For the first time in the show’s 37-year history, Vanna White will be hosting Wheel of Fortune on her own for the next few weeks.
Longtime host Pat Sajak, 73, was sidelined last month to undergo emergency surgery for a blocked intestine. The show took one day off from taping, then resumed with White as host. Those episodes begin airing on Monday, December 9.
Tonight’s my first night of hosting Wheel! I’m excited and nervous! Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/4Jsz3UePFp

It’s a bit confusing, but here’s the deal: Vanna will be hosting this coming week and the next. Then two weeks of shows I taped before my surgery. Then Vanna again the week of Jan. 6 with a special guest at the puzzle board. Then the planets will realign, and it’s back to normal.
