Oprah Winfrey Stops by 'Dr. Oz' to Show What She's Been Up To (VIDEO)

Oprah Winfrey, 'The Dr. Oz Show'Oprah Winfrey stopped by the 'The Dr. Oz Show' (Weekdays, Syndicated) show to update her fans on what she's been up to since 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' went off the air. After 25 years "in the chairs," as she described it, Winfrey is excited to be getting up and "going out into the world just talking to people who I felt were interesting."

This includes film luminaries like George Lucas at his ranch, as well as a group of Hasidic Jews who'd never heard of her before agreeing to do her program. Clearly, the freedom that's been allowed her with the OWN network has opened Winfrey's mind to the possibilities of what she can explore.

Dr. Oz Loved the 'SNL' Sketch Mocking Him (VIDEO)

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 9th 2011 3:30PM
Getting lampooned on 'Saturday Night Live' is a rite of passage in Hollywood, a sign that you've arrived as a public figure who's well-known enough to be ripped to smithereens. And part of the deal is that afterwards, you have to maintain that you were flattered by the mockery and found it hilarious.

Kris Jenner
demonstrated this principle earlier in the week, and now Dr. and Lisa Oz are saying the same thing, after Bill Hader parodied the TV doctor in a sketch that showed him demonstrating the science of pooping in your pants.

"He could not have been happier. It was like, you know what, I've had a #1 daytime show, but the day he was on 'SNL' that meant he was successful," Lisa told 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox).

First, Dr. Oz explained the Transformation Nation challenge that's headlining the third season of his 'Dr. Oz Show.' He explained that each month of his seven-month season focuses on different issues, and in May, everyone will vote for the "person who's done the right things, who represents us," and that person will receive one million dollars.

"Yes, I'm a project," Dean admitted, before protesting Oz's assertion that each piece of her fried chicken contains 1,400 calories. "I think he got his information wrong ... it's got to be the whole chicken," she joked.

MSNBC drops Dr. Nancy daytime show

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 28th 2009 4:12PM
dr_nancy_snydermanSort of lost in the shuffle of the pre-Christmas news was this item. MSNBC has cancelled the Dr. Nancy show. What? You didn't even know there was a Dr. Nancy show starring NBC medical/health expert Dr. Nancy Snyderman? Don't worry. Most people weren't either. MSNBC plopped Dr. Nancy at 12 noon on June 29 and then did next to nothing to promote the show.

Even if MSNBC had done some publicity, it may not have helped. MSNBC daytime is a major problem for the network. They've been juggling and re-juggling the personalities, but nothing has worked. So while Dylan Ratigan is getting another slot on the channel, Dr. Nancy will return to her work as NBC's chief medical editor doing the NBC News and Today.

Dr. Oz and Joy Behar Get Frisky on 'The View' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 8th 2009 9:45AM
Among the things that put us in the mood, nipples and hemorrhoids definitely don't make the cut.

Joy Behar and Dr. Mehmet Oz, however, got frisky on 'The View' while discussing these and a part of the human anatomy that, uh, shall remain nameless. Watch the clip for more, but be forewarned, the humor veers dangerously close to the scatological.

Oprah's Big Give to Nate Berkus: His Own Talk Show

by Elizabeth Chan, posted Nov 17th 2009 10:23PM
Nate Berkus lands his own talk show.Oprah often gives away cool things for those in her studio audience. It seems her featured guests don't do too badly either.

"... And you get a show! And you get a show!"

Harpo Productions has announced plans for a new syndicated talk show featuring Nate Berkus, interior designer and featured regular on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' The as yet to be titled show is slated for 2010 and would be the second collaboration between Harpo Productions and its distributor, Sony Pictures Television. Their first collaboration, 'The Dr. Oz Show,' premiered this year and is proof that Oprah knows how to cultivate and develop new daytime talk show stars.

Berkus will join Dr. Phil, Rachael Ray and Dr. Oz in the "I was on Oprah, now I have my own show" club.

What would you do if you were Oprah?

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 15th 2009 3:07PM
oprah_winfrey_headThere's a lot of speculation in the biz about what will Oprah do next. The daytime talk show giant supposedly made up her mind recently and decided that her syndicated show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, would end its run in syndication and move to OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network (formerly Discovery Health). An official announcement is anticipated before the end of the year, but is that really was Oprah has decided? Nobody knows for certain.

There are pros and cons on either side. The companies that syndicated her talk show stand to lose a significant asset if she wraps up the current incarnation and abandons the market. Think of all those afternoon hours around that country that count on Oprah at three or four o'clock, or the morning slots where Oprah leads in to noon newscasts. Companies like CBS Distribution and the Tribune Company have feasted on the robust ratings Oprah has consistently delivered.

Dear Oprah: Yes! I DO want to reclaim my "best life"!

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 4th 2009 11:11AM

Oprah WinfreyI haven't watched Oprah for years, but I'll be tuning in this week and maybe even recording the shows to watch again later. Why? Because she's got a bunch of shows I can really use!

After admitting to the world that her weight has crept back up to 200 lbs. (although if a celebrity says they weigh 200 lbs., really they weigh at least 220 lbs. - trust me on this), she's getting back on that wagon and taking that fat bull by the horns.

Here's the rundown for her "Best Life Week," day by day:

Monday, Jan. 5: Your Weight. To get back on track, Oprah talks about her diet, workout plan, and ways to put yourself back on the priority list. Her workout guy Bob Greene stops by to help us all out of a rut. I just joined a gym, so I'm completely on-board with this one.

Oprah's talk show future might be all her OWN

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 5th 2008 9:31AM
Oprah WThere's a famous scene in The Godfather: Part III -- the only really memorable one -- where Michael Corleone says, "Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in." I thought of that when I read that Oprah Winfrey may not be ending her talk show in 2011 after all. What? I thought it was a done deal, but no. Every time I think she's done, she's back again.

When asked by Access Hollywood about The Oprah Winfrey Show ending in 2011, Ms. W said, "I'm not done." Well, you sure could have knocked me over with a feather. I mean, really, I understand that it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind, but I really thought Oprah had other worlds to conquer, other fish to fry.

Why is Oprah's show in a slump?

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 14th 2008 11:41AM
Recently, TV columnist Aaron Barnhart took note of the fact that Oprah Winfrey's show is sinking in the ratings. Her talk show, which is the centerpiece of her multimedia success -- a success that has made her the richest woman in show business -- has been losing ratings consistently for the last six months. At first blush, the politically minded of you might think it's because she endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, but I think it's more than that. After all, if anything, the vast amount of grassroots support that the Senator from Illinois has engendered might be a plus for Oprah rather than a minus.

Therefore, there have to be other factors to explain why Oprah's landmark TV talk show has lost its luster -- at least ratings-wise. I've come up with six possible reasons.

Paula Deen going into syndication

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 15th 2008 10:42AM
Paula DeenMove over, Rachael Ray! Another Food Network bird is straying for the nest to try her wings in syndication. Southern diva Paula Deen is readying a daytime cooking show for syndication in 2009. She also following Rachael's lead by not giving up her secure and lucrative connection to Food Network. Her Paula's Home Cooking and Paula's Party programs will remain Food Network staples.

The challenge for Paula will be coming up with a show that's not simply an echo of her other two shows. Unlike Rachael, who does a full-fledged talk show with a cooking segment, Paula's new effort is being called a "cooking" show. That could be limiting.
