(Feb. 27) - Former 'Tonight Show' staple Ed McMahon has been in the hospital for almost a month, and TMZ reports the 85-year-old star is in "extremely serious" condition.
"It's not great, to say the least," a TMZ source said.
McMahon, the longtime sidekick to Johnny Carson on 'The Tonight Show,' has been hospitalized for nearly a month with pneumonia and other medical problems, his spokesman said Friday.
Hollywood publicist Howard Bragman said McMahon, who turns 86 next week, is currently in the intensive care unit of an undisclosed hospital.
"It's serious. He's an 85-year old man with a number of medical issues going on," Bragman told Reuters.
He said one of McMahon's medical problems is pneumonia, but he declined to confirm or deny an online report from the TV show "Entertainment Tonight" that the performer also had been diagnosed with bone cancer.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Ed, I loved watching the Johnny Carson show."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James
