Los Angeles, CA- Finally, after 11 years of bringing his daily comprehensive forum for mental health issues into the living rooms of millions of Americans, Dr. Phil McGraw is strapping on his skates and taking his no nonsense brand of straight shooting tough love to the ice.
"I think we all new that this was the direction this was heading," McGraw explains while stretching a tight hamstring after completing a perfectly executed double axel-double toe loop jump combination. "I've exhausted the medium of television as a means of making complex psychology both accessible and understandable for regular folks. You don't need a pack of wild horses to learn how to make a sandwich!"
Following in the footsteps of Sally Jessie Raphael and Ricky Lake, former talk show giants who exchanged a television studio for a chance to make a real connection with people while touring with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey travelling circus, Dr. Phil will be tackling such diverse topics as bullying, drug abuse, domestic violence, child abuse, suicide and a various forms of severe mental illness via the majesty of ice dancing. McGraw reveals, "Sometimes you have to make the right decision, and sometimes you have to make the decision right."
