The renewal will keep the Oprah Winfrey-created Dr. Oz — now in its seventh season — on the air across the country in major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington DC, 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, US Distribution, Sony Pictures Television. “The Dr. Oz Show franchise delivers tremendous multi-platform sales and marketing opportunities for local stations across the country.”
Oz launched on Fox in 2009. Sony says the most recent, seventh season saw double-digit growth on many Fox-Owned stations across the country, including flagship WNYW in New York, where it is up +75% year-to-year and +28% sweep-to-sweep among Women 25-54.
