O’Brien injured during ‘Tonight’ taping
Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien was injured while shooting a stunt for his U.S. TV show, prompting the series to offer fans a repeat episode, NBC says.
NBC officials said in a statement that O'Brien hit his head while filming part of Friday night's episode, resulting in the night's first-run episode not being completed and therefore replaced with a
Tonight Show repeat, The New York Times said Saturday.
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, O'Brien reportedly said in a statement following the incident.
E! Online said, according to an unidentified insider, O'Brien hit his head while running down a flight of stairs during Friday's filming.
