‘Supergirl’ & ‘NCIS: LA’ Terrorism-Themed Episodes Replaced After Paris Attacks

CBS has opted not to air the episodes of Supergirl and NCIS: Los Angeles originally scheduled for tomorrow, Nov. 17. Other original episodes will air instead. The move was made out of sensitivity to the events in Paris as the world is still reeling from the gruesome terrorist attacks that took the lives of 129 people and left more than 300 injured.

Unwritten RuleThe benched Supergirl episode, “How Does She Do It?,” had Kara dealing with bombings in the fictional National City. In place of that episode will be “Livewire,” a Thanksgiving-themed installment originally slated for November 23.

The NCIS: Los Angeles storyline of “Defectors” revolved around a ISIS recruitment, the terror organization which has taken responsibilities for the Paris attacks. In its place will be “The Long Goodbye,” an episode centering on Eric Christian Olsen’s Deeks character, originally set for December.

ABC’s terrorism drama Quantico will air tonight as scheduled. Showtime’s similarly-themed Homeland, which is set in France’s neighboring Germany, also is running its planned episode tonight.

NBC of Friday, the day of the attacks, canceled the live episode of comedy Undateable, with the cast and writers posting messages in support to the victims in Paris.
