In the wake of the deadly tornado that struck the Oklahoma City area, the finale episode of the popular CBS show Mike & Molly has been pulled due to its tornado-themed storyline.
Titled "The Windy City," the finale episode was scheduled to air Monday night and though it does not show any actual damage from a tornado, it does feature the cast of the show revealing important confessions to each other as they wait for a tornado to hit Chicago, where the show is based.
"Due to the tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight's season finale of Mike & Molly, which has a related storyline," a CBS spokesperson said in a statement. "A repeat broadcast of Mike & Molly will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date."
So far, a date for the third season finale of Mike & Molly has yet to be set. However, the sitcom starring Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell has been picked up for a fourth season.
