'Jeopardy!' on hiatus while Alex Trebek recovers from brain surgery

Jeopardy!/Facebook

Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek had to undergo surgery as a result of a fall and head injury. "The prognosis is excellent and I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon", Trebek said in a video posted Thursday on the show's social media accounts. He was diagnosed with the condition in mid-December, and had surgery to treat it the next day.

"And I want to thank all of you for your concern", he said.

Three and a half year in jail for Lalu Prasad Yadav
Lalu's son Tejaswwi Yadav, who alleged political vendetta behind the case, stated that his father was not afraid of the verdict. The CBI special judge had on December 23 acquitted former Bihar chief minister Jagannath Mishra and five others in the case.

As the show's episodes are taped months in advance, it's likely that Trebek's leave will not impact production of the show too much. The only change to the 'Jeopardy!' schedule will be a delay of the annual college championship, which will air in April rather than February.

Alex Trebek attends the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation at the Official Residence of Canada on June 30, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Net Neutrality: FCC Chairman Pai Pulls Out Of CES 2018
Pai has been targeted by death threats on social media after his agency approved to strip Obama-era net neutrality rules. The sources told Recode that federal law enforcement became involved in checking out the threats against Pai.

He's had other public health scares: A heart attack in 2007 and another in 2012. "I just thought it was muscle strain".

Trebek appears to be one of the lucky ones, and we wish him a healthy new year and speedy recovery and hope he'll be able to resume his Jeopardy hosting duties soon.

Khloe Kardashian Remains Mum on Sister Kylie's Pregnancy Gossip
The comment sent Kardashian/Jenner fans into a frenzy and they rushed to speculate about whether it was in fact a confirmation. Khloe is subtly referring to her ex-husband Lamar Odom , who she married just one month after they met in 2009.

The surgery, which required Trebek to take a brief break from the show to recover, has only mildly affected the show's 2018 schedule. "Because of the gimmick of the question and answer-and I guess the fact that Americans are very competitive and people play along at home just to test themselves".
