CBS made some changes to its TV schedules in light of the recent coordinated attacks in Paris on Friday, Nov. 13. Episode 4 of “Supergirl” has been delayed. The episode, which was supposed to air on Monday, has been replaced with another episode instead.

Episode 4 of “Supergirl,” titled “How Does She Do It?,” has been pushed to a different air date. A CBS representative informed TV Line that the decision was made “out of sensitivity and respect to the events that occurred” in Paris last week.

According to Supergirl TV, “How Does She Do It” may be considered insensitive in light of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, since the episode centres around bombings throughout National City. CBS has instead scheduled “Livewire” to air on Monday. The Thanksgiving-themed episode was originally slated for release next week. An episode guide on “Supergirl” has listed Nov. 23 as the new air date of episode 4.

To make up for the sudden change in its TV schedules, CBS has released a special preview of “Livewire.” It also includes special footage for future episodes of “Supergirl.”

“Kara’s Thanksgiving may be ruined when she suspects her foster mother, Dr. Danvers (Helen Slater), who is coming to town, disapproves of her new role as a superhero. Also, when an accident transforms a volatile CatCo employee into the villainous Livewire, she targets Cat (Calista Flockhart) and Supergirl,” a synopsis for “Livewire” reads, as posted on Supergirl TV.

CBS is not the only TV network that changed its schedules of TV airings in light of the Paris attacks. According to Variety, on Nov. 13, NBC also cancelled its live episode of “Undateable."

“To our fans, friends & family: we love you. And we love to make you laugh. Tonight we will not air out of respect for our friends in Paris,” the show’s writers and cast members said via the official Twitter page of Undateable Writers, expressing their support for the victims and their families. The cast and crew also shared a photo that shows them holding papers printed with peace signs that highlight the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
