The renewal of the police drama series came as no surprise, as the show has been one of CBS’s top performers since its 2010 debut and in the previous, fifth season, has averaged 11.3 million viewers per episode. To date, just a few episodes into the current season, Blue Bloods is averaging 10.64 million viewers per episode, which is a small 5% decline when compared season-to-season.
