Entertainment Weekly reported Monday that CBS pulled a tornado-themed season finale of "Mike & Molly" due to the devastation in Oklahoma.

“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,” CBS said in a statement. “A repeat broadcast of 'Mike & Molly' will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date.”

The episode, which was scheduled to air Monday night, was called "Windy City."

Here's the episode description (via USA Today):

Mike and Carl get stuck working at the Renaissance Faire after their boss, Patrick, gets dumped by Mike's mother. Later, as a tornado descends on Chicago, Mike and Molly each confess important news to each other.

The show also said on Twitter that CBS will air a repeat episode instead.
