Format of 'The T.D. Jakes Show'

T.D. Jakes has wanted a talk show like this for years. Now he has one. The 59-year-old pastor, author, and filmmaker partnered with Dr. Phil McGraw, his son Jay McGraw, and CBS Television Distribution back in 2009 to launch a syndicated, secular talk show, but the program never premiered. A test run of the new "The T.D. Jakes Show" show ran in Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, and Minneapolis from August 17 to September 11, 2015.

The test market was successful enough for the show to be approved on May 10, 2016 to be aired nationwide. "The T.D. Jakes Show" began airing in markets across the United States on September 12, 2016.

The one-hour program is filmed before a live audience in Los Angeles. It is designed for viewers to interact with the host through social media using @tdjakesshow. Jakes is the bishop of The Potter's House in Dallas, Texas with about 17,000 members. His new platform does not include preaching.
