DR. PHIL MCGRAW, HOST OF THE #1 DAYTIME TALK SHOW "DR. PHIL," EXTENDS DEAL THROUGH 2023

LOS ANGELES - Oct. 25, 2018 - Dr. Phil McGraw, host and executive producer of the #1 rated daytime talk show DR. PHIL, has signed a multi-year deal with CBS Television Distribution to continue his eponymous show through 2023, it was announced today by Steve Hackett, President of Sales for CTD.

The new deal adds three years onto his current deal and will take the groundbreaking, most-watched daytime talker DR. PHIL through its 21st season. DR. PHIL has been the #1 daytime talk show on television for the last seven years and is currently in its 17th season.

"Dr. Phil is a titan of daytime television, setting the gold standard delivering clinically sound, common-sense, usable information to millions of homes every day. There has truly never been anyone else like him, and we are thrilled to continue our longtime relationship," Hackett said. "His show continues to resonate with viewers whether he's guiding a family in crisis or a celebrity struggling with a problem. We look forward to celebrating 20 years and beyond with Dr. Phil."

"I am so proud to extend my relationship with CBS and CEO Joe Ianniello, our longtime supporter, and CBS Television Distribution led so passionately by my good friends and consummate pros Paul Franklin and Steve Hackett," said McGraw. "Our success is all about team. Carla Pennington, my unbelievably talented executive producer since day one, leads the most talented and committed team in television, delivering quality, meaningful content every day for so many years. And perhaps the most important team member, my wife, Robin, who has been a part of the show since its inception and is such an invaluable touchstone for me personally."

Over the years, the DR. PHIL show has received 31 Emmy(R) nominations and won five PRISM Awards, for the accurate depiction of drug, alcohol and tobacco abuse and addiction, as well as the MADD Media Award. In October 2015, Dr. McGraw was inducted into the Broadcasting & Cable Hall of Fame, an honor bestowed on the pioneers, visionaries and stars of the electronic arts.

Dr. McGraw is also an executive producer of CBS Television Distribution's Emmy Award-winning daytime talk show THE DOCTORS, which is currently in its 11th season, as well as executive producer of the new syndicated daily talk show FACE THE TRUTH and the daily syndicated newsmagazine DAILYMAILTV, now in its second season. On the scripted side, Dr. McGraw serves as co-creator, executive producer and writer on the major hit CBS primetime drama series BULL, now in its third smash season, which was inspired by his early career as head of the nation's most sophisticated trial science firm. His development deal with CBS Television Studios for Stage 29 Productions, run by CEO Jay McGraw, has several additional scripted projects lined up for CBS including MELANIE and CHAPLAIN. Dr. McGraw is also a prolific author with nine #1 New York Times best-sellers to his name.
