Something was missing on The Weather Channel's early morning show "Wake Up With Al" today; Al Roker didn't wake up. The Today show veteran said it was the first time in his 39-year career that he had overslept.
After 39 years, it happened. I overslept and missed a show. Missed #WUWA. But will be on time for @today— Al Roker (@alroker) August 6, 2013
Roker posted a Vine of himself yawning on set, and had some fun with the joke, along with some of his NBC colleagues.
