"Some of you might have heard by now that during the holiday break, I had a slight medical problem", Trebek, 77, said in the video, before explaining the issue.

"Jeopardy" show host Alex Trebek reveals that he had brain surgery to remove blood clots, and has taken a medical leave from the show.

"Surgery was performed", he continues, "after two days in the hospital I came home and started recovery".

Back in October, Trebek took a hard fall, hitting his head. "The prognosis is excellent, and I expect to be back in the studio taping more "Jeopardy" programs very, very soon".

Trebek was since diagnosed with a subdural hematoma or, as he describes it, "blood clots on the brain".

Fox game show Jeopardy! is set to return to TV screens in mid-January. On Dec. 15 he was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with complications.

"The [GOAT] game show host", user Chief Garvey added.

Since the trivia show is taped months in advance, there are plenty of new episodes that will air during Trebek's recovery.

Trebek has been hosting the Emmy-winning show since Griffin decided in 1984 to revive it as a daily daytime show.
