The remainder of the Trophée Eric Bompard has been cancelled due to the situation in France

Here's the official statement from the International Skating Union:

ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Event in Bordeaux France cancelled

14 Nov 2015- Bordeaux, France

 

"The Minister of Interior Affairs of France, Bernard Cazeneuve, and the Mayor of Bordeaux, Alain Juppe, have informed the French Figure Skating Federation (FFSG) that the competition at the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating event ”Trophee Eric Bompard 2015” in Bordeaux has to be cancelled due to the state of emergency and national mourning days in France.

The International Skating Union (ISU) has acknowledged the decision.

The International Skating Union and the French Figure Skating Federation express their deepest sympathy to the victims of the despicable terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13."

The short programs were completed in Bordeaux on Friday, hours before the attacks in Paris.

No decision has been taken yet by the ISU regarding how this situation will impact the standings for the Grand Prix Final, although the ISU official on site, Peter Krick, figure skating sports director, has made a recommendation:

"I have just informed (ISU) President [Ottavio] Cinquanta of the decision of the French government. We're sorry for it," Krick said. "I'll propose that the results of the short program provide the basis for the selection to the (Grand Prix) Final, so that the skaters present here are not penalized by having participated in only one Grand Prix. This, however, is only a proposal, as the ISU Council will have to make a formal decision. But I am confident the Council will follow it, so that no one will suffer to have only one Grand Prix event."

The results in each discipline after the short programs can be found here.
