It debuted on September 8, 2008. The hour-long daytime program is produced by Phil McGraw and his son Jay McGraw and is distributed domestically and globally by CBS Television Distribution. The series is a spin-off of Dr. Phil and is the first talk show to be a third generation talk show spin-off, as Dr. Phil itself spun off The Oprah Winfrey Show.

The study determined that “evidence supported 63%, contradicted 14%, and was not found for 24%” of recommendations made by the panel of doctors, and advised that “the public should be skeptical about recommendations made on medical talk shows.”
