MAY 29-JUNE 4, 2019 UCW 27 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Cuteness alert Hugo the dog is a frequent boarder at Happy Tails Pet Hotel and Playland in St. Ann, Missouri. In early May, according to KTVI, Hugo proved how much he loves his pals at the doggy day care: He ran away from home, navigated a busy street and covered more than a mile to get to Happy Tails, where he ran inside to greet his canine friends. [KTVI, 5/9/2019] Rules Are rules Keith Cutler, senior circuit judge of Winchester and Salis- bury in England, had what would seem to be an airtight reason for avoiding jury duty in April: He was scheduled to be the presiding judge for the case. Even so, when Cutler contacted the jury sum- moning bureau to say, "I would be inappropriate, seeing I happened to be the judge and knew all the papers," the bureau refused to excuse him, suggesting he could "apply to the resident judge." Cutler eventually had to call to ex- plain that he is the resident judge, reported The Guardian. He noted that he would have been happy to serve under other circumstances: "I would have liked to have done the jury service to see what it was like and whether I would have liked the judge," he said. [The Guardian, 4/16/2019] Awesome! Cinema's Freddy Krueger has nothing on a winged resident of the Cascavel city zoo in Brazil. The Amazonian parrot started his life at the zoo about four years ago, after being shot in the upper beak during a raid at a drug den, which disfigured his face and earned him the name Freddy Krueger, report- ed The Guardian. In April, Freddy survived being bitten on the leg by a (nonvenomous) snake, which resulted in profuse bleeding. Just days later, armed thieves broke into the zoo and stole Freddy, along with another parrot and a cylinder of gas. But true to Fred- dy's form, the parrot made his way back to the zoo, where veterinar- ian Ilair Dettoni speculated that Freddy's deformities may have made him less desirable to the thieves. "I don't know if Freddy is really unlucky or really lucky," he said. The other parrot and the gas cylinder have not been located.

Question: What happened to "Dancing with the Stars" on ABC? — Joyce Matt Roush: e network held "Danc- ing" back because of "American Idol's" increased presence on the midseason schedule, but it will be back in the fall. No one wanted a replay of the four- week all-athlete condensed spring sea- son, which left many fans dissatisfied. Question: Will there be a season three for "e Orville"? And are there dates for the next seasons of "Orange Is the New Black" and "Lost in Space"? — Aaron Matt Roush: Fox just renewed "e Orville" for a third season. It's not on their new 2019 Fall schedule, so it will likely have a midseason premiere. My own calendar shows a projected late July premiere date for the seventh and final season of "Orange Is the New Black," which I don't think has been confirmed or announced yet. No word yet on whether "Lost in Space" will be back later this year or early next. Question: e male star of "Ransom" and one of the male stars in "e Fix" look alike to me. Are they twins? — Shelley Matt Roush: Besides the fact that Luke Roberts (star of "Ransom") and Adam Rayner (Matthew on "e Fix") share many handsome physical at- tributes, I'm not aware of any connec- tion between them. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Jeers to "e Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" for going to the dogs. Usually, we're all about the Bravo ladies' pack mentality, but their bitch- ing about Dorit dumping a pooch and Lisa seemingly leaking the story has us ready to be put down. Cheers to "Jeopardy!" for finding a winning way to keep us tuning in. With his $1 million-plus run and often off-putting demeanor, contes- tant James Holzhauer has — without question — given the game-show staple some real buzz.
