Blue Bloods: Tom Selleck’s New Series for CBS; Cancel or Keep It?

1 October 2010 3:40 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last week, CBS premiered their new Friday night cop series, Blue Bloods. This marks the return of Tom Selleck to CBS in a regular TV show. His last series for the network, Magnum Pi, lasted for eight seasons. Will this one last as long or be quickly cancelled?

Blue Bloods revolves around the Reagans, a multi-generation family of New York City cops. The series stars Selleck, Bridget Moynahan, Donnie Wahlberg, Will Estes, Len Cariou, and Dylan Moore.

Last week, Blue Bloods debuted to a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 13.01 million total viewers. That was enough to be the most-watched show in its timeslot and for the whole night in both categories.

  By historical comparison, that's a significant improvement in the timeslot. Last season's sixth season premiere of Numb3rs attracted just a 1.8 in the demo and »

‘Blue Bloods’ Pilot Review and Discussion

25 September 2010 12:25 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Glory be to the mustache gods! Tom Selleck (and his world-famous facial hair) is back on television again in the new CBS series Blue Bloods. The police procedural, which follows a multi-generational family of New York City cops, features Selleck as Frank Reagan, the New York City Police Commissioner.

The show also stars Donny Wahlberg as Danny Reagan, a veteran detective and Iraq war veteran; Will Estes as Jamie Reagan, a Harvard graduate turned rookie cop; Len Cariou as Henry Reagan, the patriarch of the family and retired former police commissioner; and Bridget Moynahan as Erin Reagan, a New York City assistant district attorney.

The last time the 65-year-old Selleck appeared on the small screen in a regular series was in 2008 for the fifth and final season of the…

Blue Bloods Review: Pilot

24 September 2010 9:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Blue Bloods isn’t your normal police procedural. It is a cop show and family drama that is driven by characters, not forensics. It’s also the perfect vehicle to bring Tom Selleck back into our living rooms every week.

The premiere opens with Selleck as NYC Police Commissioner Frank Reagan, presiding over the graduation ceremony of the newest NYPD recruits.  The class includes his son Jamie Reagan played by Will Estes. A graduate of Harvard Law, the family thought Jamie was destined for a life without the blue uniform, but as his older brother Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) quips, now he’s “just like the rest of us Reagans, another boot in a suit.”

This is a cop family. Frank is following in his father's footsteps. Veteran actor Len Cariou is family patriarch Henry Reagan. Henry’s career on the force was marred by controversy. Whatever the issues were, they »

TV Review: Tom Selleck’s Epic ‘Blue Bloods’ Has Some Potential

24 September 2010 3:34 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Tom Selleck is back on series television, portraying the patriarch of a New York City cop dynasty in “Blue Bloods” (not a bad pun), but this time he is the Chief of Police over the whole city. He still has time for Sunday dinner with the family, and he’s inviting TV fans to the table.

Television Rating: 3.0/5.0

The scope is pretty large for a typical cop show. Tom Selleck has the whole naked city to worry about, and he gets into even more hot water when his family intertwines with his duties. Besides the tough get-it-done attitude that officials like this usually have, Selleck also has to deal with the media, the mayor, a secret cop society and his own dicey love life. Blue Bloods premieres on CBS, Friday, September 24th, at 9pm Cst.

The story unfolds at a cop graduation, quite effectively, as the newly minted officers »

'Blue Bloods' review: Arresting family drama

24 September 2010 1:23 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

CBS' new drama "Blue Bloods" could go one of two ways: It could become a cop show whose main characters all happen to be related, or it could become a show about a family whose members all happen to work in law enforcement.

Either one would still boast a strong cast led by Tom Selleck, Bridget Moynahan and Donnie Wahlberg, and either one would be watchable. But based on what we saw in Friday's (Sept. 24) series premiere, we're pulling for the family element to be at least on equal footing with the crime stories.

The show was created by former "Sopranos" writers and producers Robin Green and Mitchell Burgess, who know their way around a family dynamic. But it's also on CBS, which knows its way around a crime procedural. What we're hoping can happen is a melding of those two things similar to what has happened on "The Good Wife, »

Blue Bloods Cast Talks Series Premiere: A TV Fanatic Report

23 September 2010 12:27 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The sold-out Blue Bloods event at the Paley Center in NYC had people standing in line on Wednesday. 

Surprise thunderstorms and 90-degree heat weren’t enough to scare off fans of this new CBS police drama, which stars Tom Selleck and Donnie Wahlberg.  Cat calls and whistles were heard as the cast was introduced.

Clearly, there is already excitement surrounding this show, even though the pilot won’t air until tomorrow night  Those of us lucky enough to attend got the privilege of an early showing.  Although I can’t give away too many details (the Paley Center hit squad may track me down and confiscate my laptop as punishment), I can say that you do not want to miss it.  Five minutes into the pilot, I was already hooked.

Blue Bloods is a different type of cop series.  Executive Producer Leonard Goldberg says his favorite TV shows have always »

Pilot Scoop: Blue Bloods

10 August 2010 3:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I'm totally changing gears here with the Fall TV pilots, and switching from my assessment of Hellcats to something heavier: CBS's new drama, Blue Bloods. What it's about: The Reagans have served the NYPD for multiple generations: grandfather Henry (Len Cariou) was the chief of police, his son Frank (Tom Selleck) is currently in the job, and Frank's children Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Erin (Bridget Moynahan) also maintain law and order (as a detective and an assistant D.A., respectively). Now, the youngest of the household, Jamie (Will Estes), is being welcomed into the fold, having just graduated from the police academy. The family members butt heads, but ultimately try to help each other out when it comes to solving a hard-to-crack case. Where it works: The show has the same writing team as The Sopranos, so what more do you need? I don't care much about the actual episode-to-episode »

New Series Breakdown: CBS

20 May 2010 10:24 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the fourth announced yesterday. Here's a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on CBS.

