What Blue Bloods Tries To Avoid In Its Season Finales

"Blue Bloods" sets itself apart from other network procedurals by being a character-driven show that focuses on the dynamic relationship of the Reagan family. Unlike other shows, "Blue Bloods" tends to avoid cliffhanger endings in its season finales, opting instead to deliver realistic character conflict rather than nail-biting suspense. For Tom Selleck, who plays Frank Reagan, this decision was made out of respect for the audience's intelligence and understanding of the stakes of a network TV show. While cliffhangers are a fun part of the TV viewing experience, creating meaningful conflicts between characters is what keeps viewers coming back to the series week after week.
