Just to Be Close to Dr. Phil

February 10, 2008 9:01 PM

Dr. PhilDr. Phil McGraw taped the 1,000th episode of his syndicated strip “Dr. Phil” on Jan. 25 and celebrated the achievement afterward at a party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin, surprised him with a wee giftie: no less than a private serenade by Lionel Richie. Also on hand at the to-do were sons Jay (who is executive producing the new syndicated show “The Doctors”) and Jordan; CBS Corp. President-CEO Leslie Moonves and wife Julie Chen; “Dr. Phil” Executive Producer Carla Pennington; CBS Television Distribution executives Terry Wood, Bob Madden and John Nogawski; and the five doctors starring in spinoff “The Doctors,” including Dr. Travis Stork.
