Bob Hearts Abishola Ending After Five Seasons

Another CBS veteran is on its way out, as the Tiffany Network has announced that the upcoming fifth season of Monday night sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola will be its swan song. The news comes just weeks after the network's other Chuck Lorre-created comedy, Young Sheldon, was also announced to be ending. Bob Hearts Abishola was nowhere near the ratings winner that Young Sheldon was, but, having boasted a 0.42 average last season, it was still a solid player for the network. Despite this, it was not owned by CBS in a time when network ownership has come to be an extremely important factor. The recent cast cuts for the show, which saw eleven of the show's thirteen series regulars, including Christine Ebersole, Barry Shabaka Henley, Shola Adewusi and series co-creator Gina Yashere, were a further sign that the show's end may be nearing. That end is now confirmed, and its thirteen-episode fifth season will be its final season, with its finale airing on May 13. Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku starred as the titular characters in the series.
