📺 Watched Face The Nation Episode aired on 12-25-16

Face the Nation from CBS, December 25, 2016
CBS' "Face the Nation" reflects back on 2016 and looks ahead to the coming year, with guests Stephen Colbert, host of "The Late Show," and our panel of CBS News correspondents.

I’ve been sitting on this for a few weeks and glad I kept it. Colbert gives a much more serious interview than I would have anticipated. His concept of not playing for teams is an interesting one.

"Blue Bloods" Not Fade Away S7 | E11 from CBS, January 13, 2017
With Joseph Anderson, Narada Campbell, Omar J. Dorsey, Jeff Leaf. When Danny accepts a side job as a bodyguard for a recently released ex-con who took the fall for someone else, he uses the opportunity to go after the real criminal. Also, Gormley's wife, Sheila (Cady Huffman), asks Frank to give Gormley a bigger command position, and Jamie and Eddie witness a lovers' quarrel between two cops that leads them to reflect on their own complicated relationship.

A relatively up the middle episode. Good to see Baker get in some more significant screen time–perhaps a present before she’s away on maternity leave?
