Dr. Drew On Call

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Tonight: Trayvon Martin fact or fiction?

Is what you know about the the Trayvon Martin case the truth, or someone's version of  it? Surely there are things the public does not yet know about what happened that night. Yet, we all have an opinion about the case.

Dr. Drew and guests separate fact from fiction.

Tonight: Mid-life crisis, are you in one? Dr. Drew's got news for you!

Is a mid-life crisis an excuse for men to behave badly? Dr. Drew and his guests have something to say about that! Could biology be to blame? Is it a matter of discipline? What, if anything, can you do about it? If you, or someone you love, is in the throes of a mid-life mess Dr. Drew wants to hear from you!

And we'll talk about paranoia and the role it may have played in the fatal shooting of an unarmed Florida boy by a volunteer security guard.

Tonight: Was bikini model mastermind of international drug ring?

This one's right up Dr. Drew's alley and so is this one:  KONY 2012 founder is hospitalized after bizarre behavior. Why do people do what they do? Can overall stress and the pressures of life cause someone to 'snap'? It's a question you may have asked yourself!

Tonight: Could seizure, blackout cause mom to put baby in microwave?

We've heard unusual defenses before: The Twinkie defense, sleepwalking defense, the PMS defense and so on. Would having a seizure - and then blacking out – account for the alleged actions of a mother who's accused of killing her child in the most heinous way? Dr. Drew and his guests have some thoughts about what is– and isn't– a legitimate medical defense.

Plus, GCB!  The "G" stand for Good. The "C" stands for Christian. And the "B"? Well, you decide. It's a TV show making waves for its over-the-top portrayal of some southern, religious women. Is this offensive? Is it satire? Is it just plain entertainment? Tune in...and watch out!
