‘Dr. Oz’ Renewed Through 2018-19 Season

“The Dr. Oz Show” has been renewed through the 2018-19 season. The syndicated series is now set to remain on the air through its 10th season.

The renewal is the result of a deal between distributor Sony Pictures Television and Fox Stations Group, which carries the show in the largest U.S. markets.

“There is an avalanche of health information hitting Americans every day and our show has become a field guide in helping viewers navigate their path to wellness,” said Dr. Mehmet Oz, host of the show since its premiere in 2009. “I am honored to be able to continue our mission to make America healthier and happier.”

Currently in its seventh season, “The Dr. Oz Show” has been a solid performer, averaging a 1.4 Nielsen household rating in live-plus-same day numbers through the week of May 16 — even with its performance through the same week a season prior.

“We are thrilled to continue this relationship with our partners at Fox,” said executive producer Amy Chiaro. “It’s a privilege to be able to spread the message that you have the power to take charge of your health and that step begins at home.”

“The Dr. Oz Show” is carried on Fox-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Houston, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Orlando, Charlotte and Austin.

“The Fox Television Stations Group have been our partners since launch and their commitment and support has been key to the long-term success of The Dr. Oz Show,” said John Weiser, president, U.S. distribution, Sony Pictures Television. “’The Dr. Oz Show’ franchise delivers tremendous multi-platform sales and marketing opportunities for local stations across the country.”
