Tv Season Info

This New York crime drama focuses on a multigenerational family of cops, which includes the city's police commissioner, his two sons and his retired father. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) stars as the NYPD police commissioner, a role once held by his father, Henry (Len Cariou). Frank's eldest son Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is an Iraq War vet and a detective on the force, daughter Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant DA, and younger son Jamie (Will Estes) is a Harvard alum who just became a beat cop. In the premiere series, the Reagan family deal with the recent loss of another son, Joe, who was killed in the line of duty. Along the way, they tackle many crime situations, often with the help of Jamie's partner, Sgt. Anthony Renzulli (Nick Turturro).

Critic Reviews for Blue Bloods: Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (12)

The Green/Burgess team is one of TV's best and we hope they'll make this show as sharp and compelling as it should be.

September 24, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Top Critic

If not for the narrative clunkiness, "Blue Bloods'' has the potential to be a juicy multigenerational family drama.

September 24, 2010 | Full Review…

The best new cop drama of a TV season that has more police than a presidential motorcade.

September 24, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

On the surface, CBS' "Blue Bloods" has all of the pieces in place to be a very good or possibly great TV show. Based on the pilot, though, there's a sense that the folks involved may be content with merely "good."

September 24, 2010 | Full Review…

Despite its good cast and competent execution, this drama about a family of New York cops feels a bit perfunctory.

September 24, 2010 | Full Review…

The potential police department conspiracy pushes "Blue Bloods" into more sudsy territory than necessary, but at least this show marks another attempt by CBS to expand its offerings beyond paint-by-number crime dramas.
