CBS pulls ‘Mike & Molly’ finale due to tornado tragedies
CBS postponed the season finale of its comedy “Mike & Molly” in the aftermath of devastating tornadoes that tore through the country’s midsection over the past few days.
The show’s third-season finale dealt 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.
“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 epidsode will air in its place at 9:30 p.m. ET, and the finale will be rescheduled for “an appropriate date.”
