CBS Will Replace Supergirl and NCIS: LA Episodes Due to Similarities to Paris Attacks

CBS will be replacing this week's episodes of Supergirl and NCIS: Los Angeles due to similarities to Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris.

Supergirl's scheduled episode for Monday featured National City being hit by a series of bombings. Instead, CBS will air an episode about Kara's relationship with her foster mother, which was originally planned to be broadcast on November 23.

Monday's planned episode of NCIS: LA was about the team searching for a teenage girl who was recruited by a terrorist organization. Now, the network will air the December 7 episode about a missing woman connected to Sam Hanna.

Broadcasters have had to make quick decisions about programming due to real-world tragedies before. Most recently, USA delayed the Season 1 finale of Mr. Robot due to similarities with the shooting of news reporters on live television.
