Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

Love the show. One of the better ones…

Kathy Schaefer March 7, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I think Blue Bloods is the best show on TV. I can take or leave TV but Blue Bloods is the one show I never miss. I think it has the best cast on all of T.V. Each character could carry an episode all by themsleves. Love it! Please bring back for a third season.

Donna March 7, 2012 at 12:14 am

Blue Bloods is, by far, the Best show on TV. My 5 kids and the grandkids all watch it. Great family values, insightful discussions, wonderful actors-we love it all! It’s been so long since a program has come along that we can all watch together without embarrassment or feeling that we are wasting our time. We look forward to a third season-we want more!!!

this show started out really well but has since turned into a DANNY show. It needs better story lines. cancelling it would work for me..

Molly & Morris Scop February 25, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Please keep Blue Bloods going. It is a wonderful show and offers very good family values as well as good work ethics. Let this show keep on coming.

Colleen February 19, 2012 at 8:25 am

We LOVE Blue Bloods! Please renew it and give this fine cast of actors another season in which to entertain us!! The multigenerational dynamic is one of the strongest assets of the show. There is also an ease in scenes when the family members are speaking back and forth that just says family is an important component in this series. And the dinner scenes are just wonderful–dinners are times when good conversation takes place and in our technology-happy society, it’s nice to see one pocket of time on television that does not include a computer, a cell phone, or a Blackberry. In regards to their episodes, the one that ended with the 9-11 memorial in the background literally left me in tears. We need more of this kind of writing on television, not less. Please, bring the Regans and company back for a third season!

I also think that this is a great police and family show. I do enjoy the family getting together for Fri night dinners and their discussions. Tom Selleck plays a good part in this show. Hope you keep this show going.

Nana February 13, 2012 at 9:41 am
