Dr. Phil Primetime and MERIT STREET MEDIA™ 


Dear Dr. Phil Viewers, Fans, and Followers, 

I am thrilled to share exciting news about a significant project that my team and I have been diligently working on since our last live daytime taping this past spring. I can only hope that you share my enthusiasm as I am delighted to announce that I will soon be returning to the airwaves with an all-new series of original episodes, airing nightly in prime time on our very own network, MERIT STREET MEDIA. "Dr. Phil Primetime" is set to premiere on Monday, February 26th, 2024, and will air every evening at 8 PM Eastern Time. The name of our new network, Merit Street Media, holds a special significance. I chose "Merit" to honor the meritocracy upon which our amazing country was built, and "Street" to represent "Main Street" America. We are now headquartered in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, where a brand-new, state-of-the-art broadcast center, spanning over 5 acres, is near completion. Many dedicated "Dr. Phil" team members have made the transition with me, relocating their families to Texas, so we can continue working together, alongside all of you at home. 

"Dr. Phil Primetime" will maintain the format that I have always embraced. I will work to provide common-sense advice to our guests based on evidence-based research, science, tried and proven methods—you know facts! Remember those things; practical information that you can use in your everyday life. Let me be clear; this is not just my show; it's our show. This is not just my network; it's our network. I renew my commitment to you that I am dedicating my platform to what you want and need to see and hear. Nothing is off limits. If it matters to you, it matters to us. 

I am eager to address the issues that are important to you, from navigating the challenges of raising a family in a world that sometimes appears to have lost its way or at least be listening to people making things up as they go along! We will also be addressing the influence of toxic social media platforms on our children and tackling the epidemic of prescription drug addiction. We will also explore concerns about an education curriculum that, for too many, feels like it's failing and, for some, seems more like indoctrination, just to name a few. 

If it's a social issue at the heart of our nation's most vital conversations, we will approach it from a psychological and social perspective. This is all about real people, not political rhetoric. You've told me that you get enough of that from others. Additionally, I will continue to conduct hard-hitting interviews with headline newsmakers. We will also have a news department that will present the facts and allow you to form your own opinions—a novel concept, indeed! 

I want you to be part of the show, part of defining this network. I want you to join us in the studio audience and actively participate. Robin says, "Hey, everyone! Come see us! Texas is just a short flight away from anywhere in the country, and we're only 15 minutes from DFW Airport." Let's work together to make MERIT STREET MEDIA a game-changer. Together, we can shake things up! Stay tuned for more details in the near future. I love you all and can't wait to reconnect!
