After missing his first day of work in his 17 years as host of The Tonight Show due to an illness, Jay Leno has been released from the hospital.
Jay stayed overnight at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank for precautionary measures after falling ill early Thursday. While the funnyman cancelled his show on Thursday and Friday, he is expected back on stage on Monday night.
“We [are] happy to say that Jay Leno is feeling much better and has been released from the hospital,” a rep for NBC said Friday. “He’s anxious to return to work on Monday.”
