There is always a moment in your life when you have a crush on somebody and think that person is cute and very pretty. Television is no exception. Since today is Valentine's Day, I figure its the right time to name your favorite TV Crush. It can be a TV actor or TV character from the past and/or present.

I know that she doesn't smile very often on 24, but I really like Chloe O'Brian.

Scott Patterson (Luke Danes), before the current season of Gilmore Girls. He's a modern Cary Grant. Handsome, charming, funny, clever. Perfect.

My biggest case goes back to my teenybopper days with David Cassidy.

Today, I'd say McDreamy truly is McDreamy, though I'm past the age when I would fantasize about an actor.

The list would be way too long if I named all my TV crushes since the beginning of my TV viewing history, but my current favorites are Wentworth Miller (Prison Break), Josh Holloway (Lost), and Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica).

I seem to have this sudden obsessive crush on Cesar Millan (The dog whisperer).
Maybe its the accent.....

Yeah, Patrick Dempsey is gorgeous, but this reminded me of the huge crush I had on Kyle Chandler. I first saw him on Homefront and then I watched him on Early Edition. I think I watched that show longer than I wanted to just to get a glimpse of him every week. And damn you, Grey's Anatomy for blowing him to pieces! Why couldn't you have made him a regular?

Right now it's Sayid on Lost. Not only is he hot, he can fix any mechanical device (he's the Iraqi McGuyver :), whip up a nice picnic on the beach, and build a jungle love shack! He can tie me to a tree and um, interrogate me any day.
Now, if only they'd give him more than 2 minutes of screen time...

I'm also becoming increasingly fond of George on Grey's Anatomy. He's a sweetie. I would've gotten rid of the dog before I'd even think of letting George move out of my house.

Before the bastards killed him, Vaughn on Alias. He was the only reason I continued to watch through the crap that was season 3. He's pretty. He even looked hot dressed up in Goth-gear.

And back when ST:DS9 was on, Dr. Bashir. So many fans hated him, but I loved him. I guess it helped that he was cute and had a nice accent, and that I was 13 when the show premeired. But to this day, I'll still watch pretty much anything Alexander Siddig has a part in.

ETA:

Why couldn't you have made him [Kyle Chandler] a regular?

Word. Blowing him up was stupid. He's a good actor and he brings the hotness.

Lilly Rush. Complex, troubled, intelligent, tough as nails (yet vulnerable!), dedicated, likes broken cats (my biggest weakness) and beautiful. What's not to love?
And my crush on Rachel Gibson is coming along nicely. Scared, but does her damnedest to suck it up and kick ass anyway.

Javier Vachon on "Forever Knight". Then again, I also had a major thing for LaCroix, especially when he did his Nightcrawler radio broadcasts. "If you love something set it free. If it comes back, it's yours. If it doesn't, hunt it down and kill it."

If I listed all the celebrity crushes I've ever had, we'd be here all night. (Oded Fehr, Hugh Jackman, Dale Midkiff, George Eads, Tom Selleck, Richard Dean Anderson, Scott Bakula, Jacques Torres, Sam Elliott, George Peppard, Alton Brown, Alan Rickman, Paul Gross...)

But one of my more recent ones is Max Mixson with the Houston ASPCA (Animal Cops: Houston).

I don't know why, but he's the main reason I kept watching AC: Houston, because my initial reaction was that there were already two animal cops shows, and they didn't really need a third one.

I still believe that, but I think I'm also developing a little crush for Lt. Michael Scott of AC: SF. It happened when that weeny little Chih fell for him so hard. I think I did, too. Heh.

Oh, me too! To me he looks like a slightly chubbier Bradley Cooper. Yum.

My newest favorite is Burke on Grey's Anatomy. He's just so, you know. Hot.

ITA! I always thought George was cute in a dorky-guy-who-needs-to-comb-his-hair kind of way, but I found him so sexy after the last ep. I loved when he was talking to Bailey, touching her face, and then jumped behind her to help her deliver the baby. Mrowr!

Funny, sweet, overall awesome guy I can see, but I just can't find George sexy. The post-Superbowl fantasy shower scene confirmed it. Now, Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) on the other hand, I like.

