Getting Ratings By Being Holier Than Thou


Dr. Phil Kicks "Bumfight" Producer Off The Show
This is so weird - it happened a few days ago. Dr. Phil has some guy on his show who produces "Bumfights" - videos of homeless people doing violent acts for money. Dr. Phil starts the show with a pre-packaged video segment of excerpts from the videos then, after the thing is clearly about over, dramatically says "Stop the tape." Then, it gets stranger. The young producer of "Bumfights" is sitting on stage dressed as Dr. Phil - complete with a bald head. Then Dr. Phil kicks the guy off stage because "I don't want to talk to you." Then Dr. Phil turns to the audience and says, "I'm sorry. I just watched that footage and it is despicable and I refuse to publicize it." What? This show isn't live is it? Didn't he make a decision to publicize it by airing it?

Looked staged to me. I think the guy knew what was coming, because he was ready for his come back lines. Dr. Phil is becoming another Jerry Springer.

Hmmmm....
First "Dr. Phil" CLAIMS to believe people NEED to see the video then CLAIMS the content is too despicable to DISCUSS only AFTER he has shown the video. "Dr. Phil" decides days after the taping of the incident to PUBLICLY air the episode.
Hmmmm.... Appears as though "Dr. Phil" is the one who NEEDS to straighten out HIS priorities.

From his attire parodying "Dr. Phil" it is clear that Tye Beeson was intending to show that "Dr. Phil" does indeed use troubled people to FURTHER the career and FATTEN the bank account of "Dr. Phil".

I have NEVER approved of the tactics used by "Dr. Phil" on television. However, the company he co-founded, Courtroom Sciences Inc. (CSI) is FABULOUS.

It's all a bunch of B.S. Just like the Paulie Shore incident. Dr. Phil is a fake who needs his ass kicked. I agree with the above comments that it is too strange of an occurance and any viewer who believes that was real is seriously lacking in the IQ department.

Does anyone bother reading MzChief's boring, over-emphasized babbling? Anyone? I didn't think so.

I agree with 10:08 - it was likely staged. Talk show folks will do ANYTHING to get attention.

Hey, it got Barry's too.

Hey is Mzchief a shrink?

I hate Dr. Phil because he double dips, drinks milk from the carton, and wear white after Labor Day.

I also heard he puts beans in his chili.

He has also been known to eat his whole meal with his salad fork!

12:36, 12:46, 2:07 - Good job dipshits. The entire content of your comments was dedicated to Mzchief. You dumbshits have real issues and I for one am sick and tired of y'all being fuckwits.

Mzchief - Keep up the good work darlin' and maybe you can drive the dumbasses away or at least get them to shut the hell up.

Oh yeah, Dr. Phil sucks.

This clip proves that Dr. Phil is completely retarded. All he did by having this guy on the show was give him exactly what he wanted. EXPOSURE!!! The guy got free advertising. I'll be the appearance on Dr. Phil helps his video sales much more than it hinders it.