The Eye continued its reign as the #1-rated network this past season. Its procedurals (NCIS, CSI, Criminal Minds, Mentalist) dominate the marketplace, about half its sitcoms (The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men) are strong performers, and though it only launched four shows last Fall it turned two of them (Good Wife, NCIS: La) into major hits.

The network isn't resting on its laurels though as this year it launches three dramas and two comedies in the Fall, and the high-profile "Criminal Minds" spin-off mid-season. As a result some long running dramas like "Cold Case," "Ghost Whisperer" and "Numb3rs" along with its more recent and lesser performing sitcoms have all been given the axe. »

My Dad Says, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0, The Defenders, and Blue Bloods.  You can see that CBS is working in their wheelhouse here (three-camera sitcoms and procedural dramas), resulting in a slate with a good chance of success in the fall.  Check out the clips for yourself, as well as full synopses for each show, after the jump.

$#*! My Dad Says

Based on the popular Twitter feed by Justin Halpern, Emmy Award winner William Shatner stars as Ed Goodson, a forthright and opinionated dad who relishes expressing his unsolicited and often wildly politically incorrect observations to anyone within earshot.  Nobody is immune from Ed’s rants, including his sons, Henry, a struggling writer-turned-unpaid blogger; and Vince (Will Sasso), the meek »

CBS Reveals 2010-2011 TV Schedule

19 May 2010 9:20 AM, PDT | TVStar | See recent TVStar news »

CBS network recently gave the green light go-ahead to four hour-long dramas and two comedies for the 2010 season. It isn’t clear yet if everything will start this fall or if some shows may be mid season replacements, as the great “Eye” will have to do some reshuffling of the deck with its schedule. Hawaii Five-o (TV) starring the fan-favorite Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Cahn and Daniel Dae Kim (formally of Lost (TV)) was the sure-bet. This remake of the 1970s drama is produced by Fringe (TV)’s dynamic duo Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. You can bet with the casting and the location shots, this show will be overflowing with "pretty." Next up to bat will be Defenders (TV), a legal drama about some hot-shot Las Vegas defense attorneys, starring Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell.

CBS Radically Shuffles Schedule, Moves ‘Survivor,’ ‘Big Bang Theory’

19 May 2010 7:29 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – CBS announced their fall schedule today. While fans of canceled “Accidentally on Purpose,” “Cold Case,” “Gary Unmarried,” “Numb3rs,” “The Ghost Whisperer,” and “The New Adventures of Old Christine” may disagree, the big TV news of the week is that several of the top network’s biggest shows are moving. “Survivor” jumps to Wednesday nights, “The Big Bang Theory” moves to Thursdays, “CSI: NY” slides to Fridays, and “CSI: Miami” now goes down on Sundays.

As far as on-the-bubble renewals are concerned, CBS saved “Rules of Engagement” and “Medium”. The rest of their renewals were pretty obvious choices as the network continues to air many of the biggest hits on TV including the #1 drama (“NCIS”), #1 comedy (“Two and a Half Men”), #1 new series (“Undercover Boss”), #1 news magazine (“60 Minutes”), #1 new drama (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), and #1 scripted series for the 18-49 and 25-54 demos (“The Big Bang Theory”).

Of course, all of those shows are returning, »

CBS officially released their fall schedule today, and they certainly didn’t play it safe.  New sitcom Mike & Molly earns a prime berth in the dominant Monday comedy block, with Hawaii Five-0 taking over for CSI: Miami at 10:00.  Tuesdays continue with the NCIS franchise and The Good Wife.  Perennial Thursday victor Survivor is headed for Wednesdays, followed by Criminal Minds and new legal drama The Defenders.  CBS throws down the gauntlet to NBC’s comedies on Thursday, counterprogramming with #1 sitcom The Big Bang Theory and high-profile new laffer S#*! My Dad Says. On Fridays, Medium moves to 8:00, followed by CSI: NY in a new timeslot and new hourlong Blue Bloods at 10:00.  Saturdays are the same crime extravaganza as always.  Sundays 7:00-10:00 maintain a three hour block of unscripted television, while a displaced CSI: Miami closes out the night.  Check out the full schedule after the jump. »

Weekend Movie News Wrap Up: March 28, 2010

28 March 2010 11:08 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

This week:

How to Train Your Dragon kicks Alice off the top spot; Tom Selleck returns in Reagan’s Law! Kate Hudson has Something Borrowed; Carey Mulligan is a Fair Lady and will Tom Cruise and Reese Witherspoon saddle up for Paper Wings?

Box Office

Alice in Wonderland was finally slayed by How To Train Your Dragon. The 3D animated tale grossed a decent, if not spectacular $45 million. It should play well in the future and make a killing on DVD/Blu-ray.

Although Alice dipped to number two, it didn’t do too badly with a weekend take of $17.5 million. $293 million in the bank and a home video release in the near future means that Disney is going to have an impressive fiscal year.

John Cusack’s Hot Tub Time Machine was third with a disappointing take of $13 million. It was hoped that the film would open in the high teens. »
