Dr Phil to appear on 'Frasier'

CALIFORNIA: Dr Phillip C McGraw, known to millions the world over as Dr Phil, the host of the hugely popular daily, syndicated series of the same name, is making his acting debut on Paramount Network Television's hit comedy series Frasier in March. Phil's guest appearance is scheduled to air during May sweeps on NBC-TV.

In India Frasier airs on Star World Monday - Friday at 8:30 pm . Dr. Phil also puts in appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show which airs weekday mornings on the channel. On Frasier Dr. Phil, who plays himself, comes to Seattle for a symposium on life planning and runs into his old friend Dr Frasier Crane (multiple Emmy Award-winner Kelsey Grammer). Envious of Dr Phil's professional accomplishments, Frasier begins to wonder who is credited for Dr Phil's success and finds out that his former agent Bebe Glazer (Harriet Harris) is in part responsible. Wanting the success Dr. Phil has attained, Frasier contemplates re-hiring Bebe.

The syndicated series Dr.Phil, created by Harpo Productions, produced by Paramount Domestic Television and distributed by King World Productions, is seen on 185 stations representing 97 per cent of the US and debuted in September 2002 to the strongest numbers for a talk series since The Oprah Winfrey Show launched in 1986. According to a NSS Ranking Report since its debut, the series has rated second only to The Oprah Winfrey Show in the talk show category, and consistently ranks among the Top Ten of all syndicated strips. .

Frasier has received a record-breaking five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series, and has made history by amassing more Emmys than any other show in television history. Series star Kelsey Grammer has won three Emmy Awards and has received twelve nominations to date for his portrayal of the same character on three different shows (Cheers, Wings and Frasier).
