I love Blue Blood I am glad the show has picked up another season. It shows what a family is about, and how you can work with your family memebers with out stepping out of line on the job. We need more shows that’s shows family values. There are no more shows out there that shows family values since the 70’s.

Blue Bloods is one of the best shows on tv today! What is CBS thinking? This is one show that shows a little family value. We need more shows that show a family that gets together for a Sunday dinner. Having simple things like that are important to some people, its refreshing to see in todays world. We need more shows like that and less reality shows that are nowhere near real at all! Come on Hollywood clean it up and give us some values to follow in todays Hellish world!!!

I sure hope they don’t cancel Blue Bloods! That’s one show that shows some kind of normal family values. You don’t see any shows today that shows families doing anything together! That’s what’s missing in todays society. Kids today don’t hardly know what family time is anymore, please continue to give them some kind of a clue as to what normalcy is. We need more shows like that instead of more so called reality shows. There is nothing real about these reality shows. LET’S GET REAL!
