In fact, we have been expecting the favorable decision of CBS. Indeed, the procedural series has lost only 4.87% of its viewing audience. Besides, the eighth season has received mostly acceptable reviews from both critics and viewers.
The season premiere has garnered over ten million viewers (10.039) with a 1.15 key demo among adults 18-49. The figures were steady during the entire season. Accordingly, nothing is surprising that CBS has opted to renew the show. The twelfth episode titled "The Brave" has drawn 10.168 million viewers, for instance. As mentioned above, the current installment of Blue Bloods has received a positive reception from the target audience. On Rotten Tomatoes, the eighth season holds a score of 4.3/5 and an 88% approval rating among the viewers. However, on Metacritic, the indicator was a bit lower, 5.0/10. Meanwhile, an overall score of Blue Bloods on IMDb is still pretty high, 7.5/10 ~ 25,800 votes.
Of course, it's clear that the viewership of Blue Bloods is gradually decreasing. But the drop in the viewing audience is insignificant. Besides, the percentage of decrease from season to season is barely perceptible. As a result, we tend to believe that there would be more seasons of Blue Bloods on CBS soon.
