My prayers for his recovery.

On the bright side, I'm eager to see how Vanna will fare hosting a complete episode. Don't believe she's ever done one before.

As a former WoF contestant, I hope for Patís speedy recovery, but Iím also interested to see how Vanna takes over hosting duties.

One has to wonder: Who will be handling the letters?

TMZ says Mickey Mouse will be doing the letters.

Though I really hope this isn't true.

This reminds me back in the late 90s and early 2000s where Wheel of Fortune had video game consoles, especially for the PC as well as the PlayStation, and that was when Vanna did hosting there.

Well I definitely wish Pat a speedy recovery, but it's going to be very interesting to see Vanna hosting complete shows during the time Pat misses. I'm assuming Mickey turning the letters is just for Disney week tapings.

December 1992. Back in the day when they still had the manual-turned letter board, but after the era of the "shopping spree". If you're curious, I have the video footage.

When was the last time the host missed a taping? I want to say in the mid-80s when Alex Trebek took Pat's place for a week.

Wishing Pat a speedy recovery.

If you wanna count the April Fool's 1997 switch between he and Alex, technically that'd be the last time a Wheel host didn't host an episode, but he was still there for that as a player so you probably would have to go back to the 80's otherwise. I wish those shows with Alex were around somewhere incidentally, I'd love to see those. Or the ones he did when Chuck was off before that due to his mental health issues at the time.

Sajak reports that the worst has passed. He'll be out of the hospital in a couple of days then back to Wheel..."unless Vanna has completely taken over!" he joked.

Did you have your episodes up on a website several years ago before YouTube existed? I remember watching episodes from around that time online, I think either Christmas or a Disney week.
