Jeopardy! Power Players Week

The show posted a video to its website on Thursday along with a message to fans.

Back in December of 2017, Trebek was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma (blood clots) after suffering a fall and had surgery to correct the condition on December 16th. "And I want to thank all of you for your concern".


Alex Trebek is recovering from brain surgery this week but doing well. The prognosis is excellent.

Trebek "is expected to make a full and complete recovery", show producer Sony Pictures Entertainment says in a statement, noting Trebek is due back in the middle of this month.


Because of "Jeopardy's" long lead time in taping, the only change to the show's on-air schedule will be the shift of its College Championship episodes from March to April. In 2011, he ruptured his Achilles tendon while chasing a burglar out of his hotel room.

However, none of these health problems have dissuaded Trebek from hosting the quiz show.


Production on the daily show has been put on hiatus to allow the 77-year-old Canadian to recuperate.
