Out of respect for the victims of the Paris terrorist attacks, CBS has altered their primetime programming.

A new Supergirl, titled "How Does She Do It?", was to air on Monday night, but the hour-long episode would have revolved around "a series of bombings" that hit the city. Instead, CBS has decided to air a Thanksgiving-themed episode, "Livewire."

Following the attacks, ET reported that U2 canceled its concert, which HBO was going to air on Saturday night. "We watched in disbelief and shock at the unfolding events in Paris and our hearts go out to all the victims and their families across the city tonight," the band said in a statement. "We are devastated at the loss of life at the Eagles of Death Metal concert and our thoughts and prayers are with the band and their fans. And we hope and pray that all of our fans in Paris are safe."

During this weekend's Saturday Night Live, Cecily Strong kicked off the sketch show with a moving tribute to the victims the attacks. "Paris is the city of lights," she began. "And here in New York City, we know that light will never go out. Our love and support is with everyone there tonight. We stand with you."
