Jimmy Fallon Cancels Friday’s Episode of The Tonight Show Due to a Private Family Matter
Jimmy Fallon has canceled Friday’s taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon due to a personal matter.
In a statement to People, a representative for NBC said the show had been canceled due to “a private Fallon family matter.”
A source revealed to People that the comedian’s mother Gloria is sick and that Fallon, 43, has gone to the hospital to be by her side.
“Jimmy comes from a very close-knit family, and together with the rest of his loved ones they are by her side right now,” the source added.
In place of a new show, NBC will air a repeat episode from September, which featured musicians Madonna and Camila Cabello.
Currently, there are no plans for production changes next week.
