This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Rick Glassman began GUSHING blood after splitting his tongue mere hours before the live season premiere of Undateable! It turns out that, during rehearsal for Friday's episode, the actor started to chow down on a bagel… but accidentally bit his tongue super hard!
Hard enough that he bled. A lot.
With only four hours left before hitting the airwaves, Rick was rushed to the hospital, where he got stitches for his injury! Yikes!
Producers must have been panicking because the comedian — who plays Burski on the hilarious program — supposedly had a large role in the premiere.
However, he was able to make it back to set with an hour left before showtime, but he's on some pain medication that forces him to swallow quite a bit.
Although, he was coherent enough to tweet about his mishap, which is always a good sign! Take a look at what he had to say (below)!
We're wishing him a speedy recovery, but for now it's going to be interesting to see how the episode goes.
