“The Dr. Oz Show’, a staple in daytime syndication since 2009, has been taken off the air in the Fox-affiliated stations in New York (WNYW) and Philadelphia (WTXF) following Memhet Oz’s announcement that he would be running for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania. “Dr. Oz” will be replaced with talker “The Real” on WNYW, while WTXF will replace it with “The Good Dish”, a spinoff from “Dr. Oz” hosted by Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz.
Last fall, the Fox TV Stations renewed “Dr. Oz” for two more seasons, taking the strip into 2023. It is produced by Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and distributed by Sony Pictures Television, and the future of the talker is now a question mark given Dr. Oz’s surprise political aspirations.
