Family man. Hero. Dog Lover. What's not to like?

Let's be frank: Blue Bloods has lasted for 12 seasons thanks largely to the character of Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck), the tough-love family man who runs both the Reagan household and the NYPD with fairness and diplomacy. Here are just a few of the traits that make him television's best police commish and paterfamilias extraordinaire!

Watch Blue Bloods Fridays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
