    (L-R)Actors Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, and Chyler Leigh attend the 2015 CBS Upfront at The Tent at Lincoln Center on May 13, 2015 in New York City. The network has decided to replace an episode of the show slated to air Monday in light of the Paris terror attacks.

    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.
