Robin McGraw[edit]

Hello,

I think Robin is notable enough (Robin McGraw Revelation, Aspire Initiative, etc.) to have her own page. She is technically known as an author/cosmetics designer and her notability is based on her Cosmetics Design career for Revelation (with her foundation, Aspire Initiative, her best selling books, and her works with Dr. Phil only as side jobs).

What do you guys think?

Sincerely,

Sounds like a good idea to me, exporting info on her to a new page would help de-clutter the article too. Ranze (talk) 18:40, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

2009 Sara Morrison accusations[edit]

Several reliable sources reported this issue:

"Dr. Phil accused of sexual assault". LA Times. 5 August 2009. 
""DR. PHIL SEXUALLY ABUSED ME!"". National Enquirer. 5 August 2009. Archived from the original on 13 March 2012. 
"Dr. Phil Accused Of Sexual Abuse!!!". Perezhilton.com. 6 August 2009. Archived from the original on 30 July 2013. 

Later negative coverage a couple weeks later by someone with same name but not sure if it's the same woman:

Morrison, Sara (21 August 2013). "Dr. Phil Responds to Drunk Sex Tweet Backlash: It Was for a Show". TheWrap. 

I'm thinking possibly different because pics I've seen on Twitter of journalist look much younger than the woman who was 44 in 2009 (would be 51 now I think) so it might just be a strange coincidence.

Basically I see no mention of this at all in the article and I'm wondering why we don't include mention of the accusations when the Enquirer and LA Times both considered it notable enough to report on.

There also appear to be several People Magazine articles about other legal battles he's been in that got a lot of media exposure:

"Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Natalee Holloway Case". 14 December 2006. Deepak, 22, and Satish, 19, brought a defamation suit against Dr. Phil 
"Dr. Phil Slapped with Bizarre Brainwashing Lawsuit". 8 October 2009. Shirley Rae Dieu, 56, of Irvine, Calif., claims she was seeking therapy from Dr. Phil in his Hollywood office in 2007 when she allegedly was held captive 

I'm not sure what the end result of these 3 cases was but they all seem to have gotten enough exposure to report on the event of the accusations happening. Doing so does not lend them credibility or anything. Ranze (talk) 18:49, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 4 June 2016[edit]

These two links don't work:

Dallas Observer article details much of Dr. Phil's life, including many critical views. Scholarly article in which authors claim that the narrative arc of Dr. Phil's show is comparable to the religious conversion story

Yes check.svg Done. Have updated links. Cannolis (talk) 22:48, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

"During McGraw's childhood, his family moved so his father could pursue a lifelong goal of becoming a psychologist."

This sentence does not make sense. What does the moving of his family have to do with his father's pursuit of becoming a psychologist?

Bull TV Show, semi auto biographical story of a Young Dr. Phil

CBS has ordered a TV show pilot for Bull. The drama is based on the early years of Dr. Phil McGraw‘s career as a trial consultant.

Homicide creator Paul Attanasio is writing with McGraw. Jay McGraw, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank will executive produce.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

   Paul Attanasio (House, Showtime‘s failed The Vatican pilot) will pen the script with McGraw. The duo also will executive produce alongside McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions and the talk-show host’s son, Jay McGraw, as well as Amblin Television’s Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
   The McGraw pilot expands his relationship with CBS. He renewed his talk-show deal with CBS Television Distribution for an additional three years back in the fall, taking it through at least 2020. Dr. Phil has been the No. 1 daytime talk show since Oprah Winfrey‘s retirement.
