    Conan O'Brien was hit on the head during the taping of his NBC show Friday afternoon, prompting the network to reair the broadcast later in the evening.

    Conan O'Brien was hit on the head during the taping of his NBC show Friday evening, prompting the network to air a rerun of the show rather than the episode that was planned to air that night.

    O'Brien was hit in the head during a stunt while taping the show, a rep from NBC told TMZ Friday.

    "Tonight, NBC will broadcast a repeat of 'The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.' Conan hit his head doing a stunt and and the show was not finished," the rep said.

    O'Brien also issued a statement through NBC saying that he was taking the incident lightly.

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

    O'Brien was examined Friday at a hospital. NBC declined to comment on his condition.
