'Tonight Show' Cancels Production After Death of Fallon's Mother

Friday's taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was cancelled due to a private family matter, according to PEOPLE.

"Jimmy Fallon's mother, Gloria, died peacefully on Saturday", a Fallon family spokesperson said in a press statement. On Saturday, his mother Gloria passed away with Fallon by her side. They moved upstate to Saugerties in the Catskills region when Jimmy was 2 years old and his father Jim took a job at IBM.

It is unknown at this point how Gloria's passing will affect The Tonight Show schedule, but here's hoping Fallon can take the time that he needs to grieve this bad loss.

We reached out to Fallon's team.no word back so far. Everybody thought we were boyfriend and girlfriend.


Her son once shared on The Howard Stern Show that she was a nun at one point in her life, for a brief period. When did Sound of Music come out? "I think there was like a thing where everyone wanted to be a nun". The younger Gloria appeared on the late-night staple as part of her brother's game segments.

Fallon, 43, has often talked about his childhood and family.

Tonight, there will be no new Tonight Show.
