Alex Trebek is taking a small break from quizzing trivia nerds.

On Thursday, the Jeopardy! host revealed that he's on medical leave from his hosting duties, as he's recovering from surgery relating to a subdural hematoma. The "slight medical problem" — Alex's words, not ours — occurred after Trebek suffered from a fall a couple months ago.

In fact, in his video announcement (above), the industry vet promised to be back filming Jeopardy! episodes "very, very soon." We're so glad to hear that he's going to be okay.
