'The Good Dish' to name new title, get back on air

Watch your Tuesday local newscasts for updates to CNN’s report, “Investigating Dr. Oz”, on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s investigation into his mental health and mental illness status.

MSNBC will add back its daily syndicated show “The Daily Rundown” this week, with Nicolle Wallace and host Melissa Harris-Perry joining the panel on Wednesday. That program will resume next week with two hours. (A schedule here.)

The talk show “Dr. Oz” will end and “The Good Dish” will be the name of its long-running daytime show starting this week.

The news was reported earlier by The Hollywood Reporter. The show’s name was announced with Ezra Klein and Arianna Huffington on Sunday as part of a broader discussion on pushing boundaries to get people to seek appropriate health care.

Co-host Mehmet Oz will remain as one of the show’s two hosts, as he said publicly last month that he planned to do.

The relationship with Dr. Oz is one of the most talked-about part of the current congressional investigation into the talkshow host’s mental health and mental illness status. The House Energy and Commerce Committee is investigating Oz’s fitness to practice medicine.

The appearance of any connection between Oz and the probes has been a major point of contention in the media debates over them. Oz himself weighed in to Bloomberg News last month, stating that he hasn’t been involved with his show on behalf of his father’s doctor, Zeke Oz.

The “Good Dish” will return with regular panel timeslots on weekday afternoons starting Tuesday (with a new guest host on Mondays, so no Perry or Harris-Perry yet). Current guests on the show are author Hank Carlisle and a doctor named Ian F. Deweese, who specializes in primary care. Oz and Erwin Chemerinsky, who is the dean of the UC Berkeley law school, are set to appear this week on “The Good Dish”.

There are no immediate plans to move the shows to their usual timeslots.
