Conan crashes, cancels show

Television Comments (0)

Last night, as you may or may not have noticed, NBC’s “Tonight Show” ran a repeat instead of, well, a fresh show, actually supposed to be its first-run show since its star, Mr. Conan O’Brien, smacked his head against something hard (I’m guessing, which is about all we can do at the moment) while attempting a stunt during the show’s taping.

How fun.

As of now, no real information has been released as to what this hard object might be, exactly where this may have taken place (Los Angeles somewhere), and exactly what condition our beloved late night Irish comedian might be.

(It’s Hollywood. Does that really surprise you?)

What information has been released, however, was reported by The New York Times. That information is simply that O’Brien was not able to finish the show and was taken away for medical attention, obviously to a nearby hospital.

The statement released by NBC, and as reported by the Times, again, was that O’Brien “hit his head doing a stunt and the show was not finished.”

Whoa. Now that says a lot. Thank you NBC. My fears have all been pushed away now. I think I’ll let out a huge sigh of relief after all that information. Ahhhhh…

As far as any other details go, that’s about all you’re going to get at this very minute, sadly. Though I’m 110 percent positive some real information will be surfacing shortly. It’s about Conan O’Brien for God’s sake. The media are just dragging this out, as they always do, to generate more interest.


Wait..! This just in! As reported by the Associated Press: 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.”

Better? I didn’t think so. But before you go searching for things on Google like “Conan O’Brien hits head,” “Conan O’Brien hospital” or my personal favorite, “Conan O’Brien dead” (yeah, some people…), just give it another hour.
