Dr Oz Wants To Get Back Into TV, But Ex-TV Producers Are Blowing Him Off



Now that Dr. Oz's attempt at a political career proved to be disastrous, the cardiologist is looking to get back into the TV game.


However, after blowing through about $27 million of his own money to run for Senator of Pennsylvania (a state he didn't live in, BTW), TV execs aren't looking to dive back into the TV pool with him anytime soon (or if ever).



Oz has been desperately attempting to plot a television comeback after losing his race to democratic rival John Fetterman. Oz pulled in 2.4 million votes compared to Fetterman’s 2.7 million.


“No one in the mainstream will touch him,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “You can’t alienate half of your audience with a political stance and expect to bring in an audience on your return to television,” the source added.


We’re told that Oz had impressed execs at Fox News and Newsmax but no firm offers materialized. Oz is expected to return in small roles on the right-wing networks.


However, sources said Oz wants his own show back telling us, “He wants a daily gig. But it is not going to happen.”


Another source said, “He’s beating the bushes to revive his health-oriented talk show and groveling to everyone he knows to give him a break, but he’s not making much progress.”


An insider claimed, “He can’t even get a word with his former producers. Dr. Oz is a social creature who likes to hear himself talk, and it’s beginning to dawn on him that he’s just now wanted in Hollywood circles anymore.”


Oz’s talk show ran from September 2009 through January 2022. He stepped down from the show to launch his campaign.


During his months on the campaign trial, an unwelcome spotlight on Oz’s questionable medical advice and his opinions came under negative scrutiny — badly damaging his reputation.


Many critics have accused Oz’s run for the U.S. Senate as opportunistic and self-serving — as he had no real connection to the Keystone State — and claimed the longtime New Jersey resident only bought Pennsylvania property in December 2021 because of his political motives.


If Mehmet is desperate to get back into TV, maybe he can beg the Great American Family network for a job.


Once your former boss Oprah Winfrey endorses your opponent over the person she helped introduce into millions of homes there's no recovering from that.
