CBS Pulls Mike & Molly Tornado-Themed Finale From Monday Line-Up
CBS has replaced tonight’s Mike & Molly season finale — which discuses a tornado hitting Chicago — in light of the real-life twisters touching down in the Midwest.
The episode did not contain any footage of the storm’s damage, EW.com reports, but a repeat will be shown in its place.
“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 tells TVLine. “A repeat broadcast of ‘Mike & Molly will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date.“
According to the finale’s synopsis, a tornado bearing down on the Windy City leads Mike and Molly to confess important secrets to each other.
