In light of the tragedy and events in Boston this week, CBS is putting "Vegas" on pause to make room for a "Boston Bombers" news special.

Set to air on Fri., April 19 at 9 p.m. ET, "Boston Bombers" will be hosted by news anchor Scott Pelley. "Vegas," starring Dennis Quaid, will air the following day at 8 p.m. ET.

Additionally, news anchor Elizabeth Vargas will host a special report during ABC's "20/20" slot at 10 p.m. ET live from Boston.

A rep for NBC confirmed that their primetime Friday night lineup -- "Fashion Star" at 8 p.m. and "Grimm" at 9 p.m. -- will air as scheduled.

The CW (which airs new episodes of "Nikita" on Fridays at 8 p.m.)and ABC (which airs two new episodes of "Happy Endings" on Fridays, beginning at 8 p.m.) have not returned The Huffington Post's request regarding any potential scheduling changes.
