TV personality Ed McMahon

Ed McMahon was recuperating Friday following his third neck surgery.

The 85-year-old former "Tonight" show sidekick previously said he had injured himself in a fall before the possible foreclosure of his multimillion-dollar Beverly Hills house.

"Ed had his third and hopefully final neck surgery today at an L.A. hospital," McMahon's publicist Howard Bragman told The Associated Press on Friday. "He's awake, alert and resting comfortably, and the McMahon family is grateful for all the prayers and good wishes."
