Monday's "Supergirl" episode involved Kara dealing with bombings in National City. The "NCIS" episode involved scenes with the Islamic State recruiting young women.

The Thanksgiving episode of "Supergirl" will air Monday night. A December episode of "NCIS: Los Angeles" will air Monday as well.

CBS' decision comes in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday which left more than 120 dead and several hundred wounded. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Variety reported that NBC decided to air a rerun of the show "Undateable" Friday night out of respect.
