Topic - The Dr. Oz Show

The Dr. Oz Show is an American syndicated television talk show, with a feminine base, hosted by Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon and teaching professor at Columbia University who became famous for his appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show from 2004 until 2009. The show, which debuted on September 14, 2009, is co-produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions and Sony Pictures Television, is the second Oprah spin-off series featuring a regular guest (Dr. Phil (TV series) was the first), and marks the first time that Winfrey's company has partnered with another studio outside of the current CBS Television Distribution, which co-produces her series as well as her other series (assumed to be because The Dr. Oz Show is in direct competition with the Dr. Phil spinoff The Doctors, which CTD distributes). Shows are taped in Studio 6A at NBC Studios in New York, which is best known as the home of Late Night with David Letterman from 1982 to 1993 and Late Night with Conan O'Brien from 1993 to 2009. In the first season the show was nominated for an Emmy in best informative talk show and Doctor Oz took home an Emmy for best talk show host. The show has been renewed for a second season. - Source: Wikipedia
