From Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre, Bob Hearts Abishola is a love story about a middle-aged compression sock businessman from Detroit who unexpectedly falls for his cardiac nurse, a Nigerian immigrant, while recovering from a heart attack and sets his sights on winning her over.

Bob runs his family's successful, highly competitive sock company with his mother, Dottie, his sister, Christine, and his younger brother, Douglas.

When the stress of the job lands him in the hospital, he meets Abishola, his kind, hard-working nurse whom he's immediately drawn to.

Now all Bob needs to do is convince her to give him a chance, which will take some doing since they couldn't be more different.

After coming to America from Nigeria to find a better life for her and her son, Dele, a straight-A student, Abishola lives in a small apartment with her super-protective relatives, Auntie Olu and Uncle Tunde.

Abishola's close friends include fellow nurse Gloria and Kemi.

Castle 3

On the series last season, Castle and Beckett's relationship grew stronger as they dodged bullets, captured killers and solved countless murder cases in their unorthodox partnership.

But by the Season 2 finale, Beckett's new relationship with a Robbery detective had pushed Castle away, forcing them both to confront their feelings.

When Castle left to finish writing his second Nikki Heat novel, "Naked Heat," Beckett had to watch him walk away, unable to express her true feelings and unsure whether he would return to the precinct.

When the new season of Castle begins, Beckett hasn't heard from Castle since he left for the Hamptons months ago to finish writing his second Nikki Heat novel, "Naked Heat".

The most Beckett, Ryan and Esposito have seen of Castle is a bookstore standee of him advertising an upcoming book signing.

So when Beckett and her team burst into a shadowy apartment on the trail of a murderer, the last thing they expect to see is the real-life Castle standing over a dead woman's body holding a gun.

As Castle protests his innocence, Beckett has no choice but to arrest him on suspicion of murder.
