It’s a common belief that TV shows that air on Friday nights will certainly be cancelled soon. While that’s often true, Blue Bloods has done very well for CBS, airing on Fridays for nearly its entire run. Will it continue to survive? Will the ratings rise or fall this season? Cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned.
Blue Bloods revolves around the Irish-American Reagan family and their work as part of the NYPD. The cast includes Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Amy Carlson, Sami Gayle, Vanessa Ray, Nicholas Turturro, and Marisa Ramirez.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
3/25 update: CBS has renewed this series and 10 others for the 2016-17 season. Details here.
5/7 update: You can see the latest night’s ratings in context.

For comparisons: The fifth season of Blue Bloods averaged a 1.24 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 9.48 million total viewers.
Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you like the Blue Bloods TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a seventh season?
Blue Bloods is an excellent series all the actors and actresses are the best everybody in my family and all my friends and their family all the way from teenagers to my age all love the series from age 10 the age 60 and more CBS would be crazy to cancel this
This is the best tv show, Blue Bloods…we watch it all the time. We love all the characters and how they interact, great writing. Family time around the dinner table is what families are yearning for again! I love Tom Selleck how he handles family situations.
So many people in my area love this show…keep writing!
I have watched it since season one and I love the show the whole family does please do not cancel it and renew it for another season
I love Blue Bloods. I just became a fan recently, this is my second season. Howevet, I’ve watched all the reruns on ION. Great Show. Great story line, Great acting. The segment with them together at the dinner table is priceless. This show is sets a good example for all people. Thanks for the experience.
Show should be cancelled..Too many re runs..No excuses…Show has a new episode maybe every 2 to 3 weeks..It’s a sucker’s show (As is all T.V. shows IMO) and we all should tune out until they can afford to film a new episode each week
Don’t let these folks string you along…Hell of a way to treat your T.V. Audience who is the only reason why this show in on the air in the first place
Don’t like it, don’t watch. There are plenty of us who WILL watch, WHENEVER it’s on. I still watch them on ION & WGN marathons. Go ahead & “tune out” if you are dissatisfied but I for one hope BB goes on for MANY more seasons.
It’s a great show CBS be crazy to cancel it it needs to keep on running for another season and another season
Too good of a show to cancel. Stresses family dynamics and unconditional love. Storylines are interesting and I eagerly await for the Friday night show.
Bluebloods is a great show but watching it from the beginning I watch the reruns Tom Selleck in the whole crew are great you cannot cancel this show it’s as great as NCIS and all the NCIS LA and NCIS New Orleans they are all great just like blue bloods are do not cancel
