Paris Attacks Changes CBS TV Programming
NEW YORK (AP) — CBS is swapping out episodes of two prime-time series on Monday night because of sensitivity concerns following the deadly Paris attacks.
The network said Sunday it will replace an episode of the new series "Supergirl" that was supposed to deal with a bombing. In its place will be an early Thanksgiving episode in which Kara's character suspects her foster mother disapproves of her new role as a superhero.
The network is also shelving an episode of "NCIS: Los Angeles" about recruitment of young women by the Islamic State group. It will be replaced by an episode concerning a missing woman.
Television networks usually scour their schedules in the event of major tragedies to scrub out material that might trigger bad memories for viewers.
