(Newser) – Tonight Show host Jay Leno was hospitalized today, KTLA-TV reports, forcing the cancellation of this evening’s gabfest. Leno, who was feeling poorly, checked himself into the hospital, but his ailment is not serious—a spokeswoman said he was in “good spirits” and penning jests from his bed—and he is now resting at home, a rep tells TMZ.
