WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM JUNE 10-16, 2020 UCW 51 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Monkey business Egyptian talk show host Lobna Asal abruptly fled the studio mid- interview on May 27 after being at- tacked by the monkey brought to the set by her interview subject, actor Ibrahim El-Samman, United Press International reported. Appearing on Egyptian channel Al Hayat, the mon- key costarred with El-Samman on his latest project, and at first, settled in Asal's lap for several minutes, calmly listening to the conversation, but then jumped down and attacked her legs. As she ran off, another person arrived to wrangle the primate. The allure of junk food San Diego police responding to a burglar alarm at a Wells Fargo bank in Chollas View, California, around 3:30 a.m. on May 27, found a broken window by the bank's drive-thru. Alarm company personnel told of- ficers surveillance cameras showed a man inside the bank's break room, using the microwave. Police gained entry to the bank and arrested the unnamed man, who told KGTV he had gone into the bank only to warm up his Hot Pockets. Asked if the Hot Pockets were worth the arrest, the man said, "Hell yeah, it was worth it." Government in action In 2013, Chad Dearth of Overland Park, Kansas, purchased his dream car, a 1964 Chevy Impala, and got an "antique" license plate for it. Since then, he has sold the car and moved to a new neighborhood, but earlier this year he received word that seven to 10 collection letters a day were ar- riving at his old address from state turnpike authorities up and down the East Coast. That's when Dearth learned that Kansas is one of a few states that assign identical numbers to different categories of specialty license plates, and his old antique plate number matched the number on a commercial semi truck — the one photographed by one of the au- thorities demanding payment for toll violations. Lee Ann Phelps, vehicle services manager for the Kansas Department of Revenue, told Fox4 she doesn't know why the state uses identical numbers, but there are about 625,000 plates in the state that share a number. Kansas has issued a new license for the truck, but in the meantime, the bills continue. Dearth most recently got a letter from the Delaware Turnpike Authority seek- ing $479. Question: Can you tell me why CBS decided not to premiere "e Amazing Race" on May 20? e info I found just says it's been pushed back to later in 2020. e season was filmed over a year ago, why delay airing it? I have been looking forward to it! — Melinda Matt Roush: You're not the only one who was disappointed and wrote in when what would have been the 32nd running of "e Race" was suspended. But the reasoning is solid. CBS decided to make the new season of "e Amaz- ing Race," one of very few entities pro- duced in full before the pandemic shut down production (including a new season of "Survivor"), part of a pro- jected new fall TV schedule, potentially following "Survivor" on Wednesdays. When making this announcement, CBS projected confidence that if and when production resumes later this summer — a big "if," obviously — many of the new and returning series hope to be ready as part of a staggered rollout. Bar- ring that eventuality, at least CBS will have "Race" as one of its anchors. And while I get that fans would love to have the show on right now, it might be even more appreciated as a sure bet this fall when it's possible so much else could be delayed. I'd love CBS's confidence to bear fruit even as early as October, but this virus has a way of dashing such wishful thinking. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to "9-1-1" for not going off the rails with its train-crash episode. Even though Fox's first-responder drama ended Season 3 with an epic, masterfully staged wreck, the hour balanced big thrills with emotional moments centered on a traumatized Athena (Angela Bassett) and the suddenly not-so-single Maddie (Jen- nifer Love Hewitt). Jeers to e History Channel for closing "Project Blue Book." Because it pulled the plug on the fascinating UFO-investigation period piece, Dr. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen) and fans alike will never find out what hap- pened to Quinn (Michael Malarkey) after his encounter with underwater ETs. And that is BS. ARIES - March 21/April 20 Aries, when faced with too many options, you may have difficulty making a final de- cision. is is when you may need to bring in a second opinion.
