Blue Bloods is an American police procedural drama series that airs on CBS. Its main characters are members of the fictional Reagan family, an Irish Catholic family in New York City with a history of work in law enforcement. Blue Bloods stars Tom Selleck as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan; other main cast members include Bridget Moynahan, Donny Wahlberg, Will Estes, Len Cariou, and Sami Gayle. The show is filmed on location in New York City with occasional references to nearby suburbs. The series debuted on September 24, 2010, with episodes airing on Fridays following CSI: NY before being moved to Wednesdays at 10:00 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time and 9:00 p.m. Central and Mountain time for a four-week tryout. After four weeks, it returned to its original Friday 10:00 p.m. Eastern time slot, where it has remained since. On April 12, 2019, CBS renewed the series for a tenth season; it is scheduled to premiere on September 27, 2019.
In spirit, though, "Blue Bloods" is really an urban western, reviving a genre that defined television drama from its infancy through the early 1970s. It eschews the moral ambiguity that cable shows are steeped in, focusing instead on a catechism of good and evil. Perhaps just as important, the NYPD is among the very few institutions in society that appear truly color-blind, living up to the loftiest ideals of the American creed, and in which the content of one’s character far outweighs the color of one’s skin, at least in the world of "Blue Bloods". It is all too easy today to view the main characters as stereotypes, but that would misunderstand the message of the show. The Reagans are in fact archetypes, predictable ones perhaps, but ones whose classical virtues provide the lens for viewing the world in which they live.--Michael Austin, The National Review, February 6, 2016
