I thought the show was interesting enough to continue watching, but it just never gripped me. The characters are not people I really care about, so I can’t imagine how they would have any major character arcs.
The story centres around the blue-blooded Rose family of Manhattan. When a new generation begins to enter the social order, all bets are off on what direction their lives will take. For the first time in generations, real estate, art history, and publishing are primary industries on which new money has made its mark. Self-made business mogul Malcolm Rose is the patriarch of the family. Being immersed in “old” money doesn’t prevent him from searching out new ventures with his MBA-wielding daughter Gillian and son Sebastian, who’s just entered college at Columbia. West Point graduate Sean is the most conservative of the family. After an internship with the Natural Resources Defence Council, the good-natured but slightly rebellious daughter Erin, a Yale grad, follows her heart into environmental campaigning.
The series began on September 24, 2012. On May 13, 2013, CBS renewed Blue Bloods for seasons 8 and 9.
On February 25th 2016, it was announced that Jennifer Esposito had been cast as Danny Reagan’s new partner Jackie Curatola in season 7 of Blue Bloods before departing from the series in August due to health problems which she has celiac disease.

Blue Bloods gained an audience averaging 11 million viewers after the first week, and by the end of its first season, it had averaged 14.3 million viewers. In January 2011, it was reported that an average of almost 23 million people watched each episode via DVR or other digital recording devices. It was later reported to have been the most recorded series on television during its second season. For both seasons one and two, it also claimed the record for the largest live + 7-day increase with a gain of 3.49 million viewers (+46%).

Blue Bloods had generally received positive reviews from critics, receiving 68/100 (based on 29 critics) on Metacritic for season one. Tom Feran of the “Akron Beacon Journal” stated that “[w]hether you like cop shows or not, whether you buy into old-school conservatism or not, this is a smartly made show with distinct characters who make strong impressions in only a few scenes.” At the same time, David Hinckley commented that it was “tough to beat ‘NYPD Blue’ at its best. This show doesn’t get to that level.” Hank Stuever of The Washington Post gave it a mixed review, saying: “It’s sort of like the History Channel and — dare we say — Archie Bunker together in one family room. And while Blue Bloods certainly isn’t dull, neither is it entirely satisfying.”
