Thankfully, the surgery was successful and the longtime host was released from the hospital two days later. Trebek is expected to make a full and complete recovery. He is also expected to resume taping in mid-January.

The show is filmed months in advanced, therefore, the broadcast schedule won’t be affected with one exception: The upcoming College Championship, which was supposed to tape now, will film in March for April.


Trebek, 77, renewed his hosting deal in May, securing his gig through the 2019-20 season, which will be the syndicated show’s 36th year on-air.
