'Mike And Molly' Finale: Tornado-Themed Episode Pulled In Wake Of Oklahoma Tragedy

CBS Pulls 'Mike & Molly' Tornado-Set Finale

CBS has pulled the "Mike & Molly" finale, titled "Windy City," from the Monday, May 20 schedule.

The comedy's Season 3 finale features a tornado descending on Chicago.

"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."

Here's the official description of the "Mike & Molly" finale from CBS:

Mike and Carl get stuck working at the Renaissance Faire after their boss, Patrick, gets dumped by Mike’s mother. Later, as a tornado descends on Chicago, Mike and Molly each confess important news to each other. Gerald McRaney guest stars as Police Captain Patrick Murphy, Mike’s boss. Jim Beaver guest stars as Dwight.

CBS recently renewed "Mike & Molly" for a 22-episode Season 4, but did not schedule it for the fall. The comedy starring Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell as the titular characters will likely return midseason.

"Mike & Molly " airs Mondays at 9:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
