Jay Cole says
I am delighted at this news. I watch this program, as apparently millions of others do, every week without fail. This may be the only program on broadcast TV in which the leads are intelligent, courageous, wise, honorable, faithful men who are devoted to their families and, up to now, faithful to their wives. The last time a program like that was on a TV drama was in 2000 when “The OC” aired on Fox and the attorney “Sandy” was such a man. Nothing like that has occurred since until Blue Bloods. Your programmers and writers might consider creating other characters like that. There are still such men around and they watch TV.

I love Blue Bloods & when I tuned into watch it tonight, it wasnt there. As I. And late to this wonderful series, any chance to play it from beginning.
Barb Mason says
I am watching Season 11, and I never miss a show. Right amount of balance between cop drama and a solid faith filled family. No wonder it does so well, it sits well with a lot of people of all ages.
