Dr. Phil Season 20

Dr. Phil is an American talk show created by Oprah Winfrey and the host Phil McGraw. McGraw's advice and methods have drawn criticism from psychotherapists as well as from laypersons. McGraw said in a 2001 South Florida newspaper interview that he never liked traditional one-on-one counseling, and that "I am not the Hush-Puppies, pipe and 'Let's talk about your mother' kind of psychologist." In 2004, the National Alliance on Mental Illness called McGraw's conduct in one episode of his television show "unethical" and "incredibly irresponsible". McGraw's critics regard advice given by him to be at best simplistic, and at worst, ineffective.

American Idol

American Idol was based on the British show Pop Idol created by Simon Fuller, which was in turn inspired by the New Zealand television singing competition Popstars.

Country music star Luke Bryan, music icon Lionel Richie and singer-songwriter Katy Perry return as judges, with famed multimedia personality Bobby Bones acting as the show's in-house mentor. The fun begins with the audition rounds, in which hopefuls from across the country try to wow the judges, who select the most impressive talent from each city. As the competition advances, it's up to the viewers at home to vote for their favorite vocalists in hopes of helping them make it to the next round. In the end, one singer wins the grand prize and is crowned the next "American Idol."
