Tom Selleck fears loss of sprawling ranch when ‘Blue Bloods’ ends

Actor Tom Selleck has plenty of reason to be blue as the end of “Blue Bloods” could also spell the end of one of the TV icon’s beloved homes.
The mustachioed “Magnum P.I.” star, 79, admitted that if the CBS police procedural ends as scheduled in December, that he might have to give up his sprawling 63-acre ranch in California.
“Hopefully I keep working enough to hold onto the place,” Selleck told “CBS Sunday Morning” over the weekend, while promoting his memoir, “You Never Know,” on shelves Tuesday.


Asked if that’s really an issue, considering his six-decade career, the “Smokey and the Bandit” star said: “Of course. If I stopped working? Yeah.”
“Am I set for life? Yeah, but maybe not on a 63-acre ranch,” continued Selleck, who has starred on “Blue Bloods” as New York City Police Commissioner Frank Reagan since the show’s 2010 premiere. “As an actor, you never lose — I don’t lose, anyway — the sense that every time I finish a job, it’s my last job.”
CBS confirmed last week that the current season, the show’s 14th, will be its last. The second half is set to premiere in the fall.
CBS Entertainment President Amy Reisenbach delivered the news last week, noting the network “absolutely will miss the family dinners. It is important to give [the] show the send-off it deserves,” per Deadline.
Despite the cast begging the network to reconsider, Reisenbach said, “All shows have to come to an end. It’s important for us to refresh the schedule. We are going to end the show come December.”
Selleck told “Sunday Morning” he remains optimistic that “CBS will come to their senses” and save the show, which also stars Bridget Moynahan and Donnie Wahlberg.
“We’re the third-highest scripted show in all of broadcast, who are winning the night,” he said. “All the cast wants to come back. … We’re doing good shows and still holding our place. I don’t know.”
“Blue Bloods” was ranked number 7 out of Nielsen’s Top 10 in the week of April 8 to April 14, according to data from the famed marketing research firm.
