What's This?

Jimmy Fallon, “Tonight Show” host, nearly ripped off his finger when he met an accident in his home. The accident happened when he returned home after taping a show on Wednesday.


Fallon explained that he fell on the floor but caught himself. While doing that, his wedding ring got caught on the side of a nearby table. Jimmy Fallon nearly ripped off his finger. The injury was so horrifying he had to be rushed to the hospital where he went through surgery.

Fallon had to take a few days leave in order to completely recover from the injury. The Friday night show was canceled, though it was supposed to feature Benicio Del Toro, Taylor Kitsch, and comedians Penn & Teller. A re-run was scheduled in place. It is still not known if the same cast for Friday can be scheduled some time later, but what fans want now is the speedy recovery of Jimmy Fallon.

Before meeting the accident, the 40-year-old reportedly had dinner at Upper East Side restaurant Scalinatella and snapped some photos with his fans.

    Wishing him the best, but curious why he fell. Was there water on the floor, or toys or something he tripped over, or was he possibly drunk from the evening out?
