You probably know most of this, but I bet you didn't know...

 Given the readership of the blog, most of you already know about the various scandals of Dan Ariely. You possibly even know that his book Predictably Irrational is being loosely adapted for a new TV series.

 But where did they get the idea for a crime thriller based on a celebrity psychologist? I can prove this relationship but given the way TV executives' mind work, I'll bet they were at least partially inspired by the long run of the show Bull, which at its peak was pulling in a respectable 15 million viewers. The show was, believe it or not, inspired (again, I suspect, loosely) by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw.

You knew there had to be a connection between Dan and Dr. Phil.
