In fact, in his video announcement (above), the industry vet promised to be back filming Jeopardy! episodes "very, very soon". Trebek said, "I want to thank all of you for your concern". The 77-year-old promised a speedy return to the show. The blood clots, also known as a subdural hematoma, came about after Trebek fell in October.
Jeopardy! debuted as a daytime show in 1964, and ran until 1975. Because the show is filmed months in advance, its broadcast schedule won't be affected with one exception: The upcoming College Championship, which was supposed to tape now, will film in March and air in April. In 2011, he ruptured his Achilles tendon while chasing a burglar out of his hotel room. Although there have been occasional postponements in the show's taping, Trebek has hosted Jeopardy! for 33 years and is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon.
