CBS Pulls Two Terrorism-Themed Programs

Nov 16, 2015  •  Post A Comment

CBS is pulling two shows from its prime-time lineup in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris. The Washington Post reports that the network will pull the episodes of “Supergirl” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” it had scheduled for tonight.

“The network didn’t specify the reason, but the descriptions of both ring similar to the horrific killings in France that left 129 people dead,” the paper notes.

The planned “Supergirl” episode had Kara trying to stop a series of bombings. In its place the network will move up the show’s Thanksgiving episode, which was originally set for Nov. 23.

“NCIS: LA” is also moving its scheduled Nov. 23 episode into tonight’s slot, replacing an episode focusing on a girl recruited by a terrorist group.

Other TV programming has also been impacted by the Paris attacks, including the cancellation of a U2 concert that was planned over the weekend in Paris, which HBO had planned to televise live.

CBS has not announced plans to air the “Supergirl and “NCIS: LA” episodes that had been scheduled for tonight.
