'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 14: Donnie Wahlberg directs 'Manhattan Queens'

Someone who certainly knows the turf called the shots on the latest "Blue Bloods."Series co-star Donnie Wahlberg made his directing debut on the CBS police drama with Friday's (Jan. 31) episode, "Manhattan Queens." He also continued to have a major presence in his weekly role as Detective Danny Reagan, who began the hour hiking through woods with partner Maria (Marisa Ramirez) to the location of a decomposing body.Maria noted the expensive dress on the victim, who also sported a wig Danny referenced ... prompting him to reason the cops were onto "a story with an unhappy ending."As Nicky (Sami Gayle) left for school, Erin (Bridget Moynahan) walked part of the way with her, dressed for a morning run. After the mother and daughter separated, Erin noticed a van seemed to be following her. She turned into an alley, and as she looked back at the vehicle, a blanket was thrown over her and she was... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/blue-bloods-season-4-episode-14-erin-kidnapped-in-donnie-wahlberg-directed-manha.html

'Blue Bloods': Donnie Wahlberg is debuting director

"It's no pressure, coming after our two highest-rated episodes since the pilot. No pressure for me at all."So says Donnie Wahlberg, wryly, about his directing debut on CBS' "Blue Bloods" Friday (Jan. 31). He also remains very evident as an actor as his weekly character, NYPD Detective Danny Reagan, and partner Maria Baez (Marisa Ramirez) probe the murder of a reality-show-star drag queen. Meanwhile, Danny's prosecutor sister Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is kidnapped by a woman who wants a new investigation of her son's drug-related murder case."It was a challenge, but it was a lot of fun," Wahlberg tells Zap2it of working both sides of the camera. "I've kind of known that I would eventually direct at some point ... but I guess I've just watched so many directors go through so many challenges, I've always thought, at the end of the day, 'Maybe I'm more of a producer than a director.'"It's something I was always... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/blue-bloods-donnie-wahlberg-debuts-as-director-i-guess-i-did-it-the-right-way.html

TV ratings: ABC scores demo wins while CBS takes Friday

Fast National ratings for Friday, Jan. 17, 2014It was another solid Friday night for the usual suspects on ABC and CBS, with the triple whammy of "Undercover Boss," "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods" snagging the night's most viewers, while ABC pulled wins in the 18-49 demographic with "Shark Tank" and "20/20." Unfortunately, the low debut for FOX's new comedy "Enlisted" wasn't a fluke, with 0.4 million viewers dropping out from premiere week -- which wouldn't actually that big of a drop if the number weren't so low in the first place. CBS won the night overall with an average 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/11 household share. ABC trailed behind with 6.3 million (4.2/7), while NBC nabbed 5.2 million (3.3/6), FOX got 4.5 million (2.7/5) and The CW trailed with 801,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.In the 18-49 demo, however, ABC pulled ahead with an average of 1.7 for the night, with CBS earning... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/tv-ratings-abc-scores-demo-wins-while-cbs-takes-friday.html

'Blue Bloods' Season 4, episode 13: Two cases involve 'Unfinished Business'

Past events can fuel present problems, as the Reagans' latest cases taught them anew.Written by co-executive producer Siobhan Byrne O'Connor, Friday's (Jan. 17) episode of CBS' "Blue Bloods," "Unfinished Business," set Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Maria (Marisa Ramirez) on the trail of Army veteran John Russelll (guest star Chad Michael Collins), who had assaulted his wife, Maryann (guest star Kelli Barrett), and taken their son Tommy (guest star Michael Capperella) from his school.The Army, as represented by Maj. Harrison (guest star Terry Serpico), wasn't happy that Danny had started an investigation without clearing it with him first. A struggle over jurisdiction began, with Marine veteran Danny noting, "I understand protocol. I just don't like following it."During a press conference on a weapons-selling bust, Frank (Tom Selleck) was confronted by Betty Lowe (guest star Karen Allen), who asked him "why I can't get justice for my daughter. And her killer is out there, and you don't... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/blue-bloods-season-4-episode-13-two-cases-involve-unfinished-business.html

'Blue Bloods' Marisa Ramirez would like to be invited to dinner

Zap2it: You've hardly had any screen time with Tom Selleck on "Blue Bloods," but how do you find him?Marisa Ramirez: I don't even really get to be there when he's filming anything. I'll usually be in hair and makeup when he's doing that, so it's not like I've gone onto the set and watched him, but he has been very sweet to me ... and warm and kind and generous and supportive. That's helped, especially being a newcomer.Zap2it: Do you think your character, Maria, ever will be a guest at the weekly Reagan family dinner?Marisa Ramirez: I don't know! Maybe not as a guest. Maybe she'll drop off some doughnuts or something. Or maybe she'll knock on the door by accident, see what's going on and say, "Hey, I'm kinda hungry. Can I sit?" It would be nice to be invited, but I'm OK to just stay on the work front.Zap2it: "General Hospital" and "The... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/blue-bloods-marisa-ramirez-would-like-to-be-invited-to-dinner.html
