CBS Postpones 'Mike & Molly' Season Finale in Wake of Oklahoma Tornado Tragedy
In the episode, Mike and Molly, played by Bill Gardell and Melissa McCarthy, are stuck at a Renaissance Faire as a tornado approaches Chicago. Out of respect to the victims, CBS decided to air a re-run of Mike & Molly last night in the episode's place. "Due to tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight's season finale of Mike & Molly, which has a related storyline," CBS said in a statement.
Right now it is unclear when CBS will air the finale, saying only that it will wait until "an appropriate date."
CBS recently picked up Mike & Molly for a fourth season, however it did not place the show on the schedule at its upfront presentation last week, saying the show would come back sometime during midseason.
