Blue Bloods is an American police procedural drama series shown on CBS in the United States and Canada. The series is filmed on location in New York City with occasional references to nearby suburbs.[1] The show premiered on September 24, 2010,[2] with episodes airing on Fridays following CSI: NY before being moved to Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time and 9:00 p.m. Central and Mountain time for a four week tryout and after four weeks returned to its original timeslot Fridays at 10:00 p.m. and has remained there ever since.

On March 13, 2014, CBS renewed Blue Bloods for a fifth season,[3] which premiered on September 26, 2014.[4]

Overview[edit]

The series follows the Irish-American Reagan family of police officers with the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Francis "Frank" Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the Police Commissioner. He was a U.S. Marine Corps officer and a Vietnam veteran before he joined the NYPD. He is a widower whose son Joe died in the line of duty, leaving him three remaining adult children—Danny, Erin, and Jamie.

Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is a top NYPD detective, holding the rank of Detective First Grade, but is sometimes hard-nosed and does not always go by the book. Danny is also a Marine veteran, having served in the Iraq War. Danny's partner at the beginning of the series is Detective First Grade Jackie Curatola (Jennifer Esposito); however, Kate Lansing (Megan Ketch) became an interim partner early in Season 3. By Episode 13 of the show's third season, Danny Reagan obtains another interim partner, Candice McElroy[5] (Megan Boone). As of Season 3, Episode 17, Danny's full-time partner is Detective Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez).

Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney in Manhattan who prosecutes many of the criminals Danny arrests. She is promoted to Trial Bureau Chief in the show's third season.

Jamie (Will Estes), Frank's youngest child, is a graduate of Harvard Law School and is a decorated officer on the police force after graduating from the police academy in the pilot episode. He was formerly partnered with Officer Vinny Cruz until his death at the end of season three. He is currently partnered with Officer Eddie Janko.

Henry (Len Cariou) is Frank's father, former NYPD officer and also a former NYPD police commissioner, now retired. Henry served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. Henry often provides advice to his son, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Both Henry's and Frank's wives are deceased. Erin is divorced (her ex-husband, Jack Boyle, has appeared in some episodes) and has one teenage daughter, Nicki (Sami Gayle), who lives with Erin. Danny is married to Linda (Amy Carlson), an ER nurse. They have two sons, Jack and Seán.

Each episode has a family dinner scene at a large dining table in the Henry/Frank home. All family members attend, including Danny's sons and Erin's daughter. Various family members discuss their day, current cases, or controversies just depicted in the episode. The kids often have meaty or moral issue questions which the various adults answer, sometimes with differing viewpoints. The conversation may also include family members ribbing each other, and Henry or Frank dispensing wise advice. Sometimes the conversation breaks down in acrimony due to differing feelings or perspectives between family members on emotional issues, but the family always remains loving and united.

Frank's middle son, Joseph, was an NYPD police detective who died in the line of duty in events that pre-date the series. Joe was involved with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigating a group of corrupt NYPD cops, who were operating within a fraternal organization called the "Blue Templar". The dirty cops murdered Joe when his covert investigation was getting close to naming names.

A running thread through the first season is Jamie's picking up Joe's investigation. The FBI tried to recruit Jamie, but he instead conducted his own covert investigation into Joe's death. Joe's murderers try to kill Jamie by tampering with the brakes on his car, but fail. After the failed hit, Jamie informs Frank, Danny, and grandfather Henry about the results of his informal investigation.

Along with his prosecutor sister Erin, the Reagan family joins together and completes Joe's Blue Templar investigation. After gathering sufficient evidence to obtain arrest warrants, Frank leads a team of police officers, including Danny and Jamie, to execute the warrant. They arrest the corrupt cops while they are having a covert meeting to divide stolen drug money. The group's leader, a detective named Sonny Malevsky (Michael T. Weiss), admits to killing Joe Reagan. After his confession, Malevsky commits suicide with his service pistol.

Jamie's field training officer is Sergeant Anthony Renzulli (Nicholas Turturro), who is tough but fair with Jamie and thinks Jamie has what it takes to be a great cop.[6] Jamie was engaged to Sydney (Dylan Moore), a fellow Harvard graduate who was upset with his decision to become a cop. She officially broke off their engagement after Jamie became obsessed with investigating Joe's murder.

