Trebek discussed his situation in a short video on the show's YouTube channel on Jan. 4, saying that he had an operation to remove a subdural hematoma that had formed after he had a bad fall in October.

He'll be back to the hosting podium in mid-January, and thanks to the show's taping schedule, which films episodes months in advance, you probably won't even realize he was gone.


The only part of the show that was affected was the College Championship, which will film in March instead of right now.
