The reason given for the postponement was out of respect for those who were injured in Wednesday’s shooting. Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and three others were shot when a gunman opened fire at a Republican congressional baseball practice.

President Donald Trump and Melania Trump both visited the hospital where Scalise remains in critical condition Wednesday night following surgery after being shot in the hip.

There is no word yet when the episode will air.
