CBS is postponing the season finale of its comedy “Mike & Molly” in the aftermath of devastating tornadoes that hit Oklahoma and other parts of the central United States in the past couple of days.
The show’s third-season finale deals in part with a tornado bearing down on Chicago, which leads Mike (Billy Gardell) and Molly (Melissa McCarthy) to make a couple of big confessions to each other. The network says in a statement that “due to the tragic events in Oklahoma” this afternoon, it’s pre-empting the episode.
A repeat will air in its place at 9:30 p.m. ET, and the finale will be rescheduled for “an appropriate date.”
A huge tornado struck near Oklahoma City early Monday afternoon, leveling buildings and creating a wide swath of damage. The twister follows several others touching down Oklahoma and Kansas over the weekend.
