Bridget Moynahan credits improved writing for preventing ‘Blue Bloods’ from becoming stale


“Blue Bloods” has a high audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes and has kept viewers interested for over 250 episodes. Bridget Moynahan, who plays Erin Reagan, credits the writers for the show’s longevity and entertainment value.

Despite a saturated market of cop shows, “Blue Bloods” and the Reagan family dynasty continue to attract viewers each season.

While performances are often credited for the show’s longevity, Bridget Moynahan believes it’s not just the actors but also another group associated with the show that deserves credit for its enduring success.

Blue Bloods is fortunate to have such talented writers, according to the actress.

Bridget Moynahan credited the show’s fresh approach in its eighth season to continuously improving writing in March 2017, as “Blue Bloods” reached the coveted 150-episode milestone. She emphasized the writers’ dedication and commitment to generating smart ideas and storylines, preventing the show from feeling stale after seven years.

Bridget Moynahan continues to commend the “Blue Bloods” writing staff, and their consistent efforts have paid off with the show’s renewal for a 13th season.

With an average of 9.8 million viewers (according to Variety) per episode in its Friday night slot on CBS, the series remains one of the most-watched scripted shows, as reported by Variety at the end of 2021 and the beginning of the 2022 season (via Variety).


In a time dominated by big-name titles, including “House of the Dragon,” “Stranger Things,” and “The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power,” shows like “Blue Bloods” still manage to stand out.

Bridget Moynahan suggests that crediting the resilient writing is wise, as it keeps the cr1me drama from fading into obscurity.
