Jeopardy host Alex Trebek had to undergo surgery after being rushed to the emergency room. This all came after a fall that happened before Christmas. WAND-TV says he was diagnosed with subdural hematoma, which is what required the surgery.
Doctors say all went well and he left the hospital a couple days later. He's expected to recover and get back on set in about 2 weeks. Alex Trebek is 77. (Am I the only one who was WAY off guessing his age? The guy needs to do infomercials on how to live right!)
Trebek's absence shouldn't be noticeable to viewers of the show. Trebek offered this update tonight on YouTube.
