“Dr. Phil” will end after years of scandals. The nearly 20-year-old show has been criticised and controversial.
The show has been commended for helping addicts and mental health patients, but it has also been accused of exploiting guests for ratings and creating a poisonous environment.

In 2008, guest Stacy Kaiser caused a major scandal on the show. Dr. Phil revealed Kaiser’s sexual involvement with a teenage boy while teaching.

Kaiser sued the show for defamation, alleging false accusations. The matter was settled out of court, but it raised doubts about the show’s journalistic ethics and responsible reporting.

Duvall’s 2016 appearance caused more controversy. Duvall, widely recognised for her part in “The Shining,” was suffering from mental illness when she appeared.

Dr. Phil was condemned for exploiting Duvall’s weakness and promoting mental illness stigmas.

Dr. Phil has become famous despite these and other scandals. But, ending the show after nearly 20 years shows that the scandals may have caught up with it.

It also concerns the sustainability of daytime talk shows in an era of growing scepticism about reality TV and spectacular programming.
After years of scandals, “Dr. Phil” was cancelled, highlighting the difficulties of talk shows that draw viewers with controversial guests and exciting storylines.

The show has helped many people, but critics say it exploits vulnerable guests and perpetuates mental illness stigmas. The show’s discontinuation raises crucial questions about daytime television’s future and producers and hosts’ ethical and responsible programming.
