Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Saturday after what The Hollywood Rerporter calls "a mild heart attack." A statement from Sony Pictures Television says Trebek, age 71, "is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at Jeopardy! when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show's 29th." After a heart attack in late 2007, Trebek returned to his hosting gig within weeks.
