"Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek is out of the hospital and plans to spend the holidays at home with his family as he recovers from a heart attack.

"I'm truly overwhelmed by the great show of support and compassion expressed in the past few days to me, my family and my co-workers," Trebek said Saturday after his release from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, in a statement relayed by "Jeopardy" publicist Jeff Ritter.

Trebek, 67, was hospitalized Monday night after being stricken with what Ritter said was a minor heart attack.
