News for Blue Bloods

'Blue Bloods' Season 4, Episode 9: Maria runs into very personal 'Bad Blood'

Thanksgiving is coming for the Reagan family, too -- but if their anticipation of the holiday wasn't tempered by crime concerns, it wouldn't be "Blue Bloods."Maria (Marisa Ramirez) had a particularly rough time with family matters in "Bad Blood," Friday's (Nov. 22) episode of the CBS police drama written by co-executive producer Daniel Truly and directed by Robert Harmon, who also has worked with series star Tom Selleck on all but one of the "Jesse Stone" TV movies.A murder investigation began for Maria and Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) outside a Spanish Harlem bar, but they soon went in to interrogate the very enthusiastic, soccer-watching patrons. They came up empty on suspects, until a security tape revealed someone Maria recognized (guest star Kirk Acevedo, "Oz") .Danny and Maria went to find the man, nicknamed "Tic-Tac" -- and while chasing him, Maria made a side run at him, sending him through a store's glass door. Surprised by her... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/blue-bloods-season-4-episode-9-maria-runs-into-very-personal-bad-blood.html

'Blue Bloods': Marisa Ramirez performs a sister act in 'Bad Blood'

If anything can propel a supporting player to a series' forefront, it's to give the character a problematic relative.Thus, Marisa Ramirez -- alias Detective Danny Reagan's (Donnie Wahlberg) NYPD partner Maria Baez on CBS' "Blue Bloods" -- gets considerable screen time in Friday's (Nov. 22) episode "Bad Blood." Kirk Acevedo ("Oz," "Fringe") guest stars as Baez's estranged brother "Tic-Tac," an ex-drug addict who's the prime suspect in a murder she and Danny probe."You finally get to learn a little bit of the backstory of Maria," Ramirez tells Zap2it, "at least between her and her brother. You also find out why she became a cop ... it had to do with him."Danny is still trying to support his partner, and when you have family involved in real life, you would be taken off the case. Because they're so close as partners, though, he wants her to be there for whatever she can do for her brother."Happy... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/blue-bloods-marisa-ramirez-performs-a-sister-act-in-bad-blood.html

TV ratings: 'Bones,' 'Raising Hope' drop in Friday premieres

Moving to Fridays was not good to the ratings of "Bones" and "Raising Hope" on FOX. Both shows dropped significantly from their most recent airings -- "Bones" on Monday (Nov. 11) and "Raising Hope" last spring in its season finale.Only the smallest bit of consolation for the FOX shows can be found in the fact that ABC suffered ratings losses for all of its programs, while CBS saw "Undercover Boss" drop."Blue Bloods" on CBS won the night in total viewers, with 7.3 million watching over the 10 p.m. hour. ABC's "Shark Tank" had the highest Friday ratings in the 18-49 target demo.CBS led the night overall with 6.1 million viewers and a 9.96 rating/11 share in households. ABC was next (4.0 million, 6.0/7), followed by NBC (3.2 million, 4.8/5) and FOX (2.3 million 3.7/4). The CW landed at the bottom of the night with 0.7 million viewers and a 1.0/1 share.

'Blue Bloods,' Season 4, episode 8: Frank, Danny and Jamie all try to see 'Justice Served'

Dining out can be dangerous.So Frank (Tom Selleck) discovered after having dinner with Angelo Gallo (guest star Chazz Palminteri) -- a boyhood friend who happened to be a Mob lawyer -- in Friday's (Nov. 15) "Blue Bloods" episode "Justice Served," written by series co-executive producer Siobhan Byrne O'Connor. The men left the restaurant jovially, but right after Frank's car pulled away, the attorney was felled by two bullets to the back.Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) was getting a taste of another side of the law by serving jury duty. Young defendant Deshawn Williams (J. Mallory-McCree) was on trial for the murder of a deli cashier, and when the jurors went into deliberation, only one held out for a "not guilty" verdict. Guess who?Eddie (Vanessa Ray) was excited about a date with commodities trader Jake (Jason Ralph), and when Jamie (Will Estes) playfully asked if he knew she was a cop, she said such information is "a real... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/11/blue-bloods-season-4-episode-8-frank-danny-and-jamie-all-try-to-see-justice-served.html

'Blue Bloods': Vanessa Ray's mom is a show superfan

For her research on "Blue Bloods," Vanessa Ray didn't have to go much farther than her own mother.The actress who plays Eddie Janko, the new partner of NYPD officer Jamie Reagan (Will Estes), on the Friday CBS police drama didn't realize how helpful her mom's devotion to the show would be until she landed the role."When I got the job, she sat me down and gave me the lowdown," Ray muses toZap2it. "She told me who all the characters were and that Jamie had a girlfriend in the beginning, but that didn't work out.
