Al Roker Missed His Early-Morning Talk Show Because His Phone Alarm Failed

It’s no sharting, but it’s something.

1. For the first time in his career, weather guru Al Roker overslept because his phone alarm didn’t go off and he didn’t have a backup. He missed hosting his show, Wake Up With Al, at 6 a.m. on the Weather Channel.
