Our hearts are breaking for Jimmy Fallon. His mom has reportedly fallen ill, and she has since been hospitalized. Because of this, Friday’s taping for ‘The Tonight Show’ has been canceled.
Everyone’s Friday night will be a bit different this week, as a new report claims that today’s taping for The Tonight Show has been canceled. But before you go and throw some sort of fit (we were almost guilty of this), we should tell you that it’s due to a family emergency. Jimmy Fallon‘s mom has reportedly fallen ill and been hospitalized, according to Entertainment Weekly. No more details were given at this time, but what we do know is that a September installment of the show will air in its place, and the plan is for The Tonight Show to resume as scheduled next week.

Interestingly, Jimmy, 43, appeared on the Nov. 2 episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, during which he talked about Justin Timberlake‘s breakup with Britney Spears, the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and whether or not Janet Jackson will be making an appearance with JT on stage. He seemed to be in good spirits, so we can only assume he learned of his mother’s illness after he taped his appearance. Watch him awkward dish on Justin and Britney’s epic split in the video below.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy Fallon and his family during this difficult time in their lives. We certainly hope his mom recovers. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT.
