Twelve years is an awfully long time for any TV show to stay on the air, even an all-time great like this one. The ratings had been trending steadily downward since the end of Rick Schroder's first season and the budget kept going up. For the last year or two, the only thing keeping Blue on the ABC schedule was the fact that every new drama the network premiered flopped miserably. Once Lost and Desperate Housewives became huge hits, ABC finally had the security to retire Blue once and for all.

Though NYPD Blue had repeatedly incorporated nudity dating back to its pilot episode in 1993, this sequence from a 2003 episode led to a record fine in 2008, and a subsequent legal battle that went all the way to the Supreme Court. The series also pushed the boundaries of broadcast standards with language and descriptions of body parts never before uttered on primetime TV. This strategy had brought critical praise and helped distinguish it from other network television in an era of competition with cable networks. Jennifer Holt examines this landmark case in TV regulation in her essay in How to Watch Television.

This gritty, acclaimed crime drama from Steven Bochco elevated the genre and altered the boundaries of what network censors would allow. The series initially caused controversy with its frank language, realistic violence and nudity, but it became a critical darling, garnering 27 Emmy nominations in its first year alone. There were many awards (and cast changes) through the years, but Andy Sipowicz remained its haunted soul for the show's unforgettable 12-year run.
