    The IFC network has postponed an episode of its new comedy series "Documentary Now!" that was supposed to air this week out of sensitivity to the on-air shootings of two Virginia television journalists.

    The episode that was scheduled to air Thursday parodies HBO's Vice News and features Fred Armisen and Bill Hader portraying journalists killed on camera. IFC said Friday that the episode will instead air next week.

    It was the second entertainment show delayed because of Wednesday's shootings. USA put off for a week the season finale of its "Mr. Robot" drama because it contained a graphic scene similar to the killings.

    The delayed "Mr. Robot" episode will also air next week.
