Why is episode 9 the last new episode of the year?

Bob Hearts Abishola Season 3 has skipped a few weeks in its regular schedule. The CBS sitcom usually airs on Monday nights after The Neighborhood at 8:30 pm EST.

Both Bob Hearts Abishola and The Neighborhood saw delays for a week at the end of October. CBS wanted their new episodes to air in November to perform well in ratings during Sweeps Week.

They saw another delay during the week of Thanksgiving because of Christmas specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

As the Christmas season approaches, the reason for Bob Hearts Abishola Season 3’s delay until 2022 only comes from reruns airing for the last two Mondays in 2021. While people the holidays take place, many families prefer to turn off the TV and spend time with each other.

When will new episodes of ‘Bob Hearts Abishola’ Season 3 return in 2022?

After the December holidays and New Year’s Day, Bob Hearts Abishola Season 3 returns on January 3, 2022. However, reruns take the normal air time for the CBS sitcom until then.

On December 13, the Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2, Episode 15, “TLC: Tunde’s Loving Care,” airs. The episode follows a conflict between Folake Olowofoyeku’s Abishola and Vernee Watson’s Gloria.

“As Abishola begins studying for medical school,” the press release reads. “She offends Gloria with an insensitive comment about Gloria’s own journey of almost becoming a doctor. Also, Tunde schools a reluctant Bob on the art of home repair while helping to fix his dishwasher.”

Then the following week, the Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2, Episode 13, “A Big African Bassoon,” runs on December 27. It is the last episode of the show to air in 2021. The episode sees Abishola taking on more tasks at the hospital, leaving Douglas (Matt Jones) and Christina (Maribeth Monroe) to care for their mom.

“When Gloria goes on vacation,” the press release said. “Abishola takes charge of the nursing staff but quickly falls short as the job requires ‘people skills.’ Also, with Abishola extra busy at the hospital, the Wheelers try to cope with her temporary absence.”
