In the season three finale, "Windy City," Molly (Melissa McCarthy) gives Mike (Billy Gardell) his boss' personal belongings, from Peggy.

After being pulled last week due to the deadly tornado in Oklahoma, the season three finale of "Mike & Molly" will air at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Titled "Windy City," the episode in question has Mike and Carl stuck working at the Renaissance Faire as a tornado approaches Chicago. Melissa McCarthy, the actress who plays Molly, hails from Plainfield, which experienced a devastating tornado in 1990 that killed 29 people and injured hundreds.

CBS ran a rerun last week in place of the finale.

The scheduling change is just the latest in recent months as television networks have shuffled their line-ups in response to national tragedies.

ABC and NBC both pulled their respective episodes of "Castle" and "Hannibal" after the Boston Marathon bombings.

Sensitivity concerns prompted Fox to swap originals for repeats of its irreverent animated series "Family Guy" and "American Dad" after December's shooting rampage in Newtown, Conn. That same event led to the Syfy network shelving an episode of its supernatural drama "Haven" because it contained scenes of violence at a high school.
