"Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak is recovering after undergoing emergency surgery.

The show put out a message on its social media channels on Friday, saying taping on Thursday was canceled due to the surgery, which went successfully.

The procedure was to correct a blocked intestine, according to the show.

The 73-year-old host is reportedly resting comfortably and is looking forward to working again.

The show says taping resumed Friday and Vanna White has stepped in to host.
