Billy Gardell and Melissa McCarthy in CBS' "Mike and Molly."

CBS has taken the scheduled season-ending episode of "Mike & Molly" off the air because its plot line revolved around a tornado threatening the couple.

The network said it replaced the comedy with a rerun on Monday out of sensitivity to victims of the deadly tornado in Oklahoma.

CBS said the show's season finale will air "at an appropriate date." The plot had the two lead characters confessing important news to one another as a tornado threatens Chicago.

Dozens of fatalities were reported Monday when a giant storm hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore.
