Fallon had tripped and fell in his kitchen. His ring had “got caught on the countertop when I was going down, and stuck there and pulled my finger off.”

“Apparently, the odds aren’t great and usually they just cut your finger off,” Fallon told the Tonight Show audience, as reported by ET.

“I won’t get feeling back for eight weeks,” he added.

Contract extension

Fallon’s massive popularity has earned him a contract extension. As announced by NBC, the contract has been extended by six years.
