"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.

Alex, you are an inspiration to all us. Given your youthful looks and superb mental a***en, it is hard to believe that you are almost 72. We want you to hang around for another 48 years. I pray the Lord grant you a very quick and complete recovery, in Jesus Name. Amen!

Alex never looks good. He always looks tired and haggard.

Alex will be fine. He's a hockey player. He's irreplaceable. I'm thinking who his replacement could be when he finally hangs 'em up. Peter Sagal of NPR's Wait Wait......Don't Tell Me seems like the best qualified man for the job.
