Fifth Season of THE DR. OZ SHOW Premieres Today
The three-time Emmy Award-winning, critically-acclaimed and nationally-syndicated "The Dr. Oz Show" begins its fifth season today, Monday, September 9, with a healthy dose of fun featuring all-new episodes, celebrity interviews and action packed segments.
The fifth season promises to be the most entertaining yet, proving that laughter truly can be the best medicine, evidenced by a new segment where America's Doctor and two-time Emmy winning host, Dr. Mehmet Oz goes undercover, dressing as a woman, to surprise viewers with the truth about health myths. Plus, expect a full line-up of A-list celebrities, donning the iconic purple gloves, examining organs, and getting advice about their health concerns. Celebrity interviews include Steven Tyler, Duck Dynasty, Sweet Brown, Wayne Brady, Kandi Burruss, Kim Coles, Cheryl Burke, Melissa and Joe Gorga, Louie Armstrong and more. In a first for "The Dr. Oz Show," viewers take over an entire show via social media and get to decide all of the show topics. More outrageous segments include the best sex positions for back pain and Dr. Oz attempting to climb a 15-foot weave.
This season will also see the return of several immensely popular show elements from earlier seasons such as the "Assistant of The Day" and the "Truth Tube." Dr. Oz will feature one lucky audience member as his "Assistant of the Day" (AOD) to help him with one focal segment on that day's show. The AOD will share their personal health situation with Dr. Oz and then the doctor will guide the AOD through to a possible solution. The "Truth Tube" is a vertical on-stage monitor which gives the audience graphical insight into what's going on in a guest's body from blood work to weight loss, numbers never lie. This tool is used in interviews to illustrate a typical conversation you may have with your doctor through Dr. Oz's fun and compassionate filter. In continuation of his mission, Dr. Oz remains committed to fighting for his viewers on consumer issues and giving them access to information they didn't know existed.
