Without exception this is the best show on television today. I only watch two network shows, one is The Middle and then Blue Bloods. If I could only watch one it would be Blue Bloods.
I hope the people in charge of putting this show on, realize what a great show it is. From the writing to the cast. It has it all, quality , style and class. You care what happens to this family every week. Please pass this on to the powers that be at CBS.

Thank You
Margaret Hager

Please renew Blue Bloods. It is on ONLY Primetime show that I watch!!!!! It is the only TV Show that has old fashioned family values. Maybe if more families had Sunday dinners together like we did when I was a kid, this world would be a better place to live!
Love Tom Selleck!!!!! He’s like a bottle of wine ….gets better as it ages!!!!!
