Aloha Friday #76

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What’s your favorite television show?

    Criminal Minds
    Desperate Housewives

  3. TheAngelForever says:

    Grey’s Anatomy is probably first, but close behind are Private Practice and Desperate Housewives.

  4. jaime says:

    it depends on the moment… but the top 3 would be the amazing race, burn notice and grey’s anatomy

  5. Just Mom says:

    I don’t watch TV very often, not even weekly, but when I do get control of the remote and choose not to use it to mesmerize my trouble making duo, I would watch shows like Dr. G Medical Examiner and other real life emergency shows and reenactments or birth shows.

  45. Beth says:

    I watch so few shows because I fall asleep aroung 8:30 pm these days. I’d say 30 Rock is my favorite show.

    Grey’s would be my first choice but a tie for the rest! Private Practice, CSI Miami, Without a Trace!

  75. Sharinskishe says:

    The first thing that came to my mind was Gilligan’s Island. I loved that show as a kid.

    However, I had a lot of favorites and still do. We don’t have TV in our home right now, but I love to watch ‘24′ online. Alias was another favorite.

    Thanks for asking!


  76. Erin @ Closing Time says:

    It is hard to narrow it down to one. I think my top pick is Lost — I’ve watched it since the very beginning and haven’t missed an episode.

    I also really like Chuck and Heroes.

    And then there is 24 — I’ve watched all the seasons, and some are better than others. This year it is great!

  77. Tena says:

    You have never asked a question I can’t answer, this is a mean one! Just one…. I can’t do it!!!
    Okay at this very moment, since it is almost Sunday night I will say The Tudors

  78. Elle says:

    I’d have to say The Amazing Race because I watch it every week with my 10 year old DD and we have fun watching it together.

  79. Erin @ Closing Time says:

    This is my first time to participate in Aloha Friday (see my answer at #82). I just wanted to ask if there is a way to get the code for the Aloha Friday button to put on my post? I’ve seen several others that have it on theirs. Right now I have just posted my question and linked back to the post here, but it would be great to have the button too.

  80. JamericanSpice says:

    My favorite television show right now is NCIS

  81. Desert Songbird says:

    I really hate to admit how much TV I watch, but since I’ve been holed up in bed so much lately, I must admit to watching tons of NCIS, The Closer, and all the Law & Orders. I also can’t wait to see the return of Rescue Me next week!!!!

  82. Shannon says:

    I love to watch tv online. My favorite SHOWS are Lost, Castle, 24, and Lie to Me. They are awesome!

  83. Shelley K says:

    I thought OH what an easy question…until I really thought about (dang…I watch a LOT of tv!! Big Love on HBO is a fave. Grey’s Anatomy (Seriously!), Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty. True Blood (HBO), Tudors (Showtime), and LOTS of reality TV!!

    I love reality TV but also crime shows like cold case

  85. angela says:

    I love reality TV but also crime shows like cold case 2

    CSI is the one that I look forward to every week! I also like Law and Order: SVU.

  88. Sarah says:

    My can’t miss shows are 24 and Lost. Love them both!

    Project Runway!!!!!

  90. Forgetfulone says:

    That’s hard because I rarely watch anything unless it’s on DVD. My time can’t be scheduled in incremements, so I wait for the season to come out on DVD and watch it at my leisure. I like Grey’s Anatomy, 24 and Prison Break.

  91. Charlotte (Life's a Charm) says:

    does American Idol count?

    I watch so much TV it is scary! I love these shows:

    The Closer
    United States of Tara
    Law and Order SVU
    Saving Grace

  93. TwoHeartsTogether says:

    Desperate Housewives has been on my TV every Sunday night since season 1 (2005) gotta love the it :)

  94. Lisa C. says:

    wow… that’s a HARD one.. if I had to pick just 1? probably battlestar galactica, if it was still on.. lol. so, i guess…. Heroes, with Lost in a close second…

  95. Jennifer says:

    Desperate Housewives

  96. Deborah says:

    The Office
    Australian Idol

    I just nominated you for the Attitude of Gratitude Award! I hope you will accept.

  100. Emily says:

    It changes all the time, but right now it’s 30 Rock. I just started watching the new HBO show No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, though, and it seems like it could be a serious contender for new favorite.

    I have too many to list but right now I’m dying for the new season of Californication to begin!

  102. Jen says:
