CBS Television Distribution has renewed the show with Phil McGraw until the 2016-17 season.
“To have a talk show on the air for 15 years is a huge accomplishment,” said CBS Television Distribution sales president Joe DiSalvo. “Stations have really sat up and taken notice of the fact that Dr. Phil is the best news lead-in in the marketplace today. Recognising that value, Dr. Phil has gotten some nice upgrades during the renewal process. We’re thrilled to continue to be in business with Dr. Phil for years to come.”
“I’m excited to continue my dynamic partnership with Leslie Moonves and my CBS family,” McGraw said. “We’ve certainly got the best O&O group in the business. My staff and I have never been more passionate about the work that we are doing at the Dr. Phil show, and we take very seriously the faith and confidence that our viewers continue to show by bringing us into their homes each day. This renewal gives us the endorsement to continue to do the work we do, telling compelling stories for years to come.”
Dr. Phil was created by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and has been the No. 1 daytime talk show since The Oprah Winfrey Show ended its historic run in 2011.
It airs in Australia on TEN.
