Dr. Phil Cancels Britney Special

Since his Britney intervention show didn't quite go as planned, Dr. Phil has canceled the program scheduled for tomorrow.

In a statement, he tells Entertainment Tonight:

"We had planned to tape a Dr. Phil Now show tomorrow, focusing not on the tabloid side of Britney's latest problems, but instead on the very serious issues surrounding this case. Clearly, it is not just Britney's family struggling to find a way to protect adult children who cannot be ordered or compelled to seek help.

"Because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family, I have made the decision not to move forward with the taping at this particular time. Britney and her family are in our prayers and we ask that they be in yours."

Translation: I was getting bad press so I pulled the plug on the show.
