Bob Hearts Abishola is a romantic comedy television show that premiered on CBS in September 2019. The show stars Billy Gardell as Bob, a middle-aged businessman from Detroit who runs his family's compression sock factory. Bob suffers a heart attack one day, which leads him to meet Abishola, played by Folake Olowofoyeku. She is his Nigerian nurse at the hospital where he is being treated. Bob quickly develops feelings for Abishola, but she is not interested in him at first.

Abishola is a hardworking immigrant who is still trying to settle into life in America. She is a single mother who works two jobs to provide for her son, Dele, played by Travis Wolfe Jr. Abishola is also dealing with her own past and the expectations of her Nigerian family. She is fiercely independent and determined to create a better life for herself and her son.

Christine Ebersole and Maribeth Monroe play Bob's sister and ex-wife, respectively. Bob's sister is supportive of his pursuit of Abishola, but his ex-wife is not thrilled about the idea. Matt L. Jones plays Bob's best friend, who is both a source of advice and comic relief throughout the show.

The supporting cast also includes Vernee Watson-Johnson, who plays Abishola's friend and coworker at the hospital. Shola Adewusi and Barry Shabaka Henley play Abishola's aunt and uncle, who are always over at her house eating and watching Nigerian soap operas. Gina Yashere plays Kemi, Abishola's friend who is a nurse at the hospital and often jokes about her hilarious dating life.

The show takes a lighthearted approach to the cultural differences and similarities between Bob and Abishola's backgrounds. Bob often tries to impress Abishola with his knowledge about Nigerian culture, and Abishola is amused by Bob's attempts to win her over. The show also tackles serious topics such as immigration, racism, and the challenges of being a working single parent.
