Since September 8, 2008, Dr. Phil has been broadcast in HDTV with a revamped look and a new theme written and performed by [=McGraw=]'s son, Jordan. He also produces another show with Jordan, ''The Doctors'', a medical talk show [[DuelingShows competing with]] TheDoctorOzShow. As with ''Oprah'', both shows are contracted so that they can't air at the same time if on different networks.

** One such example is Danielle, a 13-year-old guest who appeared in the September 2016 episode "I'm Done with My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old". Danielle differs from many of the out-of-control teenagers who have appeared on ''Dr. Phil'' in her mannerisms, acting similarly to the out-of-control teens who have appeared on ''Series/{{Maury}}'' (dressing provocatively, talking in a "street" accent, excessive smack-talk to the extent of cursing at her mom and grandmother on-stage). Among other thing, she has assaulted her mother, Barbara Ann, in the breast despite her having had breast cancer twice, has stolen cars (even absconding with $3 and car keys of a show make-up artist who was present during filming at their family's home, who expressed that she felt violated by being robbed by Danielle), has recreationally taken Xanax and smoked marijuana, stolen her mother's credit cards with balances totaling $6,000 (even buying a stripper pole at one point), threatened her mother with knives, was accused of framing Barbara Ann on a drug possession charge and even taunted her mother one time after coming home after stealing her mom's car by twerking in front of her face[[note]]For obvious reasons, Danielle's backside is blurred in the video of said incident shown, since she was wearing only a thong on that area of her body at the time it was recorded[[/note]]. It doesn't help matters that her mother, Barbara Ann, often reacts to Danielle's similar threats by engaging in verbal altercations and physically threatening her. Dr. Phil points out that she's [[NotSoAboveItAll not as "street smart" as she lets on, as Danielle single-handedly admitted on-camera to premeditated grand theft auto, leaving the scene of an accident after crashing the make-up artist's car, theft and even implicating a friend in the possession of stolen goods, and surmises that Danielle puts up a tough veneer because she's been hurt many time in life. To get Danielle to go the rehab ranch they plan to send her to, Dr. Phil gives her a choice: either go to the ranch or the make-up artist will file charges against her for the crimes she committed during the week of the video shoot. She ultimately does go, but briefly puts up a fight backstage before she decides to head to the ranch.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: Occurs often, even when a guest is confronted with hard evidence of horrible things they've done. For instance, one recent guest continually justified her abuse of her daughter with, "Well, you're exaggerating/I already apologized/that's not true." Dr. Phil did ''not'' appreciate it.

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: At least twice. As per the norm, they were extreme versions of the trope.

* BrattyTeenageDaughter: At least twice. As per the norm, they were extreme versions of the trope. The show has had other out-of-control teens exhibiting some but not all of the extreme aspects of the trope.

* TheUnfavorite: This sometimes happens in episodes featuring broken families. Often, one child will be labeled as out of control or destructive, even "a devil." While the minor in question does have serious behavior issues, it's often the case that the parents favor siblings over that minor. Skylar is one example from Season 16; she had uploaded a profile to a sugar baby website, gotten three DUIs, and been in a boatload of other trouble while her twin sister Shaylen was an honor student with a good reputation. Yet her parents felt it was okay to constantly belittle Skylar, invade her privacy, and ridicule her attempts at getting treatment.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Quite often. Even in cases where the kid is the one out of control, Dr. Phil often uncovers some form of abuse going on that either caused the problems or exacerbate them.


Added DiffLines:

* DomesticAbuse: Occurs as much if not more than AbusiveParents. One November 2015 episode featured a husband who repeatedly spanked his wife with a wooden spoon out of the belief his religion condoned it. While the abused party is often the woman, Dr. Phil has interviewed abused males, and couples where it goes both ways.
