Al Roker Oversleeps, Misses Morning Show

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Al Roker overslept and missed a morning show for the first time ever on Tuesday.


The usually reliable TV personality slept too late to host “Wake Up with Al” on the Weather Channel, eventually making it to the “Today” show in time to be mocked by his co-anchors.

“After 39 years, it happened. I overslept and missed a show. Missed #WUWA. But will be on time for @today,” tweeted an embarrassed Roker at 5:41 a.m.

Later, while yawning at the “Today” desk, he tweeted a Vine video (see below), writing, “Morning, Sleepyhead. Overslept and missed #wuwa Here on time for TODAY.”

Check out his recap of the early morning drama below!
