(USA TODAY) -- CBS is pulling tonight's season finale of Mike & Molly, which contains a tornado plot, after a devastating tornado struck Oklahoma today.

A mile-wide tornado caused widespread damage in Oklahoma City and its suburbs Monday afternoon.

"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," the network 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 pre-empted episode of the third-season romantic comedy, which is set in Chicago, is called Windy City.

The episode description states: "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."
