Jeopardy on Hiatus While Trabek Recovers from Brain Surgery

 Production on Jeopardy! has  been suspended while longtime host Alex Trebek recovers from brain  surgery. The 77-year-old was admitted to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical  Center on December 15 after experiencing complications from hitting his  head in a bad fall. He was diagnosed with blood clots in the brain (a  condition called subdural hematoma) and underwent surgery to have them  removed the next day. In a video from his home, Trebek downplayed the  operation as "a slight medical problem" and said he hoped to resume  taping "very, very soon." Because Jeopardy! is taped  months in advance, there are still plenty of unaired episodes for  viewers to watch. The only change in the show's schedule will be a delay  in the show's annual college championship.
