After a taping of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” had already been canceled last Friday, so that the host could be by his mother’s side in the hospital, the tv show will not air this week. Gloria Fallon passed away on Saturday at the age of 68.
Reruns will air this week in place of new episodes.
“On behalf of everyone at NBC, we extend our deepest condolences to Jimmy and all his family at this time of enormous loss,” NBC explained in a statement. “Our hearts go out to Jimmy and everyone else whose lives were so touched by Gloria Fallon’s love, kindness and support.”
Fallon stated that he lost his “biggest fan.”
