Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek on break after head injury

(CBS 58) -- Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek will soon return to work after undergoing surgery in late December.

According to a video posted on Twitter, Trebek was treated for a subdural hematoma which was caused by a fall. After a brief hospital stay, Trebek said he came home to start the recovery process and he says his "prognosis is excellent."

Trebek will return to the studio for taping in mid-January. He would also like to thank everyone for their concern. 

According to Jeopardy!, Because the show tapes months in advance, the only change made to the show’s schedule concerns the upcoming College Championship, which will now air in April. Otherwise, Jeopardy!’s broadcast schedule is unaffected.  

You can watch Jeopardy! weekdays at 6:00 p.m. on CBS 58.
