NBC and “Undateable” opted to cancel Friday’s live episode of the show in the wake of terrorist attacks in Paris that resulted in more than 100 deaths.

“To our fans, friends & family: We love you. And we love to make you laugh. Tonight we will not air out of respect for our friends in Paris,” the show’s writers tweeted. They also posted the above photo of the cast and crew holding peace signs featuring the outline of the Eiffel Tower.

NBC scheduled a repeat of the show in its place. The network also  will devote the 10 p.m. “Dateline” to coverage of the attacks, with updates for the West Coast airing.

ABC’s “20/20” and “Nightline” will also cover the situation in Paris.
