Jeopardy host Alex Trebek will be taking leave from the show after undergoing brain surgery last month.

Trebek posted a video message about the hiatus on the show's official Facebook page. He was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma and had surgery to remove it on December 16.

"Surgery was performed", he continues, "after two days in the hospital I came home and started recovery". "Jeopardy" producer Sony Pictures TV said Trebek, 77, is expected to make a full recovery. "The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more Jeopardy! programs very, very soon!"

The show's producer, Sony Pictures Entertainment, said in a statement that Trebek was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on December 15 and underwent surgery the following day.
