'Blue Bloods': Tom Selleck and the cop family drama rule Fridays -

'Blue Bloods': Tom Selleck and the cop family drama rule Fridays -

"Despite airing in prime-time's semi-wasteland of Friday night, "Blue Bloods" is now watched by nearly 13 million people, making it one of the most popular programs on network television (even if, with a median age of 62, it also has the oldest audience of any show on the broadcast airwaves). "

I'm one of the old farts who watches this regularly -- and mostly for its family dinner. Yep. This and Nashville are the only two series I watch. I tried Americans but gave up after a month or two. I liked the first season of West Wing, but soon quit in the second.

But the old BBC stuff available on the Fire smokes what we produce. I watch more Fire than TV as a result.

Charles, I occasionally watch Blue Bloods with my honey (she is a regular), but I always wind up feeling the writing is second-rate. Need to find a suspect? Look, there he is now!
And how many scenes "end" lazily with a close-up on a chagrined Selleck or Wahlberg?

I can't disagree with you since it's true. However, this has nothing to do with why I watch it. I watch it to see the interaction at dinner of four generations. These scenes aren't great but on TV they are unique and usually worth my time. I think it's wishful thinking nostalgia that keeps me watching ha ha.
