Selleck told the hosts of CBS This Morning he looks forward to the family dinner scenes because it gives him time to catch up with his cast mates. He spoke about how grateful he is to work for such a successful show and why he loves shooting family dinner scenes with the Blue Bloods cast. “On an episodic show with an ensemble, you [sometimes don’t] see your fellow actors for a month. On our show, every eight days, that’s how long it takes us to shoot, we have a little actor family get-together in addition to the family dinner. I love all these people and they’re fine actors, so it’s kind of a double bonus. It’s hard work because you gotta eat for eight hours,” said Selleck.
