Trebek will resume taping 'Jeopardy!' in mid-January, reports Deadline. "And I expect to be back in the studio taping more 'Jeopardy!' programs very, very soon", Trebek added. 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. Trebek, 77, underwent surgery in December after he hit his head during a fall, which caused some bleeding outside the brain.
