----
!!This TV show provides examples of:
* [[AdoredbytheNetwork Adored by the Grocery Store Newstands]]: Not a month goes by without Dr. Oz on the front cover of some health magazine.
* AllMenArePerverts: One guest stated that the reason most men would rather skip the foreplay is because, "to a man, sex is about having your penis touched and waiting to have your penis touched." Dr. Oz agreed with her.
* AudienceParticipation: At least one lucky member gets to be the "assistant of the day", and sometimes the front row or even the whole studio gets in on something.
* BigApplesauce: Filmed in New York. Call-outs for participants to appear on the show usually specify that they must live in New York, or at least the tri-state area.
** BellyDancer: There's been at least one.
* BoringButPractical: The reason why Dr. Oz normally wears scrubs on the show is that there's usually a segment where he's actually handling preserved organs (or some other demonstration that ends up being messy).
* BillNyeTheScienceGuy: Was a guest in at least one episode.
* ConfessionCam: Used all the time, both for serious situations and not-so-serious ones.
* [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Dress Coded For Your Convenience]]: Dr. Oz normally wears scrubs. If he shows up in a collared shirt and tie (or even a full-out suit), you can bet the day's topic is going to be more serious.
* TheEponymousShow
* MrFanservice: The doctor himself. It's suspected that part of the reason he urges women to have more sex is so their husbands don't get jealous. After all, if hubby gets more nookie, it's ''good'' that his wife watched the show, yes?
** EstrogenBrigade: His studio audience is ''at least'' 80% female, usually more. Some days it's hard to spot a guy in the crowd.
* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: Or at least they would if they followed his advice.
** HotterAndSexier: Each season seems to be trying to one-up the last on what they can get past the radar.
* ICantDance: Dr. Oz likes for fans to teach him new dances. His actual skill at performing them is not nearly as great as his enthusiasm, which tends to make the whole clip quite entertaining.
* ImNotADoctorButIPlayOneOnTV: Actually averted, as Dr. Oz still performs surgery one day a week outside shooting the show. His logic is that he can either patch up a few people a day, or he can educate the nation on how to put him out of business.
** Although for a heart surgeon, most of his topics are surprisingly unrelated to heart surgery...
* MoodWhiplash: A single show can switch from a very serious conversation with women who have lost family members to cancer over to audience members passing brightly colored balls representing poop through a plastic tube representing the colon.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: He doesn't miss a beat when discussing sensitive topics, and has no trouble with giddy, giggly Assistant of the Days who jump at the chance to give him a hug or kiss on the cheek.
* OpenHeartDentistry: He's specifically a heart doctor, but his topics range all over. Certain episodes might make the viewer think he's a gynecologist...
* ProductPlacement: Most of the products shown (especially vitamins and supplements) are BrandX, but Dove and Pedigree are often mentioned by name if the segment is about skin care or pet care.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: The game of the day will be INTRODUCED! IN! THIS! FASHION! with AudienceParticipation.
* ShesGotLegs: Almost all of the women who appear in his audience, as well as serve as assistants of the day seem to almost always wear something that would show off and/or accentuate their legs, from short skirts to leggings.
* {{Spinoff}}: Like so many other things, from ''[[Series/TheOprahWinfreyShow Oprah]]''.
