CBS is rescheduling episodes of “Supergirl” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” in light of the recent terrorist attacks on Paris, France.

The network announced on Monday (Nov. 16) that the two episodes originally scheduled to air have been replaced with other original episodes instead. The decision was made due to the sensitive subject matter and how they may correlate with the recent events that transpired in France on Friday (Nov. 13).

The “Supergirl” episode, titled “How Does She Do It?,” found Kara faced with a plague of bombings in National City. The episode is to be replaced by “Livewire,” a Thanksgiving-themed episode originally scheduled to air on November 23rd.

As for the “NCIS: Los Angeles” installment, “Defectors” was to follow a story about young women recruited by ISIS, which is the terror group that took responsibilities for the recent attacks that left over 100 dead. An episode titled “The Long Goodbye” — originally set to air in December — will be put in its place and will follow a story of a missing woman.

The move comes after NBC’s decision on Friday to cancel the live taping of the comedy “Undateable,” having the cast and crew sharing their support for the victims in the Paris attacks online.