Production[edit]

Selleck said that he was drawn to the project because of the strong pilot script and that he was concerned about becoming involved in an ongoing series because he did not want to compromise his commitment to the Jesse Stone television movies.[21] Beginning January 19, 2011, Blue Bloods was moved to Wednesdays at 10 p.m. for a four-week tryout.[22] In February 2011, the series returned to its Friday night time slot due to the series premiere of Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior. In the UK, the show helped launch Sky Atlantic by premiering on Tuesday, February 1, 2011, at 10:30 p.m.[23] In Australia, the show premiered in February 2011 in a primetime Wednesday slot on Network TEN, then from February 2013 for season two was moved from the network's primary SD channel to its HD channel one alongside White Collar, then on August 26, 2013 the show moved back to the primary SD channel on Mondays for season three. In New Zealand, the show premieres on July 13, 2013 on TV3 replacing CSI: NY in a primetime Saturday slot after Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

On October 20, 2012, CBS announced that Jennifer Esposito was being dropped from the series, with her character, Detective Curatola, being placed on indefinite leave of absence.[24] Esposito and CBS had been at odds over her limited availability for work after the actress was diagnosed with Celiac disease. She had missed a week after collapsing on set earlier in the season. According to Esposito, CBS challenged her request for a reduced work schedule, and further, kept her from finding work elsewhere.[24] In a press release from CBS, the network said that Esposito had "informed us that she is only available to work on a very limited part-time schedule. As a result, she's unable to perform the demands of her role and we regretfully had to put her character on a leave of absence."[24] Curatola's last appearance was in the third season episode "Nightmares".

According to TV by the Numbers, by committing to a third season of Blue Bloods, CBS is all but guaranteed to commit to a fourth season.[25] This is because as a CBS Television Studios production, CBS has a financial incentive to produce at least the minimum number of episodes needed for stripped syndication.[25] On March 27, 2013, CBS made it official by renewing Blue Bloods for a fourth season to begin in the fall of 2013.[26]

Blue Bloods was renewed for a fifth season on March 13, 2014.[27][28]

Broadcast[edit]

In Australia the series premiered on Network Ten's primary channel on February 2, 2011.[29] Due to poor ratings of the first season, Ten moved the series to its HD channel One, which premiered the second season on October 31, 2011.[30] Due to decreased viewership of Ten's primary channel, season three moved back from August 26, 2013,[31] and season four returned on March 17, 2014.[32]

In New Zealand the series premiered on TV3 on July 13, 2013.[33]

The series premiered on Sky Atlantic in the UK on February 1, 2011,[34] with season two returning on October 4, 2011,[34] season three on December 13, 2012,[34] and season four on November 28, 2013.[35]

Reception[edit]

Reviewers have praised the series' on-location shooting.[36] The New York Daily News praised Selleck's performance as Frank Reagan,[36] while also praising the family dinner scene for discussion of morally complex issues.[36]

The Daily News drew comparisons between Selleck's characters Jesse Stone and Frank Reagan, saying that both Reagan and Stone are moral, principled men of few words.[36] In Entertainment Weekly's annual Fall TV Preview, Ken Tucker named Blue Bloods as one of the "5 Best New Shows" of 2010.[37]

Ratings[edit]

The pilot episode garnered 15.246 million viewers because of the Live + 7 days after with viewings from DVRs. Without the DVR adding to the live viewing the show's debut episode garnered a total of 13.02 million viewers.[38]

Overall, the ratings have been steady for the series, after the pilot episode. The lowest viewer total of 9.77 million occurred in the second episode of the third season, and is to date the only episode that had fewer than 10 million viewers. The highest (non-pilot) numbers of 12.73 million occurred in the sixth episode of the second season.[39][40] The second season finale on May 11, 2012 was watched by 10.73 million viewers and received a 1.2/4 ratings/share among adults ages 18–49.[41]

In January 2013, CBS announced via press release that Blue Bloods was the first scripted Friday series in 10 years to average at least 13 million viewers, gaining eight percent more viewers than the previous year. The second season of CSI in 2001 had 14.78 million viewers, while the fourth season of Law & Order: SVU in 2003 had 14.92 million.[42]
