‘Dr. Phil’ show fires 25 staffers ahead of new season

Long time daytime talk show Dr. Phil has fired 25 staffers as the production heads into their 21st season on CBS, The New York Post is reporting. The news was first reported by Variety.

Dr. Phil claims the firing was done to ensure “longevity” for the show. The staffers who were let go worked in the production department for the the show.

“As is typical of this process there were some roles we discovered that we could reduce yet still deliver our dynamic, forward-thinking program,” the spokesperson said in a statement to The Post.

Last year there were allegations made about the show having a toxic work environment.

“I would literally be working in my sleep and have nightmares about something being wrong or not turning in something the right way,” the former employee said. “Even when I quit, I had to go to therapy for it, which is crazy because you’re working for a therapist.”

Dr. Phil McGraw was not implicated in the allegations made against the show.
