In Light of the Paris Terrorist Attacks, NBC Scraps Tonight’s Live Undateable
Up until about four hours ago, the producers and stars of NBC’s Undateable Live were preparing to broadcast two live episodes (one for the East Coast, one for the West Coast) tonight.
But then the tragic events in Paris began to unfold, with at least 100 people dead, according to recent reports. NBC and the people behind Undateable Live decided that it no longer felt right for the show to go on. (After announcing the news, the show’s cast uploaded the above photo to Twitter.)
Instead, NBC will air a repeat Undateable at 8/7c tonight. Later, at 10/9c, the previously scheduled Dateline NBC will be replaced with a live episode detailing the latest updates from Paris. (Another live edition will be produced for the Pacific time zone.)
As executive producer Bill Lawrence tweeted, “No live comedy tonight. Not a funny day.
