As rumours of Bruce Jenner's alleged transition from male to female to continue to circulate, it seems everyone has a comment to make about his supposed life choice.

Now it's Dr. Phil's turn to backtrack on his remarks after he received criticism for comments he made whilst appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday (22nd April).

Dr Phil has apologised for tweeting "if a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her?" Although the post was quickly deleted, a petition was created calling for an apology from the talk show doctor.
Dr Phil caused a scandal on Twitter by tweeting "if a girl is drunk, is it OK to have sex with her? Reply yes or no to @drphil." The talk-show doctor tweeted on Tuesday (20th August) but later deleted his post, as reported by the NY Daily News.By discussing such delicate issues in this a blunt way, Dr Phil's tweet has been misconstrued and, unsurprisingly, highly criticised.

A Change.org petition was quickly created requesting that Dr Phil, whose real name is Phil McGraw, apologise for his message. The petition has over 1300 supporters to date. Carmen Rios, who began the petition, stated that Dr Phil's post should not have been posed as a question at all: "there is no question Dr Phil, rape is rape." Rios continued by emphasising that "sexual contact without verbal, sober, conscious consent is rape." Rios called for the 62-year-old psychologist to apologise for his comment and for an episode of his show, regarding rape awareness, hoping such an episode "educates the public about the true definition of rape and sexual assault, as well as how to prevent it."

Dr Phil has responded to the wave of online rage sparked by an earlier tweet.
Dr. Phil, former protégé of Oprah and current daytime TV celebrity in his own right, has landed himself in hot water with a recent tweet. The status, reading: “If a girl is drunk, is it alright to have sex with her? #teensaccused” was posted by a staffer to Dr. Phil’s official account earlier this week. The response was swift and powerful – as it should have been and as one might expect, particularly so soon after the Seubenville case, in which a teenage girl was raped by several football players at a party, while she was intoxicated.
Someone in Dr. Phil's media team was to blame.
Responses varied from the strictly technical “@DrPhil By law when alcohol is a factor, no one can consent. Don't know what's happening to you? It's rape, period. #teensaccused” to the seriously affected: “@DrPhil The answer is No, Never you jackass. And then you kick whoever asked you in the throat. #teensaccused.” Of course, there were also a significant number of twitter users making jokes about the inappropriate question: “Dr Oz was saving lives today and Dr. Phil is trying to hook up with drunk girls where is @oprah she needs to have an emergency team meeting.”

Yesterday (29th Oct. 2012) Anderson Live, the daytime chat show eponymously hosted by Anderson Cooper, was officially cancelled. Ratings for the news anchor's show just never really kicked off. Format changes, including a name change from just 'Anderson' to 'Anderson Live', were clearly not enough to nudge it into nationwide popularity.
Reported in the Chicago Tribute, Cooper said "I am very proud of the work that our terrific staff has put into launching and sustaining our show for two seasons," and added that he looked forward "to doing more great shows this season ... I'm sorry that we won't be continuing." This followed the statement made by WarnerBros, stating "The series will not be coming back for a third season in a marketplace that has become difficult to break through." Anderson Live was competing with mid-day heavyweights such as Ellen Degeneres' 'Ellen', Dr Phil's 'Dr Phil' nor Katie Couric's 'Katie' (all imaginatively titled, as you can see).
It's not the end of the world for Cooper who will still continue hosting his news program 'Anderson 360'. His career history includes international journalism, a lot of which was war reporting, including an award winning report from Sarajevo during the Bosnian war. A lot of his work is referred to in his 2006 memoir Dispatches From the Edge.
Katie Couric seemed to send out a message on her very first afternoon talk show don't expect any heavy lifting this time around. Although she once remarked that her tombstone ought to read "Perky No More," Couric appeared to be as perky as she ever was on the Today show, no longer attempting to affect the gravitas often required of her when she anchored the CBS Evening News . Critics took notice. Verne Gay, Newsday 's TV critic, called Couric's talk show "cheerily and almost cheesily down-market." Gay then asked, "Is Jessica Simpson the biggest 'get' a daytime talk show hosted by a veteran newswoman who once anchored the CBS Evening News can land?" He then answered "Probably -- which makes you wonder, or weep, for the future of this new venture." Virtually every critic remarked that the segment with Simpson looked like an infomercial for Weight Watchers. (It even included an appearance by a Weight Watchers' group leader.) Couric asked not a single question to challenge the diet company's modus operandi. "No one would fault Couric for not asking more probing questions of someone like Simpson," David Wiegand wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle . "Nothing against the singer, but it's not quite like asking Sarah Palin what newspapers she reads every day." But even when it came to interviewing her next guest, Sheryl Crow, who was once married to Lance Armstrong, Couric appeared all sweetness. "Audience members who were waiting for Couric to ask Crow if she believed Armstrong used steroids or not were left disappointed. The question remained unasked," Wiegand observed. David Hinkley in Newsday remarked that Couric "was friendly, gentle and warm. ... She did everything but paint her toenails and serve s'mores. What she didn't do was provide a very lively show, which was perplexing for a first day." But Lisa De Moraes in the Washington Post thought she looked "surprisingly nervous for someone who was the queen of morning infotainment TV for 15 years." Mary McNamara, the TV critic for the Los Angeles Times, noted that at the beginning of the show Couric promised that she would be talking to her guests about things "that mattered." Concluded McNamara "We do want to talk about things that matter, and even in the afternoon, that does not include Jessica Simpson's new diet." On the other hand, Alessandra Stanley in The New York Times suggested that the first show was likely focused on presenting Couric as "Miss Relatability." She noted that a promotional spot for the show "looks like the kind of campaign video that tries to frame Mitt Romney as an average Joe." Initial ratings for the show indicated that the strategy paid off. She scored the highest numbers for a daytime premiere since Dr. Phil debuted in September 2002 and outdrew the new talk shows hosted by Steve Harvey, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake by at least 2-1.
