Even Al Roker can’t stand to watch The Today Show these days.

With ratings for this NBC staple shrinking by the day, everyone’s favorite weatherman made history this morning: he overslept!

Roker subsequently missed his "Wake Up with Al” segment on The Weather Channel, but made it to the Today set in time to be mocked by his co-anchors.

Al Roker Explains Today Show Absence

“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.

Of course, this is merely the second most embarrassment incident of Roker’s career. In January, he admitted to once pooping his pants at The White House.

There’s also been chatter in the past that Roker is trying to sabotage Today, but if 5:41 a.m. is over-sleeping, we can likely cut the guy some slack.
