Bob Hearts Abishola

CBS has revealed that the highly praised comedy series BOB ♥ ABISHOLA will have its series finale on Monday, May 13 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Viewers can also watch the finale live and on demand on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers, or catch it the day after it airs on Paramount+ Essential. Season five is almost here on the Network, and then the show will end. The fifth season will return on Monday, February 12th (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

The romantic comedy BOB ♥ ABISHOLA follows the story of Bob, played by Billy Gardell, a middle-aged businessman from Detroit who deals with compression socks. While recuperating from a heart attack, he falls in love with Abishola, a Nigerian immigrant and his cardiac nurse, and decides to win her heart. This comedic look at immigrant life in America follows Bob as he tries to win the heart of Abishola despite her initial lack of interest and their vastly different backgrounds. He eventually marries her.

During the 2019–20 television season, BOB ♥ ABISHOLA was the most popular new comedy. No comedy on NBC, ABC, or FOX has garnered more viewers than BOB ♥ ABISHOLA since its second season. African American viewers during the 2022-23 season preferred THE NEIGHBOURHOOD and BOB ♥ ABISHOLA as their top two comedies.

“BOB ♥ ABISHOLA is about an unlikely love story, but also the premise that immigrants make America great,” said executive producers Gina Yashere, Matt Ross and Chuck Lorre. “We’ve loved bringing these stories to life and are excited for fans to see the final chapter of these two families, and the incredible work of this talented cast and crew.”

Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku headline the show. Matt Ross, Gina Yashere, Al Higgins, and Chuck Lorre are the executive producers. Chuck Lorre Productions is partnered with Warner Bros. Television to produce BOB ♥ ABISHOLA.

“We are so proud to call BOB ♥ ABISHOLA a CBS comedy as it helped establish a new generation of programming at the Network,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “This series expertly showcased a family love story and workplace comedy about the immigrant experience with heartfelt humor and emotion while also authentically portraying Nigerian culture. It’s a testament to the incomparable Chuck Lorre, the amazing creative team led by Al Higgins, Gina Yashere and Matt Ross, and the talents of Billy Gardell, Folake Olowofoyeku and the entire cast for making this show and its characters come to life and resonate with viewers. We plan to celebrate it this spring and give fans the most amazing episodes to remember it by.”

The CBS Television Network airs BOB ♥ ABISHOLA on Mondays from 8:30 to 9:00 PM ET/PT, and Paramount+ offers live and on demand streaming.
