While a decline is never positive, the debut was higher than last season’s average. It was tied in first place for the timeslot, with NBC’s Dateline, and continues to attract the highest number of total viewers of the night.

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.

I think Blue Bloods is the best TV Show. I especially like the conversations that take place at the dinner table. The episode on Feb 3 was so moving, it brought tears to my eyes. All the actors and actresses are believable in their roles, making it such a joy to watch.

Georgia February 8, 2012 at 10:46 am

Love this show. All the actors are great in it. If there was an award for TV’s best episode of the week, the episode of 2/3 would win.

Bob February 7, 2012 at 3:21 pm

By far the best Cop show on TV, I hope they don’t cancel it. We never miss a show….

jim giblin February 3, 2012 at 11:12 pm

Tom Selleck is great! So nice to see a family show with good ethics. Teaches our kids to be honest and it is rewarded. Please keep on and bring Chicago code back!

L December 6, 2011 at 1:02 pm

great show, great cast hope it comes back for another season

Jeff Thurston November 26, 2011 at 7:12 pm

Probably the single best drama on TV! Finally a show that explores the reality of peoples selfish, fallen nature, but revolves around the Grace of God that is the love of family!
Bravo Tom Selleck for being associate with this project! As a physician who was practicing in Hawaii when you were shooting Magnum PI, I will bea Selleck fan forever! Good work CBS!

tedolan November 20, 2011 at 12:50 pm

Love this show! Great cast, good story line – Pretty good show for CBS!

Martha Mitchell November 19, 2011 at 8:05 pm

Please continue Blue Blood. It is nice to see families that love and protect each other.

A.D. November 13, 2011 at 9:34 pm

Definitely a good show; not many cop shows that involve the family in them. Should come back for a few seasons at least.

Totally agree about Chicago Code; somebody let a good show get away!

Al November 12, 2011 at 4:34 pm

This is a good show BUT I want Chicago Code to return somewhere!
