Famous game show host Alex Trebek was hospitalized last weekend after suffering a mild heart attack. According to TMZ, the 71-year-old was admitted to the renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in California where he underwent testing. Ironically, Jeopardy! was picking up a Daytime Emmy right around the time Trebek was recovering from the heart attack. According to a rep for Sony Television, the Jeopardy! host was in "good spirits" despite the health scare. And it is still game on for Trebek, who will reportedly be back to work when the award-winning show resumes taping in July. This isn't the first time Trebek has had troubles with his ticker. Back in 2007, he was forced to take time off after suffering from a heart attack.
