NBC’s “Tonight” show was forced to broadcast a repeat Friday night after its star, Conan O’Brien, hit his head while trying a stunt during the show’s taping.
NBC issued a brief statement saying only that Mr. O’Brien had “hit his head doing a stunt and the show was not finished.”
No other details were released. One staff member on the show said Mr. O’Brien was expected to be fine and it was likely he would be back to work on Monday.
NBC also released a statement attributed to Mr. O’Brien, which said, “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.”
