Today show veteran Al Roker, hit the snooze button one too many times Tuesday.
He completely slept though his 6 a.m. early morning show, Wake Up With Al, on The Weather Channel. It was his first time ever in snoozing through a show.
"After 39 years, it happened," tweeted Roker, 58. "I overslept and missed a show."
He made it in for Today, where he was spotted yawning behind the scenes.
Matt Lauer said, "I tweeted out Rip Van Roker, and I'm getting a lot of tweets back saying a lot of people though it was RIP Al Roker. Read carefully!"
