The Tonight Show’s Twitter account confirmed that Fallon had been injured and that Friday’s taping had been cancelled. “He’s totally fine but we’ll be airing a repeat”, the tweet said.
“He is expected to make a full recovery”, the statement added. However, the publication claimed that he suffered a major injury and was brought to the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital after a night out.
Fallon left the program for the film industry starring in hits such as Taxi and Fever pitch which lead him back to his return to television hosting. It is unlikely they will be on the same episode.
