Looks as though Kirk Fox has passed Dr. Phil’s tests.

Phil and Jay McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions (which puts out other daytime TV fare such as The Doctors) has announced plans for Fox to host The Test, a one-hour talk show syndicated throughout America on Tribune stations and others through CBS Television Distribution.

Each hour, Fox will preside over and resolve disputes via DNA results and lie detector tests — effectively “yes, and”-ing Maury Povich at his own game. So, not just who’s the father, but all sorts of relationship conflicts between couples and friends.

Fox already has appeared multiple times on Dr. Phil.

One time he tricked a woman into thinking he was wheelchair-bound so Dr. Phil could show her how she treats people.

And in this playful clip, Dr. Phil uses Fox to show his own discomfort at the practice of women waxing their body hair.

Roll it!

Note: At the end of 2012, Fox was seen out and about performing with shorter hair — and without his trademark mustache — making him look more like David Copperfield. Magic!
