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.
He did make it in time for his gig on the Today show.
Today show host Matt Lauer rose to the occasion.
Roker has admitted to worse before, like the time he pooped his pants at the White House.
