Mike & Molly's Tornado Themed Season Finale Pulled From The Air

mike and molly season finale pulled tornado

Aw, what an unfortunate coincidence.

In the wake of yesterday's devastating tornado, CBS execs decided to pull the season finale of Mike & Molly (starring the ever lovely Melissa McCarthy) from Monday night's schedule, as the episode featured a (fictional) tornado hitting Chicago.

A CBS spokesperson said in a statement:

"Due to the tragic events [Monday] afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight's season finale of Mike & Molly, which has a related storyline. A repeat broadcast of Mike & Molly will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date."

Obviously, the network heads felt it would be insensitive to air the episode mere hours after a tornado ripped through parts of Oklahoma…

Classy move, CBS!

    This is an unfortunate incident but when some fartknockers from online doctor a Family Guy episode you're ready to hold Seth MacFarlane over a fire? You're nothing but a hypocritical douchebag.

    My condolences goes out to the ones affected by the tornadoes , that being said I don't see the relevancy here. Unless Mike and Molly was actually based in Oklahoma they should have aired it anyways. But that's just me

    How can it be "pulled" from the air if it never aired?
    Pulled from the scheduling maybe.
