Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen many TV networks make some decisions on the fly in response to the terrible events in Paris. “Undateable” went off the air, and CBS decided over the weekend that they were going to change “Supergirl” and “NCIS: Los Angeles” episodes out for other ones. The originally-scheduled installments will now air in a week.
TNT is the latest network to make a decision with Paris in mind, deciding Monday night that they have pushed back the latest episode of “Legends” starring Sean Bean for one week out of respect and sensitivity. This episode was actually set in Paris, so we can certainly understand the move. Here is what the network had to say in a statement on the subject:
“As a result of the recent tragic events in Paris, tonight’s originally scheduled episode of Legends has been postponed … Our thoughts and condolences are with the victims and their families.”
There is no word yet on if the network will air another episode in its place, but judging from the way in which the network described the statement, we imagine that the show will just be pushed back a week and none will air tonight. At the moment, there are not any other known sweeping changes coming in for Monday night in the wake of everything that transpired. This is something that we will be keeping a close watch on, though, and we will have some other news on the subject soon. (TNT is still planning to air “Major Crimes” tonight.)
As we have said ever since the news of the attack first broke, our thoughts and hearts go out to everyone who is still suffering from everything that happened. This is not going to be a quick recovery, but hopefully it will become easier over time.
