Conan O'Brien will be back after hitting head




Conan O'Brien

is supposed to be back on the Tonight Show this evening, despite his best efforts to crack his head open like a giant egg.

The late-night host hit his head on Friday while performing a stunt for his show, the AP reports, although NBC wouldn't elaborate what that may have been. His show that night, which was scheduled to feature Teri Hatcher and Seth MacFarlane, was canceled.

"Conan is resting comfortably at home. He is expected to return to work on Monday," the network said in a statement.

Drew Barrymore and jockey Joe Talamo are supposed to be on tonight, and who would want to miss that?

"Last thing I remember I was enjoying the play with Mrs. Lincoln, and the next thing I knew I was in bed being served cookies and juice," O'Brien said in another statement.

If only he could have gotten Khloe Kardashian's wedding to L.A. Laker Lamar Odom.
