Legendary "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is recovering from emergency surgery, reports USAToday.
The game show announced on Twitter Friday afternoon that Sajak, 73, underwent a successful procedure to "correct a blocked intestine."
"He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work," the game show's Twitter account added.

Although Sajak is on the mend, Thursday’s taping of "Wheel of Fortune" was canceled. Shooting for the 37th season resumed Friday with longtime co-host Vanna White at the helm for episodes that will air starting Dec. 9.
"Taping resumed today as scheduled and Vanna White has stepped in as host," the show's Twitter account added, along with a "Get Well Soon Pat!" message on the iconic puzzle board.
White filled in once before for one segment of the show, when Sajak had laryngitis in 1996.
