‘Blue Bloods’: Danny and Baez Take on an Impossible Case

by Joe Rutland

Danny Reagan and Maria Baez work well on the streets of New York City. But the detectives from Blue Bloods are going to have a tough case.

At least that’s what we are told in looking ahead to next Friday’s episode on CBS.

Let’s give it some attention thanks to Matt & Jess. For some clarification, Donnie Wahlberg plays Danny Reagan while Marisa Ramirez plays Baez.

Now the Blue Bloods stars are looking at a case that they might not be able to solve.

Why not? Well, no one wants to talk to police officers in the area. The episode is titled “USA Today,” reflecting the situations officers find themselves in at times.

‘Blue Bloods’ Detectives Try Solving Case While Close-Knit Community Stays Silent

On Blue Bloods, it appears that a close community isn’t talking about someone who assaulted a shop owner.

Other storylines from next Friday’s episode include Erin Reagan, played by Bridget Moynahan, having suspicions about the D.A. after Erin gets a low-level case. Also,

Erin’s suspicions about her boss rise when the D.A. assigns her to a seemingly low-level case. Sid Gormley, played by Robert Clohessy; Garrett Moore, played by Gregory Jbara; and Abigail Baker, played by Abigail Hawk, feel threatened when Frank Reagan, played by Tom Selleck, adds a new staff member. The “dream team” doesn’t like it.

Anyway, this Blue Bloods episode will hit CBS this coming Friday at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. By the way, the following Friday will have a rerun. That’s Nov. 26, the day after Thanksgiving, and also “Black Friday.”

Other stars in the cast include Will Estes, Vanessa Ray, and Len Cariou.

Ratings Come In For Recent Episode ‘Be Smart or Be Dead’ on Friday Night

Meanwhile, Outsiders, let’s take a look at what those ratings for the most recent episode looked like.

That was “Be Smart or Be Dead,” which aired on Friday, Nov. 12.

In a story from TV Line, Blue Bloods ratings dropped a tenth week-to-week. Two Fridays ago on Nov. 5, 6.1 million tuned in; on Nov. 12, 5.7 million dialed in on CBS.

So, it’s a drop from 7.0 to 6.9 in viewership.

Why was there a dip in the week-to-week programming? No real reason has been offered.

Ideally, the CBS police drama will pick up the pace. Blue Bloods has been a solid performer for the network in that time slot.

Another storyline from the recent episode involves Eddie, played by Vanessa Ray. After her former partner left the police force, Eddie got a new one and his name is Luis Badillo, who is played by Ian Quinlan. There apparently is some conflict between both of them. Keep an eye on this and see how it is handled.
