The 9/11 example always comes up... but that was a world of difference, and I don't just mean because of the kind of tragedy it was. I mean, because people who were doing live (or at least recorded live daily) shows didn't want to come to work... same as you or I might not have back then... so they didn't even make shows that week... say like David Letterman, who was based in NY at the time... and nobody on that staff wanted to make a funny show that week, so they didn't... and that was fine to me. They didn't make shows and then not air them... that would have been weird... they just didn't make shows. I get shutting down production... so... like maybe production companies this week shut down for a day or two or the week so maybe a few weeks from now we get a skipped week/repeat episode because they are a week behind schedule due to people taking time off from the tragedy this week. THAT would make all the world of sense to me and I wouldn't question anyone on that. But stuff that's already made... you might as well show it. Let people decide if they want to watch or record or just ignore it entirely... Waiting a week is like implying that ok today it's too much, but next week seeing that violent scene won't remind you of what just happened and who you personally lost a week ago, right? Who are they kidding? And you know, next week's explanation will be that "the show needs to go on..." and I agree with that... so why not let it go on as scheduled now. Stuff that happens live or daily, broadway shows, concerts... all that stuff where people just couldn't deal with it after yesterday... I'm 100% behind them canceling all that stuff if the people working on it want to do that.
