Howard Stern vs. Mean Green: Round 1

Pay radio kingpin Howard Stern regularly belittles made-for-TV shrink Dr. Phil McGraw.

He did so again Thursday on CBS' Late Show with David Letterman, but also added a blast at McGraw's alma mater, the University of North Texas in Denton.

"University of North Texas. You need, I think, a driver's license to get in there," he said.

The Spears family supposedly is irate with McGraw for publicizing his visit with hospitalized Britney Spears. At least that's what Lou Taylor, business manager for parents Lynne and Jamie Spears, told NBC's Today earlier this week. But subsequent reports say the family in fact is not upset with McGraw.

Whatever the truth, Stern can't stand the thought or the sight of Dr. Phil, whose doctoral thesis at UNT was on rheumatoid arthritis, he told Letterman.

"I think we're going to be done with this Dr. Phil once and for all," Stern said. "They're going to lock him up and put him in a straitjacket. I mean, who is this guy?"

For the record, McGraw has a B.A. from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, and an M.A. in experimental psychology and doctorate in clinical psychology from UNT.

Stern has a B.A. from Boston University, where peeing in a cup gets you a four-year scholarship. Anyway, here's the clip:
