The Good Dish, which took Dr. Oz’s time slots after host Dr. Mehmet Oz left to run for the U.S. Senate, will not get a second season in syndication, according to sources, while NBCUniversal’s Judge Jerry, starring Jerry Springer, will not return for season 4, NBCU confirms.
“What’s for dinner?” is the key question that Sony Pictures Television’s new first-run strip, The Good Dish, aims to answer for audiences as it attempts to fill the gap left by the departed Dr. Oz. Five days a week, hosts Daphne Oz, Top Chef’s Gail Simmons and Food Network’s Jamika Pessoa get together to share recipes, offer tips and interview celebrities. The one-hour show is an expanded version of a weekly segment that has aired during Sony Pictures Television’s Dr. Oz for the past several years.
The long-running daytime syndication series The Dr. Oz Show will come to an end on Jan. 14, 2022, distributor Sony Pictures Television said today. The fate of the show, which had been renewed until 2023, became uncertain after host Mehmet Oz announced his candidacy for Senate in Pennsylvania, with the Fox stations in New York and Philadelphia pulling the program right away. The Dr. Oz Show spinoff, The Good Dish, hosted by Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, Gail Simmons and Jamika Pessoa, has been picked up by station groups across the country that carry The Dr. Oz Show, including Fox, which had been The Dr. Oz Show’s core station group, Hearst, Nexstar, Gray and Sinclair.
Sony Pictures Television is moving ahead with The Good Dish, a new syndicated daytime series from The Dr. Oz Show producers, which is on track for a fall 2020 launch. Hosted by Daphne Oz (MasterChef Junior), Vanessa Williams, Gail Simmons (Top Chef) and Jamika Pessoa (The Next Food Star), The Good Dish spinoff grew out of weekly cooking segments featured on The Dr. Oz Show.
