Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was hospitalized in Los Angeles yesterday after suffering a mild heart attack.The 71-year-old trivia king and sprinkler fix-it guy was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center yesterday, according to Deadline Hollywood. He seems to be doing okay, but he stuck around at the hospital to have some more tests. This is Trebek's second minor heart-attack—he had another minor attack back in 2007. As with the last attack he had, he's expected to make a full recovery.
