Daphne Oz Steps Into Dad's Timeslot With The Good Taste

Two weeks since Dr. Mehmet Oz declared his candidacy for U.S. Senate, Sony Television Pictures announced that his long-running program, "The Dr. Oz Show," would be cancelled. That's a big change, after 13 seasons, but according to People Magazine, it seems that there will still be an Oz on the air in that timeslot.

As reported by Sony, Dr. Oz's daughter, Daphne Oz, will be taking over that slot in her new show, "The Good Taste." The show, which originally started as a segment on her father's program called "The Dish on Oz," will be co-hosted by "Top Chef" judge Gail Simmons and "Next Food Star" winner Jamika Pessoa. 

"The Good Taste" will premiere on January 17, 2022, three days after the last episode of "The Dr. Oz Show." The new program will provide what is being described as "Simple shortcuts, money-saving tips, must-have trends and effortless how-tos to help you have confidence in the kitchen — and your life" (via The Dr. Oz Show's official website).

The show will be an extension of their previous segment

While she may not be a household name to many people, Daphne Oz is a well-known chef and cookbook author in culinary circles. Along with writing three bestselling cookbooks, she has co-hosted a number of food-related shows, including "The Chew" — for which she and her co-hosts won the 2015 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Host[s] — and been a guest judge for a number of food competition shows, including "Beat Bobby Flay" and "Masterchef Junior" (via IMDb). Her personal cooking style tends to focus on making healthier eating a priority and enjoyable, "but not an obsession," she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

In a press release on Monday, Zack Hernandez, the senior vice president/general sales manager, U.S. syndication sales for Sony Pictures Television, stated (via Deadline), "Audiences have been loving what Daphne, Gail and Jamika have been serving up during their weekly segments on 'The Dr. Oz Show' for years. We have long believed The Good Dish would make an excellent stand-alone series and are delighted to be able to deliver this fresh take on the cooking genre to our station partners and their viewers across the country."

Co-executive producers Amy Chiaro and Stacy Rade, concurred, and seem excited for the show's potential. "There is no better time for a show like The Good Dish. Daphne, Gail and Jamika know how to make food accessible with the ability to seamlessly deliver home, lifestyle and trending content. These incredible women will make you laugh, enjoy cooking again and make your life just a little easier. It's the most fun you can have in the kitchen without having to do the dishes," People reports.

The show is being produced by ZoCo Productions, who also produce "The Dr. Oz Show."
