Jay Leno was checked in a hospital earlier today after feeling unwell. So far there has been no word as to his exact illness but according to his rep he is doing fine. Because of the hospitalization reruns will be shown for Thursday and Friday shows. Jay Leno isn’t expected to be back until Monday for the live tapings of the show. Jay Leno is known for his very strong work ethics and doesn’t miss work often so he must be feeling really bad to have checked himself in.
With just about a month more to go on The Tonight Show Jay Leno before Conan O’Brien steps in we sure hope Jay starts feeling better soon. No point in missing seeing him live on the show sooner than we have too. Jay Leno is turning 59 on Tuesday (He shares his birthday with Jessica Alba, who he recently had on the show) so we all want to see him have the grandest birthday celebration on the Tonight Show, after all that’ll be his last birthday as its host.
The people bumped for Thursday’s show due to the hospitalization included Ryan Reynolds, animal trainer Jules Sylvester, and the swing band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
Hope you’re feeling better Jay!
