Dr. Drew Pinsky is expanding his sphere of influence. EW has confirmed that Pinsky, who has a eponymous show debuting on HLN in the spring and hosts Celebrity Rehab on VH1, will headline a new daily half-hour talk show dubbed Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers on the CW this fall.
Pinsky will tackle everything from addiction to relationship woes and also bring in experts. The network will air an original episode at 3 p.m. and follow it with a repeat. The news was first reported by Broadcasting & Cable.
The show comes courtesy of Telepictures, which previously produced The Tyra Banks Show for the CW’s daytime hour at 3. Repeats of the yakker continue to air in the slot.
