(Newser) – A Los Angeles-area hospital released funnyman Jay Leno today after observing him overnight for apparent dehydration, People reports. "We are happy to say that Jay Leno is feeling much better," NBC said in a statment. Leno plans to resume taping Monday after The Tonight Show was canceled today and yesterday. A Leno rep said he exerted himself no more than usual last week, when a historic heat wave struck Southern California.
