The Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Oz finds himself in the unfamiliar role of patient when THE DR. OZ SHOW returns for its second season on Tuesday, September 7 at 5 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

As part of the second season premiere, the EMMY® AWARD-winning host, who turned 50 in June, undergoes a colonoscopy to emphasize the critical role they can play in detecting and preventing colon cancer.

But there are some surprising results: Dr. Jon LaPook, gastroenterologist and chief medical correspondent for CBS News, administers the screening and reveals some news that will have a profound impact on Dr. Oz’s life, family and viewers.

THE DR. OZ SHOW airs Monday – Friday at 5 p.m. ET on CTV. New episodes of THE DR. OZ SHOW are available on demand the day following their television broadcast on the CTV Video Player at CTV.ca. THE DR. OZ SHOW also airs Monday – Friday at 9 p.m. ET on Star!.

Last season, THE DR. OZ SHOW averaged 644,000 viewers on CTV and became the #2 talk show in the country behind THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW with total viewers and A25-54 and A18-49. Additionally, Dr. Oz won an Emmy® for outstanding informative talk show host at the 2010 Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards, while THE DR. OZ SHOW was nominated for Best Informative Talk Show. 

Additional episodes airing during premiere week feature three major themes which will recur throughout the new season – “5 to Know,” “Just 10 Pounds” and “The Pulse.” Each of these three segments will teach viewers about the five most important numbers that can save lives: blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, weight and waist size.

OZ SHOW debuts a brand new feature segment for 2010 – “The Pulse” – which rounds up top medical experts for a spirited discussion of the hottest health headlines.
