Veteran television commentator Andy Rooney, who earlier this month at age 92 took his final bow on the CBS news-magazine 60 Minutes, has been hospitalized due to complications from surgery, the network said on Tuesday.

"Andy Rooney underwent minor surgery last week and suffered serious complications," CBS said in a statement. "For that reason, he remains in the hospital, but his condition is stable. The Rooney family asks that their privacy be respected at this difficult time."
