Jimmy Fallon Hand Injury Puts Kibosh on Tonight Show Taping

You’ll probably hear some emergency-room jokes in the coming weeks on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, but a hand injury suffered by the NBC host this morning in New York City is currently no laughing matter.

A Peacock net rep confirmed to TVLine that the show’s June 26 taping has been cancelled — and a repeat scheduled in its place — due to the accident.

TMZ first reported the news of Fallon’s injury — noting that after an examination at an area hospital, “a specialist recommended he have surgery immediately.”

According to NBC, Fallon is expected to make a complete recovery.
