Fans of "Blue Bloods" have expressed disappointment with the show's attempts at humor, particularly with character Danny Reagan's corny jokes. Actress Jennifer Esposito's comedic talents were also underutilized during her time on the show. Meanwhile, many viewers have criticized Nicky Reagan, Erin's daughter, for being an unnecessary distraction from more important plot points. Despite some arguing that Nicky serves as a counterbalance to other characters' conservative views, most agree that she is their least favorite member of the Reagan family. Her departure from the series in Season 10 was welcomed by fans who found her obnoxiously naive.
