I like parts of Dr. Phil, but he sometimes drops the ball and I can't stand it. Like when he laughs and makes light of serious issues. And when he defends certain people who are obviously crazy and claims the other party is violent or crazy. I don't care for that.
Have you seen his recent commercial? It's rather shocking. He's driving recklessly in a car while he doesn't look where he's driving. Why do companies' think it's cool to advertise with violence and danger? Big turnoff, IMO.
