MARCH 13-19, 2019 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Unclear on the concept On Feb. 13, Nina Harris of Kentucky told her husband, Allan, that she wanted tulips for Valentine's Day. As she explains it: "He wasn't paying attention. He just said, 'Yes, I know.' When I got up, I had my first cup of coffee, and he said, 'Oh, your turnips are here.' And I said, 'Turnips?!'" Nina told WPVI TV. Allan's story is slightly sweet- er: "I ... put the turnips in the bucket that says 'I Love You' on it," he said. "I went in there, got her coffee — and here you go!" Allan, who admitted he wasn't really listening when Nina requested tulips, later made it up to her by getting her the flowers and candy and bal- loons. [WPVI, 2/20/2019] Religious rascality Pastor Alph Lukau of Alle- luia International Ministries in Johannesburg, South Africa, is facing lawsuits after a stunt in which he appeared to resurrect a dead man on Feb. 24. Sowetan News reported that a video of the incident shows Lukau placing his hands on the man's stomach as he lay in the coffin, when suddenly the man, identified as Elliott, begins to gasp for air and sits up. "Can you see what hap- pened?" Lukau exclaims in the video. "This man died since Fri- day, he was in the mortuary. ... Devil, I told you wherever I find you I will kick you." Pastor Rochelle Kombou said the hearse driver heard noises coming from the coffin and ran away as soon as they arrived at the church. "I was screaming," she said. "I saw his tongue mov- ing. ... The man of God com- pleted the miracle by praying because prayer is the key." The lawsuits, meanwhile, stem from the misrepresenta- tion of the situation to three funeral parlors, whose services were sought by church officials; a coffin was bought from one and the hearse was hired from another. Prince Mafu, who is representing the funeral homes, said the matter had been re- ported to the Jeppe police sta- tion for further investigation.

Question: Do you think there's a chance a streaming platform will pick up the now canceled "Counterpart?" — Cynthia Matt Roush: I was startled to see "Counterpart" axed so abruptly on the eve of its second-season finale. It may have been a cult hit at best, but a net- work like Starz could use a few more of those. But as with many outlets in this turbulent industry, Starz is undergoing some corporate and executive chang- es, and marginal series tend to become casualties. It's always possible that the producing studio could shop it to a new home — and streaming a show this addictive and dense makes the most sense — but even with J.K. Sim- mons' marvelous dual performance at the core, this may be a tough sell. Question: e season finale of "Mani- fest" showed that Ben, Michaela and Cal would possibly die on 6/2/2024. Tell them not to worry, the show will be canceled by then. — Lino Matt Roush: Funny. Maybe even sooner, since NBC didn't give this one an early renewal. Actually, I expect NBC will give "Manifest" a second season, although I'm not sure it de- serves it. Mediocre in every aspect, the squandered premise of this show is a reminder of why the broadcast networks have such trouble generating buzz anymore. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Celebrity Big Brother" for keeping it short and sweet. e lat- est in CBS's round of famous roomies aired for a tight three weeks of wild eliminations and unexpected alli- ances. One gripe: It would have been nice to see more of Jonathan Bennett and Ryan Lochte's bromance! Jeers to ABC for taking a step back- ward. As much as we love love love Tracee Ellis Ross's Rainbow, the network needs to pass on its poten- tial "Black-ish" prequel about Bow's youth and focus its energy on creat- ing more original characters of color. Besides, there's already the Freeform spinoff, grown-ish. Get some new material.
