It has happened to the best of us and now it has finally happened to Al Roker. For the first time in 39 years, the co-host of the "Today" show overslept on Tuesday morning and missed "Wake Up with Al" on the Weather Channel.

Roker tweeted his fumble, which prompted a slew of retweets and good-natured jabs at the famous weather man -- some of which came from his own co-workers at the "Today" show.

Check out "Today's" compilation of reaction below:
