    We'll take "Recovery" for $1,000, please.

    Alex Trebek is on the mend, two days after the game-show legend suffered what his camp called a minor heart attack.

    The 71-year-old Jeopardy! host is "up and about and in good spirits while doctors complete their testing at Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute," a show rep told E! News Monday. 

    "He has been moved to a regular room today and looks forward to returning home as soon as his doctors give their approval."

    We certainly hope Trebek's medical team has all the answers!

    The Canadian-born TV veteran, who has been helming Jeopardy! since 1984, had a previous heart attack in 2007. He also landed in the hospital last summer with a snapped Achilles tendon after giving chase to an alleged would-be burglar who attempted to steal cash and jewelry from his San Francisco hotel room.
