Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is on the shelf following a hand injury that required minor surgery on Friday and forced NBC to cancel a taping of late-night TV's most popular program.
Fallon tweeted on Friday that he tripped and when he caught his fall but his ring caught on the side of a table and "almost ripped my finger off."

"I'm doing well and thanks for good wishes everyone," he tweeted.
He has some built-in recovery time since the show was scheduled to be on hiatus for the next two weeks.
Tonight was supposed to have Benicio Del Toro, Taylor Kitsch and Penn & Teller as guests Friday. NBC is airing a rerun instead.
