Dr. Phil Announces Partnership with TBN to ‘Fight’ for ‘Soul’ of America

By Movieguide® Contributor

Dr. Phil McGraw has decided to use his talents in a new partnership with Trinity Broadcasting Network to launch a new TV network.

“I’m coming back in primetime on a whole new network that’s called Merit Street Media,” Dr. Phil said in a statement. “It’s my new network, but I’ve got some news that I want to share with you about that. This is actually not my network. This is our network. This is something that’s going to be focused entirely on what’s important to you. What you want to talk about, what you want to do, and Dr. Phil is going to be on in primetime.”

“I absolutely love talking to real people about real problems — people who aren’t just complaining but are actively looking for real solutions to better their lives,” he added. “American families and our core values are under attack. I love this country, and I believe family is the backbone of our society. Together we are going to stand strong and fight for the very soul and sanity of America and get things that matter back on track.”

According to Variety, “The daytime-TV legend, who announced a month ago that he planned to debut a TV network with a new primetime show that he would lead, is teaming up with Trinity Broadcasting Network, a large religious broadcaster that is a significant owner of TV stations. McGraw’s company, Merit Street Media, expects to distribute its new lineup of programming via cable, satellite and broadcast stations, and has secured ‘commitments already exceeding 65 million television homes’…Trinity’s programming is available on satellite distributors such as DirecTV and Dish and cable systems owned by Charter and Altice, among others.”

“We are thrilled to embark on this groundbreaking journey by creating a network that is not only widely accessible but also a hub for diverse, engaging content,” Merit Street Media COO Hoel Cheatwood said in a statement. “With our commitment to delivering high-quality programming across multiple platforms, we anticipate Merit Street will be a trailblazer among networks.”

Dr. Phil added, “As always, the audience will dictate our content because they are our content, and I want my viewer’s help in building Merit Street. I continue my pledge to help individuals, couples, and families have the tough conversations, face the hard realities, and get real answers for the most positive and effective outcome.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Dr. Phil:

After 21 seasons, DR. PHIL will come to an end. 

The syndicated talk show, hosted by Dr. Phil McGraw, started airing in 2002. McGraw became a household name after appearing on multiple episodes of THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, DR. PHIL began as the second-highest rated daytime talk show and held on to that spot throughout its 21 seasons.

“I have been blessed with over 25 wonderful years in daytime television,” McGraw said in a statement about the end of the talk show. “With this show, we have helped thousands of guests and millions of viewers through everything from addiction and marriage to mental wellness and raising children. This has been an incredible chapter of my life and career, but while I’m moving on from daytime, there is so much more I wish to do.”