I think Joey Cheek is cute, too. And Sawyer on Lost. And Weevil on Veronica Mars. I'm a closet fangirl.

My absolute first was Kirk Cameron, shortly followed by Johnny Depp.

Most recently I had the major hots for Burton from Survivor.

Nowadays it's Benjamin McKenzie, Wentworth Miller and - don't kill me, I take plenty of flak for this, let me tell you - Robert Knepper.

It's bad, and wrong, but I can't help it.

Wentworth Miller and his character, Michael, are totally hot. They both seem like intelligent, caring, and hot men. He could give me his Blue Steel and his shirt off anytime.

I have a tiny girl crush on Summer Roberts from the OC. Granted, in real life, if I was gay or a straight male, I would never date her. But she [and the actress] is adorable!

Along those lines, both the characters that Adam Brody portrays, Seth from the OC and Dave from Gilmore Girls are characters that I would gladly date. They have "quirky" interests, and really sweet guys.

Oh, you poor dear. Okay, I loved him too. It just sort of makes me sad now.

Since it seems to be going around these days, I'll admit I loved Kyle Chandler. I watched Homefront, I watched Early Edition, I watched him become "pink mist" on Grey's Anatomy *wails*. He's awesome and cute and I wish I could take him home with me.

Funny, sweet, overall awesome guy I can see, but I just can't find George sexy. The post-Superbowl fantasy shower scene confirmed it. Now, Dr. Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington) on the other hand, I like.


I never found Isaiah Washington attractive before Grey's, but he is oddly hot there. I didn't really find George sexy until the last episode. Then, well, if he'd walked by me, I would have jumped him in the middle of the hallway. And since I'm talking about Grey's Anatomy any way, let's mention Derek. God is he hot. I always thought Patrick Dempsey was odd looking as a young man, but good lord, were his 30s good for him.

So many to choose from...lately, I have been watching my Angel DVD's so Wesley Wyndham-Price (Alexis Denisof) has to be at the top of my TV crush list. My all-time laminated crush list would be this:
  • Byron Sully (Joe Lando)
  • Michael Vaughn (Michael Vartan)
  • John Crighton (Ben Browder)
  • Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard)
  • Ben Covington (Scott Speedman)
  • Alternate: Wesley Wyndham-Price (Alexis Denisof)
I just love Wesley. From his first goofy-uptight introduction on Buffy to his scruffy bad-boy in season four of Angel, he just does it for me. It doesn't hurt that he's super-hot and has an awesome accent. YMMV, of course.

I want in on this . . .

Hell yes. I can't believe Pam - one of the better female characters on TV - hasn't dumped stupid Ray yet.

I am on board with the George love, also.

Loved Josh Randall on Ed, but cannot stand Courting Alex, so I had to give him up.

Also: Bradley Whitford. I don't know what it is, but I love that man.

Going back in the day, I have to go with Fred Savage, and I know people are laughing their asses off at me, and I don't care.

Hell, no, I'm not laughing. Fred Savage was my very first TV crush. I was only 9, but in my head, Kevin Arnold was totally my boyfriend. I even tried to grow my hair long like Winnie, but my curly hair wouldn't cooperate.

Longest running crush on a fictional character would have to be Jordan Catalano (Jared Leto). I actually used to break into hysterical giggles whenever he was on the screen. You know that line Angela says, "You're so beautiful...it hurts to look at you"? That completely expressed my feelings.

Current crush would have to be Jim Halpert, on The Office, which several people have already mentioned. Stop by the subforum! It's tons o' fun!

Now and forever, my #1 TV crush is Jordan Catalano from My So-Called Life, even though he kinda sucked as a boyfriend.

I also have a cartoon crush on Goliath from Gargoyles.

My first tv crush was Dr. Doug Ross. George Clooney was gorgeous and so hunky. I still like him but I am not fan girl crazy like I used to be.

My new crush: Doug Wilson from "Trading Spaces". Yes I know he is a cad and a nuts designer but something about him just makes me want to jump him.

For my girlcrush it's a tie between Susannah from "Ballroom Bootcamp" and Giselle Fernandez from "Dancing with the Stars". Both ladies so sweet and so funny. Both so sexy and flexible.

Edited becuase incorrect spelling is not hot.
