‘Dr. Phil Show’ Episode Guide (April 16): Robin McGraw’s Revelation Skin Care Line; Ronnie Dunn

The following is a synopsis of today’s all-new episode of CBS Television Distribution’s “Dr. Phil Show.” To watch, be sure to check local listings for the time period in your market.

Pat says her daughter-in-law, Cara, is a “vindictive bitch” who has brainwashed her son, Todd, against her and imposed “stupid” rules about how and when she’s allowed to be a part of their lives. Cara says Pat refuses to respect boundaries and often undermines their parenting choices when she cares for their children — and that’s why she hasn’t been allowed to see her grandchildren in three weeks.

Todd admits he grew up a “mama’s boy” but says it’s time for his mother to respect his wife’s wishes and accept that he has his own family now. Todd and Cara face off with Pat. Can Dr. Phil broker a peace between these warring in-laws? Then, Lindsie, 31, says that since having her two children, her libido has gone downhill — and she has absolutely no interest in being intimate with her husband, Charles.

He insists that he has tried everything to romance Lindsie but says she still treats sex like a chore, telling him to “just get it over with.” Dr. Phil enlists the help of clinical sexologist Alessandra Rampolla to get to the root of the couple’s sexual disconnect. How can Charles and Lindsie reignite the spark? Dr. Phil has a big surprise for the couple!

Plus, Robin McGraw introduces her new Revelation skin care line. Robin’s new purpose-driven skin care line is an easy-to-follow, three-step regimen for creating radiant, younger-looking skin complexion. And, don’t miss an unforgettable performance by country music star Ronnie Dunn, from his second solo album, “Peace, Love and Country Music.”

Originally launched in the fall of 2002 to the highest ratings of any new syndicated show since the launch of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” 16 years prior, “Dr. Phil” is enjoyed by millions of viewers nationally in 212 markets, covering 100 percent of the country.Additionally, “Dr. Phil” is licensed to nearly 50 territories and countries worldwide.

McGraw’s success stems from his signature “get real” approach to helping his guests solve their problems, stripping through their emotional clutter, helping them to get down to the bare bones of their issues and giving them the challenge they need to move ahead. McGraw champions those who suffer from such silent epidemics as domestic violence, child abuse, depression, racism, substance abuse and other health issues that are prevalent in society, but go largely undiscussed by their victims.

While McGraw will continue with the topics and themes that have made the show number one, he will introduce some tech new features to the show.This season, a select group of viewers will be able to watch the show’s taping and contribute with real-time tweets, instant comments and even talk-back with the host.

Emmy-Award winning Executive Producer Carla Pennington has been with “Dr. Phil” since its first season, as has Co-Executive Producer Angie Kraus. “Dr. Phil” was created by Harpo Productions, is produced by Peteski Productions in association with CBS Television Distribution and is distributed by CBS Television Distribution, a unit of CBS Corp.
