There will be no new episodes of The Tonight Show this week, after NBC announced today that they are shutting down production for a few days as Jimmy Fallon mourns the death of his mother.
Fallon, of course, had been bedside with his 68-year-old mother Gloria before she passed away on Saturday after being quite ill for some time, according to reports.
And earlier today, Fallon himself shared a very simple, but poignant, sentiment about the death of his mother (below):
"Today I lost my biggest fan."
Ugh. Tears. So, so painful -- especially considering she was just 68 years old.
No word yet on when exactly Fallon may be back on air with new episodes, but obviously it's more important to take care of family and mourn the passing of someone so close to him.
Other entertainers have obviously felt the same way as they shared the love today (below):
Mom is the first audience and the best. Remembering Jimmy Fallon and his family in our prayers today.

Jimmy's mom was full of energy, fun, a hearty laugh & twinkle in her eye. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. Love to all the Fallons

Sad, unfortunate stuff.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jimmy.

For the past month or so, ever since a powerful piece was published in the New York Times, we've been talking an awful lot about Harvey Weinstein.
And that's because dozens and dozens of women have come forward to accuse Harvey of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape.
A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken out against Weinstein, and actresses like Rose McGowan and Paz de la Huerta have claimed that he raped them.
These are just a few examples of the women who have told their stories.
And now it's Uma Thurman's turn ... well, almost.
In an amazing little clip that's gone viral this weekend, Uma spoke to Access Hollywood at a press event for a Broadway show she's starring in called The Parisian Woman.
The reporter asked her, as "a powerful woman in film," what she thought about "women speaking out about inappropriate behavior in the work place."
While she's being asked this, you can sort of see the rage build up -- it's pretty intense, to say the least.
"I think it's commendable," Uma began, then she paused for a moment before telling the reporter that she didn't have "a tidy soundbite" for her.
"I have learned ... I am not a child, and I have learned that when I've spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself," she said.
"So I've been waiting to feel less angry. And when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say."
It sounds like a pretty tame statement, seeing it in text, but you have to watch the way she delivers it -- it's clear that she really is very, very angry, and that she definitely has a story of her own to tell.
It makes sense that her story would be about Weinstein, too -- he's acted as producer on several films of hers, including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies.
And it also makes sense that people really want to hear her story, because really, she just sounds furious even when alluding to it.
Actress Asia Argento, one of those many women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault, tweeted this video of Uma, and she wrote "Dear #UmaThurman may peace be with you and your soul. We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding."
The rest of Twitter loved Uma's statement just as much.
"God once spoke through the burning bush," one person wrote. "This time it's through Uma Thurman."
Another speculated that "If you haven't seen this yet it seems Uma Thurman not only knows where the bodies are buried, but has neatly organized all the shovels."
"Ok let's be real that Uma Thurman video -- she's getting a Hanzo sword made and is going to cut up the perverts isn't she," one person said.
And hey, if she did, would anyone be surprised?
Check out Uma being completely amazing in the video below:
I do not know if that outfit is some sort of natural optical illusion, but it makes Demi Rose look like she is one of the few people in the world to be as wide as she is...
Too hot to handle is a fitting phrase to use in regards to Pamela Burgos, but it feels a little odd since I would very much like to handle her.
So last night, Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live.
It should have been a wonderful opportunity for some solid Bernie Sanders sketches, and he did do a Bernie impersonation at one point, but that's not what people are talking about.
Nope, instead people are focusing on his opening monologue.
Specifically the segment during the monologue in which he made a few Holocaust jokes.
He kicks off the bit by saying that he's "always been obsessed with women," and "I've often wondered, if I'd grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking out women in the camp?"
The audience started laughing nervously, and he answered his own question with "I think I would."
"The problem is," he continued, "there are no good opening lines in a concentration camp."
"How's it going?" he asked an imaginary women in this wacky scenario. "They treating you OK? You know, if we ever get out of here, I'd love to take you out for some latkes. You like latkes?"
When the line didn't land -- for the audience, too, but mostly for that imaginary lady -- he said "What, what'd I say? Is it me, or is it the whole thing?"
From there, Larry wrapped up the monologue and went into the typical "We got a great show tonight ..." SNL thing.
But, thanks to the internet, that certainly would not be the last we heard of those jokes.
"I'm not a Jew," one person tweeted, "but I'm low-key offended by Larry David's holocaust jokes on #SNL. Not cool."
"I can't believe they did jokes about a concentration camp I just can't believe what I just saw it will never be okay to do," another wrote.
Some people used a popular hashtag, #ReallyMakesMeCringe, to express their feelings about the monologue, for example "#ReallyMakesMeCringe when we have people denying the holocaust & Larry David opens the door for them to think it's fine to joke about."
There were a lot of photos shared of actual women in concentration camps to really drive home the point that the joke was offensive.
"Comedy does NOT mean everything can be funny," someone stated. "Always wrong to joke about the Holocaust, even if you're Jewish."
Which is another thing -- Larry is Jewish himself, so many people believe that he had the right to make those jokes.
"Don't get why non-Jews think their opinions matter on whether or not Larry David is allowed to reference the holocaust in his jokes," one such person tweeted.
Another explained that "If anyone is upset with Larry David's holocaust jokes on SNL they are likely not Jewish. Comedy can help people deal with tragedy."
So was he offensive, or does he have the right to make jokes like this?
Does anyone have the right to make jokes like this?
