On a recent Christmas themed episode of Dr. Phil, America's favorite tough-love shrink, the show featured the Nintendo Wii. Dr. Phil plays Wii Sports tennis with a guy (his son?) in a Castlevania looking ballroom/television room. Sadly (or happily), we don't watch the Dr. Phil around these parts, but we're guessing that promoting the system had something to do with either exercise or child abuse, because that's what his shows are usually about. After the segment Dr. Phil gives everyone in the audience a Wii -- on cue they go nuts. Still wondering how the blind kid from Ellen is doing with his Wii?
