The Dr. Oz Show
Dr. Mehmet Oz hosts The Dr. Oz Show. Each episode includes portions on health, wellness, and medical information, as well as true crime stories and celebrity interviews when appropriate. Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions/Harpo Studios and OzWorks LLC/Oz Media, in collaboration with Sony Pictures Television, are co-producing the film. The series premiered on 14 September 2009, with Dr. Oz as the host.
During its tenure, The Show has won nine Daytime Emmy Awards, including five for Outstanding Informative Talk Show and four for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host, as well as criticism for some of its content. The show was renewed for seasons 11 and 12 in April 2018 and will air from 2020 to 2021. The Show was renewed in September 2020 for seasons 13 and 14, which would run till 2022–23.
Oz announced his candidacy for the Republican Senate primary in Pennsylvania on November 30, 2021, requiring television broadcasters in Pennsylvania and nearby states, as well as places as far west as Cleveland, Ohio, to pull the show from their schedules due to the equal-time regulation. Because Mehmet owns the doctoroz.com domain, which was converted for his campaign website, the show’s website was also shifted.
The show is expected to complete its run on Friday, 14th of January 2022, and be replaced the following Monday by The Good Dish, a food-themed talk show centered on Mehmet’s cookery segments, according to SPT. His daughter Daphne Oz, as well as Gail Simmons and Jamika Pessoa, will host the new show.
Through her production firm, Harpo Productions, Winfrey proposed to produce a syndicated series with Mehmet in 2009. On 14 September 2009, The Dr. Oz program premiered. In 2010, it was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Informative and Outstanding Talk Show Informative Host, with the latter winning. The shows were taped in Studio 6A at NBC Studios in New York for the first four seasons, but NBC recovered Rockefeller Center for its Late Night franchise, thus they had to leave.
It was taped in the ABC Television Center East on Manhattan’s Upper West Side beginning with season five.
The CBS Broadcast Center’s Studio 42 now hosts the show.
The program was renewed for seasons 11 and 12 by Sony Pictures Television in April 2018, bringing the show’s total run to 2020–21.
In-studio production was halted in March 2020 when a staff member developed “subtle” symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19. Following that, episodes began filming at Oz’s house. The show announced that for its season premiere on September 14, 2020, it would return to studio tapings with a smaller staff and no live audience. The show was renewed for seasons 13 and 14 through 2022–23 in September 2020.
The series is “among the most widely rated daily television programs” in the United States, according to The New Yorker.
It routinely attracts women between the ages of 25 and 54, the major audience for daytime television.
The program averaged a 1.4 Nielsen household rating in live-plus-same-day ratings for the 2016 season.
In 2017, it received a 1.2 Nielsen household rating, while in 2018, it received a 1.1 rating. The program and other comparable medical talk shows have been chastised for airing material that is not backed up by published research over the course of their run. More than half of the advice given on these shows contradicted medical data, according to the British Medical Journal. According to the show’s producers, the series provides viewers with “the most information and the most tools they can use to make their own decisions.”
