"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek suffered a mild heart attack Saturday and was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. where he is still recovering.

A spokeswoman for Alex says the 71-year-old is expected to make a full recovery ... she says he should be ready to resume his "Jeopardy!" hosting duties when they start filming the new season next month.

Trebek has been the host of the popular trivia game show for 28 years.

The show won a Daytime Emmy for best game show on Saturday while Trebek was in the hospital recovering.

I'm sorry TMZ, you did not type that heading in the form of a question. That will cost you 100 dollars.

Thankfully it was a MILD heart attack and he's expected to be ok. This could be a blessing in disguise. Lets hope Mr. Trebek has a full recovery and can prevent this from happening again!

TMZ, make it so when someone replies to a comment, the comment author is notified somehow. People are posting some nonsense on this site and they need to be aware of how stupid they look. More than likely the idiots who reply to this will be in that group.

I welcome all idiots to comment and tell me how they're not idiots and how their opinion is valid. Idiots....GOOOO
