WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM APRIL 1-7, 2020 UCW 17 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Update News of the Weird reported in July 2017 about Jeff Reitz of Huntington Beach, Califor- nia, who at that time had just achieved his 2,000th visit to Dis- neyland in Anaheim. Since then, Reitz, 47, has continued his daily visits — until March 13, when Disney closed its theme parks in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Reitz was just short of 3,000 visits, The Orange County Register reported, at 2,995. "The streak's been ended," Reitz said. He does not plan to continue his consecutive streak when the park reopens. "On the negative side, I didn't get to choose the end," he said. "But on the positive side, I didn't have to choose the end." While he's practicing social isolation, Reitz plans to watch some mov- ies on ... you guessed it, Disney Plus. People are good Just a few hours after Harris County, Texas, declared that all bars and nightclubs would have to close on March 16, an anony- mous diner at Irma's Southwest restaurant in downtown Hous- ton did their best to help out. The customer, who left a $9,400 tip, wrote on the receipt: "Hold tip to pay your guys over the next few weeks." United Press Inter- national said Irma's will split the tip among the employees, giving them each about $300. Awesome! When Alexandria Miller, 28, of Chicago, Illinois, won a two- inch goldfish at a carnival in July 2018, she assumed he would stay the same size. But since then, Gerald the goldfish has grown to be 12 inches long, and Miller has spent $1,300 upgrading his tanks to accommodate him (she's al- ready looking for a bigger one). And, The Mirror reported, Ger- ald is not shy about getting his needs met. "He does lay around a lot, but it seems when he's bored or hungry, he jumps out of the water and likes to grab the thermometer inside his tank," Miller said. "He'll click it against the glass till he's got our atten- tion." But, she went on, "If I put a smaller fish in there with him, he will eat them." Question: Why are some season finales in March instead of May? — Rodney Matt Roush: ere are several factors behind early spring finales of certain shows: shorter episode orders, which could be either a creative or economic decision, and/or fewer repeats meaning that some shows that might once have stretched out their run into May now end sooner. e networks are also into sharing time periods during midseason, which either interrupts a show's run by trying out a new series in its time slot or ending the season earlier than be- fore. While there still exists a traditional broadcast-network season from late September to mid-May, the networks are a lot less tied to this timetable than they once were. Question: "Year of the Rabbit" on IFC had me laughing out loud. Can you tell me anything about it? — Lorna Matt Roush: is Victorian era detec- tive spoof really is a hoot. Some epi- sodes are available on IFC's website; it ran through March 25 on Wednesdays. e six-episode series first aired in the UK last summer, and its star Matt Berry can also be seen in FX's uproarious vampire comedy "What We Do in the Shadows,"returning for a second season on April 15. Best news: "Rabbit" has been picked up for a second year. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Little Fires Everywhere" for reigniting our love for Kerry Washing- ton. As cagey boho artist Mia in Hulu's adaptation of Celeste Ng's novel, the "Scandal" vet paints an unvarnished portrait of a mom afraid of losing her daughter to a Donna Reedish suburban- ite (Reese Witherspoon) who is every- thing she's not. But to us, Kerry, you are everything. Jeers to "e Bachelor: Women Tell All" for screaming out of both sides of its face. After two hours of Peter's exes mean-girling one another, ABC's shrill- est reunion show ever then brought out ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay to emotionally address the show's abusive online trolls. So it's only OK if they do it on camera? ARIES - March 21/April 20 ings are not always what they seem, Aries. Keep this in mind when dealing or work ing w ith people you have never met.
