Alex Trebek, the host of the long-running TV quiz show "Jeopardy!," was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Saturday, after suffering a "mild heart attack."
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Trebek, 71, is currently under observation and undergoing further tests.
A statement released Sunday by Sony Pictures Television reads that Trebek is in good spirits and "is expected to fully recover and be back at 'Jeopardy!' when production begins taping in July."
The show will be entering its 29th season.
Trebek has hosted "Jeopardy!" since 1984.
On Saturday, while Trebek was in the hospital, "Jeopardy!" won the Best Game Show award at the Daytime Emmys.
