Plot Synopsis

From creator, executive producer and writer Chuck Lorre, BOB (HEARTS) ABISHOLA is a half-hour sitcom about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over. Undaunted by Abishola's lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob is determined to win Abishola's heart. Bob runs his family's successful, highly competitive sock company with his mother, Dottie, his sister, Christina, and his younger brother, Douglas. When the stress of the job lands him in the hospital, he meets Abishola, his kind, hard-working nurse whom he's immediately drawn to. Now all Bob needs to do is convince her to give him a chance, which will take some doing since they couldn't be more different. After coming to America from Nigeria to find a better life for her and her son, Dele, a straight-A student, Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde. Abishola's close friends include fellow nurse Gloria and Kemi. Undaunted by Abishola's lack of initial interest or the vast differences in their backgrounds, Bob is determined to win Abishola's heart, in this comedic examination of immigrant life in America.

The second season of BOB (HEARTS) ABISHOLA premiered on Monday, November 16, 2020 at 8:30pm ET/PT on CBS. In the season opener, "On a Dead Guy's Bench," Bob enlists Tunde's help to buy an engagement ring, but his plans to propose to Abishola are upended by her belief that a traditional marriage is more trouble than it's worth.
After a three-week break, BOB (HEARTS) ABISHOLA returned with new episodes on Monday, January 4, 2021 at 8:30pm ET/PT on CBS. In the winter premiere, "A Tight Ass Is a Wonderful Thing," thanks to Abishola's brutal Nigerian honesty, Bob finds himself in a feud with Kemi. Also, after Douglas makes a big mistake on the warehouse floor, Goodwin hates himself for looking the other way. Tony Tambi guest stars as Chukwuemeka.
