Wheel of Fortune's Pat Sajak Recovering From Emergency Surgery; Vanna White to Host in His Absence

https://people.com/tv/wheel-of-fortune-pat-sajak-emergency-surgery/
Longtime Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, 73, has had to undergo emergency surgery for a blocked intestine, the show’s reps tell PEOPLE.

While the longtime host is expected to be fine, Thursday’s taping of the show, which is now in its 37th season, was canceled.

“The Wheel of Fortune taping on Thursday was canceled because host Pat Sajak underwent successful emergency surgery to correct a blocked intestine,” the show posted to its social media channels. “He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work. Taping resumed today as scheduled, and Vanna White has stepped in a host.”

1. Pat Sajak is a veteran too.

Just thought I'd throw that in.

I wish him a speedy recovery.

3. I still wish him a speedy recovery.

Because it’s the kind of thing I believe in.

9. DJ on Armed Forces Radio

LOL

He's a total asshole reich-winger. I hope to never see him on air again.

I was infantry and respect most vets, even REMFs, but not asshole Sajak.

10. I knew literally nothing about him

I just heard it mentioned on the show that he was a veteran. I'm not happy at all to hear he's not only a Republican, but a very vocal one. I know a lot of people are able to separate politics from entertainment, but I really can't. I always said I'd love to go on Wheel of Fortune, but now I can toss away that thought. Oh well.

5. That was my first thought

Amazing that both Alex and Pat have serious health issues at the same time.
Like many of us, neither is a spring chicken.

6. The show Tweeted a special message to him

The show Tweeted a special message to him,
spelling out “Get well soon Pat!” on the famous puzzle board.
