As much as I hate to say this....I do think that the best thing for him to be seen today at the emergency vet. I'm hoping that he's only got a simple case of constipation, but since the suppository didn't help, I can't help but think that there could be something more serious going on. Things like anal gland infections or even prolapsed rectums can cause the symptoms you're seeing, and since it's likely that he's in a bit of discomfort, I think having him seen today is better than waiting until tomorrow.
I hope it turns out to be nothing serious.
