All at once I cannot get Dr. Phil either on CBS /DISH. What has happened? Must we now watch it on Roku?

Iwatch Dr Phil everyday and now suddenly it is not showing up on CBS out of Fort Wayne Indiana. Why is he been taken off
the air in this area? it’s really aggravating to not be able to find him anywhere on any station and yet he is contracted through 2016 and 2017.


Ellyn Renken March 20, 2015 at 1:29 pm

It seems to be nation-wide. Did you get him on DISH as I did? I have Roku so can watch older episodes off of there.

I’m aggrevated!

I’d check with your local station. They either moved it to another timeslot or stopped carrying it.
