WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2021 UCW 19 WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication 'Tis the Season Cobb County (Georgia) Superior Court Judge Robert Leonard has, with tongue firmly in cheek, banned the Elf on the Shelf from his county, United Press International reported. Leonard said the elf poses "a risk to the emotional health and well-being of Cobb's young children." He tweeted that his order was a "gift to tired parents" because "When these Elves do not move, it leaves our children of tender years in states of extreme emotional distress." But for those families who love their elves, carry on: There will be no charges. News You Can Use This month, as four astronauts prepare to leave the International Space Station, they'll have an extra "load" to carry, the Associated Press reported. The SpaceX capsule that will bring them back to Earth has a broken toilet, so the two NASA astronauts and one each from France and Japan will be wearing what NASA calls "absorbent undergarments" for 20 hours. "Spaceflight is full of lots of little challenges," said NASA astronaut Megan McArthur. "We're not too worried about it." Surprise! Emily Johnson of Vacaville, California, didn't think it was time to go to the hospital when her contractions were 10 min- utes apart — but then they quickly started coming faster, and as Emily and her husband headed to the car, she knew it was too late. "I'm going to be here. This is my spot," she said to her husband, Michael, according to KCRA-TV. Em- ily's mom, Kristy Sparks, was with the couple and helped Emily deliver baby Thomas on the lawn just as rescue crews pulled up to the scene. "By the time they walked up to me, I had a baby in my arms crying," Sparks said. "It was unreal." Bonus: Emily will always be able to relive the scene because the entire event was caught on her doorbell camera. (Fortu- nately, Emily noted, she was facing away from the camera.) Question: What has become of "is Is Us?" Will it return in January? — Rachel Matt Roush: While this may seem obvious to many, it's a fact that TV scheduling is often confusing. In this case, it was known early on that NBC was holding "is Is Us" till midsea- son, in part so the show could air straight through to the end without significant interruption. e networks haven't officially announced many dates yet for the 2022 midseason, but you can count on "is Is Us' to return to Tuesdays, probably in January, once "La Brea wraps." And it will be the show's final season, which was always the plan. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to: tvinsider.com. By Damian Holbrook Cheers to the Newbies on "e Morning Show." is just in: Our favorite additions to Apple TV+'s soapy look at a.m. infotainment wars are Greta Lee's sharp network boss Stella Bak and Julianna Margulies' seasoned journalist Laura Pe- terson. Honestly, fired host Mitch (Steve Carell) would have been toast if these two had been on staff last season. Jeers to "Invasion" for drag- ging its feet. e Apple TV+ sci-fi drama devoted three drowsy episodes to stories that likely won't matter when the ETs arrive...if they ever do! Jeers to "Y: e Last Man's" cancellation. It took more than a decade of development to bring Brian K. Vaughan's graphic novels about a global plague to TV, and yet FX abruptly pulled the plug on the FX on Hulu, Diane Lane–led adaptation after seven episodes and before the Nov. 1 finale.
