I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango Sept. 28-Oct. 2: Conan O’Brien and his concussion star on the Tonight Show

In television on 09/28/2009 at 9:38 am

Update Sept. 29: Above is the video of the Friday Tonight Show stunt, in which Conan O’Brien was injured. Ouch. Here are details. But he was back on the job Monday night, playing the video above and promising the audience that if they were good, he’d do it again last night. dd

Oh Conan! Looks like the merry prankster needs to start wearing a helmet. He bonked his head doing a skit Friday for his Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and was taken to a hospital. Concussion, but the NY Daily News and others are carrying a report that it couldn’t dampen his bent sense of humour: “”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 is reported to have said. But is there any fallout? Although I’ve included below the guests as announced in a Sept. 24 press release, the show’s website did not, as of this early Monday morning writing have this week’s guest schedule up. So possibly, Conan and his noggin will be taking the day off? I’ll try to check and get back to  you later today (Monday).
