Alex Trebek recovering from brain surgery

Long-running Jeopardy host (and Coolio aficionado) Alex Trebek has announced he will be taking a break from his quizmaster duties as he recovers from surgery.

Trebek downplayed the operation as "a slight medical problem".

He explained that he suffered the subdural hematoma, or blood clots on the brain after the injury about two months ago.

Trebek posted a video on YouTube explaining he spent two days in the hospital following the surgery and is now recovering at home.

So soon in fact, the syndicated game show says Trebek will resume taping in mid-January.

He continued saying that two days after surgery, he was able to return home and his "prognosis is excellent". Because JEOPARDY! tapes months in advance, the only change made to the show's schedule concerns the upcoming College Championship, which will now air in April. He underwent surgery on December 16 for a subdural hematoma, or blood clots on the brain, that he incurred from a fall back in October.

Production on Jeopardy! has been put on a brief hiatus while longtime host Alex Trebek recuperates from surgery.
