CBS’s “Blue Bloods” is currently airing it’s 13th season and the is easily one of the most successful shows on the network!
“Blue Bloods” has been a huge moneymaker for CBS for years so you would think that the channel would respect the cast members as the years go by but that doesn’t seem like the case.
During CBS recent renewals, Blue Bloods was not included but according to Deadline, the show is in active renewal negotiations with proposed budget cuts among the points that need to be hammered out.
Apparently it’s normal for broadcast networks to ask for budget reductions on long-running series which naturally become more expensive as they age and when it comes to Blue Bloods, the network wants a pretty deep cut, putting the show’s future in danger. There’s rumor that a deal is almost made for a Season 14.
After reading this information, it just makes us sad for the cast and crew because it sounds like they’re not being respected at all during the meetings. What’s your thoughts?
Blue Bloods stars Tom Selleck, Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, Will Estes, Len Cariou, Marisa Ramirez, and Vanessa Ray. Recurring players include Abigail Hawk, Gregory Jbara, Robert Clohessy, Steven Schirripa, Will Hochman, Rosyln Ruff, Ian Quinlan, Stacy Keach, Peter Hermann, and Stephanie Kurtzuba. The show revolves around the Reagans, a multi-generational family of New York City cops that’s dedicated to law enforcement. Patriarch Frank Reagan (Selleck) is the New York Police Commissioner and runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family. His unapologetically bold father, Henry (Cariou), previously served a stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son, Danny (Wahlberg), a seasoned detective, family man, an Iraq War vet. Danny sometimes uses dubious tactics to solve cases with his partner, Detective Maria Baez (Ramirez). Frank’s daughter, Erin (Moynahan), is a New York Assistant District Attorney. Frank’s youngest is Jamie (Estes), a Harvard Law graduate and the family’s “golden boy.” He passed on a lucrative future in law and follows in the family footsteps as a cop. Eddie Janko (Ray) is Jamie’s wife and a fellow officer.
