Ed Asner, the 83-year-old actor best known for his roles in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and its spinoff "Lou Grant," has been released from a Chicago hospital, reports the Associated Press. Asner was originally hospitalized due to exhaustion on Tuesday night, when he was taken off the stage during a performance in Gary, Ind.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Asner's local performance of his one-man show, "FDR," has been canceled tonight, and the AP reports that additional performances in the national tour may be postponed as Asner recovers.

He is currently headed home to Los Angeles, says publicist Charles Sherman.
