A taping of "Wheel of Fortune" was canceled Thursday after host Pat Sajak had to undergo emergency surgery for a blocked intestine, the show tweeted Friday afternoon.
The surgery was successful, the show said in the tweet.
“He is resting comfortably and looking forward to getting back to work," representatives from "Wheel of Fortune" tweeted.
Vanna White stepped into the role of host to finish taping Friday.
Things seem to have gone well, with the show tweeting pictures of White with some Disney helpers.
"Tune in beginning December 9th," the show tweeted later Friday.
Wheel of Fortune is in its 37th season of syndication, according to CBS. Sajak and White have hosted the show together since its 1983 nighttime debut.
He, along with White, spoke at the event, lauding Friedman for his accomplishments and posing for photos.
Sajak is one of the longest running television hosts in the United States. Another longtime TV host, Alex Trebek of "Jeopardy" has also recently had health issues. Trebek was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer earlier this year.
