As you may have read, during the taping of last Friday’s episode of the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, during a sketch in which Conan raced Teri Hatcher into the studio, Conan slipped and hit his head. He was later taken to the hospital and it was revealed that he had a concussion. Yikes! A rerun was aired instead of the episode, for obvious reasons. Jeez Oh Pete, well that is awful. Stupid Teri Hatcher. NBRTH, you guys, Never Be Racing Teri Hatcher. Anyway, Conan was released from the ICU (I am assuming he was in the ICU, using my years of medical training and in-field experience as a basis for my assumptions) and returned to the air last night. However, after the jump is the unaired clip of his horrifying slip and fall. Is that what you want, monsters? Is that what your eyes hunger for?

Yup. He slipped and fell and hit his head, and it looked very painful and dangerous and it is a good thing that his injuries were not more severe. You know, you’re like the creature in Little Shop of Horrors, that is what you are like (you = world). FEED HORRIFYING FOOTAGE OF TERRIBLE THINGS INTO MY FACE HOLES, SEYMOUR (classic quote from the movie, basically). I have to keep doing this just so you won’t eat me. At least not until the very end. Whoops, SPOILER ALERT.

  1. Nope, Audrey II (we) was (were) electrocuted to death at the end of Little Shop of Horrors, and Seymour (Gabe) and Audrey (Conan O’Brien) got married and lived happily ever after. So why do we have to watch this horrible clip of your man getting injured? I don’t want to watch your sick homosexual snuff films. Keep that stuff between you and your ginger man-wife! (What? Sorry.)

  2. I was cringing watching that video because, based on the description, I assumed it was going to be horrifying. And then he slipped and it was like “Ow. That must have hurt.” but no blood and guts so it’s alright. Is that what AnAmPat was talking about when he was talking about violence in movies/TV?

  3. At least Teri Hatcher looks hot.

  4. Consummate professional.

  5. Well I was about to go see my local middle school’s adorable rendition of LSoH, but I guess I CAN’T NOW THANKS A LOT YOU GUYYYZ! First Orphan, now this? It’s like a spoiler factory in here, and I don’t mean the things on cars but that would be Spike TV “Very Masculine.”

  6. “That was so close!” Nice one, Lois. Man hurts his head, and the only thing you can do is give him the Spirit Award.

    Last night Leno made fun of Conan for hitting his head. Something about the intellectual level of the show rising due to Conan’s concussion. Followed it up with an even lamer joke about NBC hosts committing suicide. Expectedly tasteless. I can’t find anything about it online.

  8. Gawker got it:


    I haven’t watched it because Jay Leno.

  9. Worse than the fall for me was his slurring of words after. People smack their heads all the time, and speak normally afterwards, but when he was all, “Lezzeee a sloow-mowshun reeplay of that,” that freaked me out.

  10. He just kept right along with it though. If it was me I wouldn’t have asked for a replay, I would have writhed in pain on the ground for a while.

  11. Conan just took us to how-to-be-an-effing-pro school. While he’s no doubt in terrible pain and apparently pretty dazed, he finished the bit (well, I might add) and even improv’d a little quip about the fall. I’m sure he would have finished the taping if NBC legal guys hadn’t forced him off.
    That’s how you do your job, people. Oh, what’s that? You’ve got a runny nose and might have to take the afternoon off? Too bad. Conan says, “Don’t be such a pussy!”

  12. He’s obviously trained under Richard Belzer.

  13. It was aired on last night’s episode and he talked more about it after showing that clip. It’s really sad/scary/but funny because he is Conan. I don’t know if this works…

  14. I think this happened because the world did not want to see an interview with Seth MacFarlane, who was the second guest. It’s too bad it was at Conan’s expense.

  15. So, Seth MacFarlane sent flowers!? I guess that’s nice of him. I guess. I’ll give him that. He should just stick to being a little more consistently awful.
