Al Roker had a rough start on Tuesday when he accidentally overslept for the first time in 39 years.
Roker said that his phone just didn't go off, and that he did not have a backup alarm because he never needed one.
"Did you miss 'Wake Up With Al' this morning?" Lauer asked, referring to Roker's 6:00 a.m. show on The Weather Channel.
"Yeah we changed the name to 'Al, Wake Up!'" Roker quipped.
Coincidentally, Roker poked fun at "Today" guest host Mel B for being late just last week. He compared the former Spice Girl to Katie Couric, who was sometimes called out for arriving late when she co-hosted "Today."
