When your job is getting the best of you, and the competition is been coming on strong, what’s a person to do? The obvious of coarse…get hurt on the job. Think about it. Slip and fall, get paid time off, then relax to think about your next plan of action. That’s exactly what 46-year-old Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien realized this past Friday. Well…maybe it’s not, but we all know Jay Leno’s been bringing some serious heat!
Conan suffered a concussion after hitting his head while filming a stunt last night for the show with Desperate Housewives actress Teri Hatcher. The stunt was aimed to make fun of Teri’s recent participation in a triathlon. The show was canceled and replaced with a rerun.
“We did this bit and at the very end, when we ran in to cross the finish line, he slipped as he was crossing the finish line and hit his head,” Terri told Entertainment Tonight.
“He didn’t get off floor right a way, but then he [seemed] like he recovered and [pulled] it together, and they did an instant replay, and you could really see his head hit the floor,” the actress said. “He did go to hospital and he does have a concussion.”
The NBC network confirmed O’Brien was taken to a local hospital for observation, but wouldn’t give any detail on his condition.
Get better Conan, see you on Monday night!
