A syndicated show that has been called the most successful daytime talk show to launch in the past 10 years received a pickup that will keep the program on the air through the 2018-2019 season.
TVNewsCheck reports that Sony Pictures Television, which distributes the show, reached an agreement with the Fox Television Stations to continue airing “The Dr. Oz Show” through its 10th season.
The health-and-fitness show, which stars Dr. Mehmet Oz, premiered in fall 2009 and recently wrapped its seventh season.
John Weiser, president of U.S distribution for Sony Pictures Television, commented in today’s announcement: “The Fox Television Stations group has been our partners since launch and their commitment and support has been key to the long-term success of ‘The Dr. Oz Show.'”
TVNewsCheck notes: “Sony said the show experienced the greatest household growth of any talk show, posting double-digit increases on many of the Fox stations, including flagship WNYW in New York, where it is up 75% year-to-year in households and 28% sweep-to-sweep among women 25-54.”
