NEW YORK (AP) – Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is on the shelf following a hand injury that required minor surgery Friday and forced NBC to cancel a taping of late-night TV’s most popular program.
The “Tonight” show tweeted that Fallon is “totally fine” but NBC offered no immediate details on how or where the 40-year-old comic was injured. He’ll have some recovery time since the show was scheduled to be on hiatus for the next two weeks anyway.
“Tonight” was supposed to have Benicio Del Toro, Taylor Kitsch and Penn & Teller as guests Friday. NBC is airing a rerun instead.
