Drew Carey Released From Hospital

Comedian Drew Carey was released from the St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank Saturday afternoon following surgery to unblock a coronary artery, reports The Associated Press.

“He’s doing great,” said Carey‘s publicist Christina Papadopoulos. “He’s happy to be home.”

“All of us at ABC are thrilled his procedure was a success,” network spokesman Kevin Brockman said.

Carey, 43, who has starred in ABC’s The Drew Carey Show since 1995, began experiencing chest pains on Thursday and eventually had surgery. The surgery involved having a “stent” installed in his heart to keep the blocked artery open.

Carey is expected to return to work next week.
