On Blue Bloods [CBS, Fridays, 10/9C], the police department is the Reagan family business. Frank Reagan [Tom Selleck] is the Chief of Police; his father Henry [Len Carious] was Chief before him; his eldest son Danny [Donny Wahlberg] is a homicide detective; his younger son has given up a potential career in lawyer and has just been sworn in as a police officer. His daughter Erin Reagan-Boyle [Bridget Moynihan] is an Assistant District Attorney, but she thinks like a cop – though she has problems with some of Danny’s methods. The series premiere introduces the extended Reagan clan and jumps into the kidnapping of a Hispanic girl – just as the press is toasting Frank for the Hispanic community’s lack of trust in the department.
The news that CBS, long the most stable of networks for programming, had axed seven shows – including some that were doing well in their timeslots [Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs, Cold Case] – came as a shock to fans of those shows. Now CBS is presenting a new schedule designed to give their five new fall shows the best possible situations, ratings-wise.
The five new series [three dramas, two comedies] premiering in the fall are: the reboot of Hawaii Five-0, The Defenders, Blue Bloods, $#*! My Dad Says and Mike & Molly. The Criminal Minds Spin-off is a mid-season show. Show descriptions and the full CBS fall schedule follow the jump.
