CBS wisely shelved last night's episode of Mike and Molly.

Even though it was the season finale, the network said it was going to air it last night. 

“Due to the tragic events this afternoon in Oklahoma, we are pre-empting tonight’s season finale of Mike & Mollywhich has a related storyline," CBS said in a statement.

The season closer featured a tornado hitting Chicago.

Here's the official description for the finale: "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."

Instead, a Mike & Molly repeat will air in its place. The season finale will be broadcast "at an appropriate date."
