In 2002, Dr. Phil was a show that launched thanks to the help of Oprah Winfrey. Today, Dr. Phil has made a name for himself based on his no-nonsense approach to advice, especially regarding family relationships. If anything is clear from watching the show, it's that times have changed.
When the show began, Dr. Phil wasn't focused on the Internet, but many of the stories he shares today are heavily influenced by Internet culture, including catfishing and romance scams. In fact, these are among Phil McGraw's most popular episodes.
