CBS has made the decision to pull an episode of “Mike and Molly” due to the terrible storms that hit Oklahoma and the storm content that would have taken place on the show. This would have been the season finale of the series, which takes place in Chicago.
The exact same thing happened to “American Dad” and “Family Guy” on FOX last year. Making us ask the question why shows still have a storm-related show in a time-period when these storms devastate cities? CBS confirmed the cancellation of the episode earlier today (Monday) and that it would pre-empt the episode, named “Windy City”. A repeat of the show will air instead of the season finale.
“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 released today. “A repeat broadcast of ‘Mike & Molly’ will run in the time period. The season finale will be broadcast at an appropriate date.“
