This season will also see the return of several immensely popular show elements from earlier seasons such as featuring one lucky audience member as Dr. Oz's "Assistant of the Day" (AOD) to help him with one major segment on that day's show and the "Truth Tube" — a vertical on-stage monitor which gives the audience graphical insight into what's going on in a guest's body — from blood work to weight loss — numbers never lie.

In a first for "The Dr. Oz Show," viewers take over an entire show via social media and get to decide all of the show topics.
