Two weeks after Dr. Oz (real name: Mehmet Oz) announced his bid for Pennsylvania’s open Senate seat, it’s been announced that his eponymous show will end in January 2022. The Dr. Oz Show is in its 13th season and had already been renewed for a 14th; its final airdate will be Jan. 14. Oz announced he is running for the open Senate seat as a Republican.
Oz’s show will be replaced by a spin-off cooking show called The Good Dish, featuring his daughter Daphne Oz and co-hosts Gail Simmons (Top Chef) and Jamika Pessoa (Next Food Star). The new show started out as a weekly segment on The Dr. Oz Show.
Dr. Oz Show executive producer Amy Chiaro and co-executive producer Stacy Rader will be helming The Good Dish. They said in a statement: “There is no better time for a show like The Good Dish. Daphne, Gail and Jamika know how to make food accessible with the ability to seamlessly deliver home, lifestyle and trending content. These incredible women will make you laugh, enjoy cooking again and make your life just a little easier. It’s the most fun you can have in the kitchen without having to do the dishes.”
