The long-time host posted Sunday night on Twitter that he won't be hosting the show Monday night because he needs to spend time with his ailing father.
Bergeron thanked fans for all their support and said he would share their "lovely' tweets with his father.
I'm on a plane reading all of your lovely tweets which I'll share with my Dad. They are deeply appreciated. Thank you.— Tom Bergeron (@Tom_Bergeron) October 5, 2015
