Jimmy Fallon Cancels Tonight Show Tapings As He Mourns The Death Of His Mother

The Tonight Show will not tape during the week of Nov. 6 as host Jimmy Fallon mourns the loss of his mother.

According to Us Weekly, live tapings of the NBC late night show have been canceled, from Monday, Nov. 6 to Friday, Nov. 10, 2017. The network has announced that repeat episodes will air instead.

"Today I lost my biggest fan," Fallon, 43, said in a statement, shortly after his mother's death over the weekend.

"On behalf of everyone at NBC, we extend our deepest condolences to Jimmy and all his family at this time of enormous loss," his show's network released 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."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Fallon's mother, Gloria, "died peacefully" at the age of 68 on Saturday, Nov. 4. "Jimmy was at his mother's bedside, along with her loved ones, when she passed away at NYU Langone Medical Center in NYC," a family representative announced in a statement. "Our prayers go out to Jimmy and his family as they go through this tough time." Just one day before, Fallon had canceled a taping of his show due to a family emergency

The Saturday Night Live alum often spoke about his close relationship with his mother. In May 2017, he even shared a sweet story about her as a part of the Tonight Show's #MomQuotes segment. "My mom and I were talking on the phone for the third time that day," he tweeted. "And she actually said, 'We don't talk enough.'"

Our thoughts are with the Fallon family during this difficult time.
