“Dr. Phil” is coming to an end after the current season, which will conclude this spring.  The show debuted in 2002, after Dr. Phil got his start on “Oprah” in the ’90s.

Phil says, quote, “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.”

(Of course, he neglected to mention his biggest accomplishment:  Making the “Cash Me Ousside” girl a multi-multi-multimillionaire.  Dr. Phil McGraw:  Rewarding good behavior since 2002!)

He added, quote, “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.”
