Conan Recovers from Head Injury

It will take more than a bump on the head to keep Conan O’Brien away from the Tonight Show.

The talk show host is expected to return tonight after suffering a head injury during a stunt on Friday, which forced him to cancel that night's show.

Originally scheduled for Friday’s show were Teri Hatcher and Seth MacFarlane but a repeat episode with Jeremy Piven ran instead.

Details of the stunt weren’t released by NBC, but Hatcher let the cat out of the bag.

O’Brien was mocking Hatcher’s recent participation in the Malibu triathlon.

"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," Hatcher told Entertainment Tonight. "He didn't get off the floor right away, 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."

O’Brien spent the weekend resting at home after a short visit to the hospital for a concussion.

"Last thing I remember I was enjoying the play with Mrs. Lincoln, and the next thing I knew I was in bed being served cookies and juice," O’Brien said in a statement released by NBC.

Good to know a bump on the head didn’t affect his sense of humor!
