Does anybody know how many episodes they completed before the shutdown?

19. They were 2 days away from finishing 20 before they shut down.

Nick Cordero, who played Danny's nemesis, Victor Lugo, is unconscious in intensive care, likely from COVID-19.

He's apparently also lost his leg, too, as a result of the virus, so it sounds like he's got full-blown sepsis. I read an interview with Zach Braff this morning and it turns out Nick, his wife, and their new baby were staying with Zach (now just the wife and baby) while looking for a home in SoCal. What a horrible tragedy. People need to understand that this disease is not just attacking and killing older people. In fact, I read somewhere that only one of every four who are actively infected are over 60. But, I have never heard of it making someone as sick as it is Nick Cordero. I hope he pulls through. 🙏

Why is there no thread for tonight's episode? Family secrets. Feels like a series finale to me.

In several interviews, Tom said he's currently negotiating (again) to get a 2 season renewal instead of one.  Normally formal renewals would be issued by mid May but with this crisis and the recent Viacom merger, who knows?

 

And continued prayers for Nick, Amanda and their baby.  This story is just heart breaking.

Amy Carlson debuts in a recurring role on FBI Most Wanted.  She was asked about her time on Blue Bloods.

Quote

Digest: BLUE BLOODS is on TV all the time. What it is like to turn on the TV any day of the week and there you are?

Carlson: I feel really proud of the work that I did on BLUE BLOODS and I was there on the pilot and every episode until I wasn’t. And I’m proud of the contribution that I made. I always wanted to do more, but there was not that impulse on their side, so after enough time, I got the message that that was how they saw the role and that was the only way they wanted to see the role, and anybody who knows me knows I like adventure and I like to be challenged and it wasn’t going to happen there, sadly. I didn’t think they were going to kill her! But I’m really proud of the work that I did on that show. When I first went on that show, I felt such incredible opportunity, which is probably why it was disappointing to me [to have a limited role]. I looked at these two characters, Danny and Linda, and I thought to myself, “This is a great opportunity to tell an incredible marriage story on this show.” So, that was the idea I had in my head, and every chance I got, even when I had the two lines at dinner, I tried to fill that story with just the meal scraps on the table. But I think it was successful. People tell me, “I loved that couple,” and that makes me very proud.

I wonder what she thought they would do?  They really didn't have much choice about how to write her off the show.

Linda was living in reality

....unfortunately the neanderthal family she married into would/will never in a million years acknowledge that any woman maybe, just maybe, might have a point.

I have cringed and railed at all the abuse the Erin(especially) and Linda characters have had to endure AND forgive while the Henry and Danny characters have stomped them time and again. And I can't recall any male on the show, ever, changing their behavior because they actually realized they/the males (HORRORS!) were in the wrong.

Today, I am watching the horrible episode where henry is mentoring an abusive non-custodial husband who just kidnapped his kid from school, who, OF COURSE, ends up at a fight-where-a-hockey-game-breaks-out with danny who jointly with henry decides that all is well, mom-is-an-unimportant-POS-and-/abusive-violent-dad gets to enjoy the game with kidnapped kid while someone or other makes a phone call to the inconsequential/unimportant female parent and all will be well.

Just NO.

I can't decide which I hate more - Henry or Danny.

I have become so disillusioned from any hope of females being shown  ANY respect on this show (with the occasional exception of Edie, who, I suspect is there for just this purpose) that I haven't even bothered with watching the last few couple of seasons first run.

I guess I am finally done with  anything having to do with this show - current season or rerun  - they are just too offensive to my sense of females as actual human beings, with rights and all that stuff, being trivialized and trashed.

Enough

Really

I loved Hill Street Blues,  and, particularly NYPD BLue - cop shows are a thing I have always liked - but this one, it just goes much to far beyond the pale of misogyny.

I agree.  The only other option would have been having Linda and Danny separate or divorce and that goes against the relationship they've displayed from the beginning.  If Amy Carlson wanted to leave, killing the character was the only option.

Regarding the renewal, I wonder how much longer Selleck wants to be doing this given his health stuff and how much he has slowed down. Of course, his character could retire and the younger generations would be fully front and center. But then, how many of the older viewers would still watch without Selleck?

They could put Selleck on a reduced pitch count, appear in fewer episodes. Maybe this would finally allow them to focus on only two storylines per week instead of three or four.

I heard (cannot verify) that Selleck wanted a two year contract last year but was offered only one year.  The renewal gives him that 2nd year.  For at least the past three seasons, I've been predicting it was the last and I've been wrong year after year.  That said, I don't think I'm wrong this time.  Sadly, Season 12 will likely be the last.

It wouldn’t surprise me if it only lasts another season or 2. Its 18-49 ratings have really fallen in the last couple of seasons, though the viewer numbers are still decent against the competition

That request was for season 10 and 11, which he didn’t get. He had to push that Blue Bloods got its own separate announcement for the season 10 renewal which included their 200th episode.

overall, not surprised it got renewed, because of what got the axe instead. 
 

Selleck only works 4 days an episode and it’s the last 4 days of one episode and the first 4 days of the next one, so it’s pretty reduced as it is. And yeah, he’s moving slower, but so long he feels he can do it, why not? I don’t see people complaining about Ed Asner showing up in Cobra Kai.  
 

The 18-49 demo is down for everyone across the board in live viewing. It does ok in that metric for dvr playback but normally is in the top 5 when overall viewers are counted and is still a big international seller. 
 

That said, I do wonder if it will get 22 episodes or less than that and by how much.

To be fair, Asner isn't in every episode of CK, while Selleck is in every episode of Bluebloods.

I'd be fine with that.  The show is still entertaining on some level but even good shows should end much sooner than 12 seasons.  I just hope it goes out on a good note.
