His publicist, Dick Guttman, said doctors found that Leno's illness wasn't "symptomatic of anything serious." On Friday, Guttman said he couldn'tprovide details of what ailed Leno when he checked into the hospital Thursday.

The 58-year-old comedian was hospitalized overnight for observation, Guttman said. Leno was expected to be back at work at the Burbank studios onMonday.
