NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - Alex Trebek, the host of the long-running TV quiz show “Jeopardy!,” was admitted into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Saturday after suffering a “mild heart attack.”

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.”
