“Blue Bloods” boasts a remarkable audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has captivated viewers for over 250 episodes. Bridget Moynahan, who portrays Erin Reagan, attributes the show’s enduring success to its dedicated group of writers.

In a saturated market of cop shows, “Blue Bloods” and the Reagan family dynasty consistently draw in viewers each season. While performances are often acknowledged for the show’s longevity, Moynahan emphasizes that it’s not only the actors but also the writers who deserve credit for its staying power.

Moynahan lauds the show’s talented writers, particularly noting their fresh approach in the eighth season. In March 2017, as “Blue Bloods” reached its coveted 150-episode milestone, she commended the writers for their dedication to generating smart ideas and storylines. This commitment prevents the show from feeling stale after seven years, ensuring a constant evolution.

The actress continues to commend the writing staff, whose consistent efforts have led to the show’s renewal for a 13th season. With an average of 9.8 million viewers per episode in its Friday night slot on CBS, “Blue Bloods” remains one of the most-watched scripted shows, as reported by Variety at the end of 2021 and the beginning of the 2022 season.

In an era dominated by high-profile titles like “House of the Dragon,” “Stranger Things,” and “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power,” “Blue Bloods” stands out. Moynahan suggests that acknowledging the resilient writing is a wise move, ensuring the crime drama maintains its relevance and doesn’t fade into obscurity.
