Dr Oz: Health TV Show Trend
While chatting with daytime talk show hosts Montel Williams, Jerry Springer, and Sally Jessy Raphael, Dr Oz asked the three of them if they ever thought daytime television would move toward health and wellness as much as it has. Sally Jessy pointed out that they did health shows right from the very beginning in 1982 and they always worked for the ratings. For Montel, it was in 2001 when he started doing a panel every Wednesday called Living Well Wednesday. He would have doctors on and those doctors would give out information, so he believes television is continuing to move in that direction.
