If you were wondering why The Tonight Show aired a repeat episode Friday night, it was all because the show’s star Conan O’Brien was in the hospital.
The late night host took a very nasty fall down a flight of stairs while rehearsing for a skit Friday afternoon. Conan was rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital for a thorough check-out.
Ever the funny man, Conan issued a statement about the incident: “Last thing I remember I was enjoying the play with Mrs. Lincoln, and the next thing I knew I was in bed being served cookies and juice.”
Conan is expected back to work on Monday. And, by the way, his scheduled guests for Friday were Teri Hatcher and Seth MacFarlane. NBC has not yet announced if they’ll be back on Monday.
