"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.

All the fans of Jeopardy are wishing you a speedy recovery. I'm not sure any heart attack is ever truly "mild" -- at least not to the person who's just had one. Please get well and take it easy for a fast and full recovery.

He has heart disease. This is his second heart attack and he will have a third if he doesn't dramatically change his diet. He should read Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.

Alex retire already. Don't be like these other hosts who retire and then within a few months drop dead. Enjoy the fruits of your labor while you can.

Alex is a game show legend-- just like Richard Dawson was. Hope he has a speedy recovery and doesn't meet the same end as Richard for a very long time. :)
