TV show host Jay Leno fell ill today and was checked into the hospital prompting the 'Tonight Show' to be canceled. It was not immediately known what caused his illness (food poisoning is rumored), but he reportedly checked himself into the hospital and is recuperating. Animal trainer Jules Sylvester and actor Ryan Reynolds and the band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy were to appear, according to LAist's TV Junkie column. A rerun will air instead.
