impression that she is some kind of cosmetologist.
I don’t put on the Dr. Phil show, I rather watch Ellen Degeneres than Dr. Phil and Steve Harvey in Family Feud than listen to Trebek come off like he isn’t.
