“The Tonight Show” has been on a mini hiatus recently, as Jimmy Fallon recovered from an injury. Now that he’s back, he explained in detail what actually happened to him. If you read somewhere that he had broken his finger, you read wrong. The injury was much more serious than that, and he was apparently at risk of losing the finger. He talks about it in the video below, as well as what helped him get through the 10 full days he was in the ICU (repeated viewings of a certain recent teen movie helped) and profusely thanks the various medical staff that got him through it. He even gets a little emotional talking about how he hopes his show cheers up other people who are sick and in hospitals. You can see the whole video below.
