Well, Blue Bloods fans, you have the Astros, Braves, and Nielsen ratings to blame for missing out on a new episode of Reagan family action this week. It’s sweeps week, and that means network television is saving up its content for the four weeks in November when its viewership is the most important. But ratings are the last thing on Blue Bloods fans’ minds. They didn’t take too kindly to a rerun episode on Friday night.

Imagine the disappointment of fans who didn’t get the memo and spent all week looking forward to “Good Intentions.” The fifth episode of Blue Bloods Season 12 is set to air on November 5, but that’s a week too late for the Reagan family faithful.

One fan in Australia is nearly an entire day ahead of us and missed out on her Saturday afternoon dose of Donnie Wahlberg.

No Blue Bloods, and to make matters worse, Live PD is still off the air? This Twitter user can’t seem to catch a break.

If CBS has to delay another episode of Blue Bloods for some reason, we may very well end up with a riot on our hands.

Fret Not, ‘Blue Bloods’ Star Tom Selleck’s ‘Enthused’ by Season 12 Scripts

If Tom Selleck’s excitement for Season 12 means anything to you, then the wait for episode five should be worth it. Still, there are some sad realities underneath it all. Sean Reagan actor Andrew Terraciano is taking a page out of Sami Gayle’s book and is leaving for college this season.

“I’m very, very enthused about the first few scripts. I know young Sean [Andrew Terraciano] is leaving. He’s going to college. That presents issues for Danny [Donnie Wahlberg],” Tom Selleck told Parade in September.

Selleck himself was excited for the difference of opinion his character shares with the mayor to play out. It’s a storyline we’ve seen throughout the first few episodes of the season. Thankfully, Frank Reagan has decided to stay on as commissioner… for now.

“The quality of life in his New York City, as well as New York City by all standards, has gone down. And he really gets sideways with the mayor, who has drifted to another point of view. He’s really at odds with Frank, and that whole relationship is severely tested. You’re really dealing with a guy who can fire him,” Selleck continued.
