It probably comes as no surprise that there are Blue Bloods fans in just about every corner of the world. But it is pretty impressive when you have a former president and first lady as loyal fans of the show.
Blue Bloods is without a doubt one of the most popular shows on the air today. The police drama follows members of the Reagan family — a family with deep ties to New York City law enforcement. The show stars Tom Selleck as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan. Other members of the star-studded cast include Donnie Wahlberg who plays Danny Reagan. He is a seasoned detective on the force and the oldest son of Frank Reagan. It also features Bridget Moynahan as Erin Reagan and Will Estes as Jamie Reagan.
However, it was the man behind Danny Reagan who told CBS This Morning back in 2014 that two of the biggest fans of the show just so happen to be a former president and a former first lady. Donnie Wahlberg said that Hillary Clinton once told his wife that she was a huge fan of the show.
“I heard the Clinton’s are big fans as well right?” one of the co-hosts asks Wahlberg. “
“Well, yes. My wife actually was interviewing Hillary Clinton last year, and Hillary came off the stage and said, ‘I just have to tell you that I love ‘Blue Bloods,'” Wahlberg explained. “‘Bill and I watch it every Friday night.’ I was like, ‘Really?!'”
And in typical Donnie Wahlberg fashion, it didn’t take him long to make a joke out of the situation.
“I said, ‘Let’s go to their house and watch it next week,'” he laughed.
‘Blue Bloods’ Season 12 Premiere Date Revealed
Don’t worry all of you Blue Bloods fans out there — the hit show will be back before we all know it. On Monday, the official Twitter account for the show recently revealed the premiere date for Season 12. It will be October 1.
“We’re gathering around the dinner table again!” the show’s Twitter account wrote. “The new season of #BlueBloods premieres on October 1.”
It was just back in April that we found out the network would be bringing back the show for Season 12. That milestone in itself means that the show has been on the air longer than Magnum, P.I., the hit series that Tom Selleck starred in the 1980s. Selleck told People Magazine that Blue Bloods is built to go on for a long time.
“I don’t think there is an endpoint,” Selleck said of the show. “I think there is a lot of life in the show, as long as you let your characters grow and get older.”
