Hey Jay Leno — if you needed a long weekend, just ask!

The talk show legend is getting a small vacation as he’s at home resting up after checking himself into Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center yesterday.

In a statement to <a href="http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b120549_leno_out_of_hospital_doing_well_will.html" target="_blank">E! News</a> a rep for NBC confirmed the good news. "We are happy to say that Jay Leno is feeling much better and has been released from the hospital. He’s anxious to return to work on Monday."

According to the story, Jay’s publicist says the Tonight Show host’s overnight stay was "for observation purely as a precautionary measure."
