CBS today handed out an order for more episodes of Bob Hearts Abishola, giving it a full season. The Monday night comedy is off to a solid start in the ratings through its first five episodes, though the critical response has been mixed thus far. Today's pickup gives the show nine additional episodes to add to its original order of 13.

The half-hour series is the latest offering from creator Chuck Lorre. It follows a middle-aged man from Detroit who, after a heart attack lands him in the hospital, unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, who is a Nigerian immigrant.
