al roker oversleeps

*For the first time in nearly four decades, Al Roker missed a show because he overslept.

The “Today” show veteran was still knocked out when his 6 a.m. early morning show “Wake Up With Al” began on The Weather Channel.

“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!”
