More new series in the daytime programming block look to be on tap in the New Year.  Now, Sony Pictures Television has greenlit a new syndicated series from the producers  of The Dr. Oz Show, slated for a fall 2020 debut – a spinoff called The Good Dish.

The new talk/foodie show which started as cooking segment called “The Dish on Oz” will be hosted by the former co-host of The Chew Daphne Oz (Dr.Oz’s daughter), along with Vanessa Williams, Gail Simmons (Top Chef) and Jamika Pessoa (The Next Food Star).

According to Deadline:  The Good Dish will provide simple shortcuts, everyday recipes and trends that will make life easier, bring families together, save money and most importantly…figure out what’s for dinner, according to producers.

The Good Dish marks the third new syndicated program announced for fall 2020, along with the previously announced Drew Barrymore and Nick Cannon talkers.

In a statement, John Weiser, President First Run Television for Sony PicturesTelevision expressed: “We have experienced overwhelming feedback from our audiences on “The Dish on Oz” cooking segments, which have been recently featured on The Dr. Oz Show. When Daphne Oz and this all-star ensemble were available, we recognized the opportunity for viewers, advertisers, and local broadcast stations. We have on-air tested this format and talent for two years perfecting this show we are now bringing to market. Spinoffs have the highest success rate of converting into multi-year franchises. In fact, spinoffs gave us the great Dr. Oz straight from Oprah!”

Baby Oz stars in Chew II: the sequel nobody asked for.

Don’t care about any of these news shows, as long as they stay away from the General Hospital time slot. Every time I hear about a new talk show, I wonder if ABC deciding that they are no longer in the soap business is right around the corner. That will be a very dark day.

This sounds like The Chew, Part II. I understand that talk shows are cheap to produce, but why can’t food shows be on…The Food Network. Why do we need another talk show on the heels of Kelly Clarkson, Tamra Hall and the soon-to-be Drew Barrymore talk show. As much as I am trying to like Kelly’s talk show, it still feels like the same show/different host. Before another talk show is announced, I wish the networks would consider a game show or concentrate on increasing the quality of the four remaining soaps.

Lol…
another #OprahInfomercial posing as a show. Atleast we know who ownes Dr. Oz.
It also explains lots about his last failed show.
This will probably be just like Rachel Ray pushing unheathy qwik meals on the adoring public…?
We live in a world where it’s damn hard to get healthy ingredients to cook good food, so what are they selling us now?
Maybe Dafne will get a line of pots and pans and pet killing pet food like Rachel did.
just sayin???

Temporary recasts have been a common occurrence on ABC’s General Hospital, of late, but they have kept the characters and actions going when the actors have to step out of their role for a short term due to a myriad of reasons.

Now comes word that actor Brad Schmidt temporarily is filling-in for Johnny Wactor in the role of Brando Corbin.

Soap Opera Digest revealed the fill-in casting news in their latest issue on newsstands now.

No intel on what GH airdates Schmidt will be replacing Wactor in, but they should be coming up very shortly.

In his career, Schmidt actually appeared on As the World Turns and Guiding Light back in 2002, and has been seen in numerous primetime series including: Summerland, House of Lies and Yellowstone. 

Wactor started his run as Brando back in 2020 on GH.

Interestingly enough, Wactor’s on-screen lady love, Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) was recently replaced on-screen by her own sister, Helena Mattsson for a few episodes, and now it looks like the tables will be turned for Sofia acting with Wactor’s fill-in.

So, check out Brad on upcoming episodes of GH, and then let us know what you thought of him.  Comment below.
