If you’re a fan of "The Dr. Phil Show," have we got the cure for you. You can get free tickets to attend the show in person and be a member of the live studio audience in Hollywood.

Getting tickets for "The Dr. Phil Show" may be the most difficult of all the popular talk shows. This is because it's a very popular show which is often booked up right away. Also, they open up tickets for only a few weeks at a time.

If you really want to see Dr. Phil in person, you need to plan ahead and request your tickets shortly after they make the announcements. However, your efforts will pay off because you get to be in the audience for two back-to-back shows at the same time!

How to Get Free Tickets to "The Dr. Phil Show"

It's very easy to make a reservation for free tickets to "The Dr. Phil Show." You can request up to four tickets online or on the phone and an audience coordinator will be in touch to confirm your tickets. 

As with the majority of talk shows, a ticket does not guarantee that you get to sit in the audience. They often offer more tickets than seats to ensure the audience is always full. Admission is first-come, first served, so be sure to show up early.

  • Order online at Dr. Phil’s audience page.
  • Call the 24-hour reservation line at 323-461-7445. Leave your name, day and evening phone numbers, and the number of guests attending (up to four).
