Dr. Phil is playing doctor on Grandfathered.

Phil McGraw, the tough love TV personality who hosts Dr. Phil, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of the Fox comedy that stars John Stamos as a reforming bachelor who finds out that he’s a father — and grandfather, too. He’s not playing himself, though. When Sara (Paget Brewster) pressures Jimmy (Stamos) into seeing a doctor for the first time in more than 20 years, Dr. Phil enters the picture as Dr. Bateman, a no-nonsense physician who is immune to Jimmy’s charms.

The episode is slated to air in early 2016.

McGraw has appeared as himself on such comedies as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Frasier, and The Bernie Mac Show.
