California public TV überlegend and famously incredulous broadcaster Huell Howser died Jan. 7, 2013, and KCET will remember him this week with a marathon that starts at 7 p.m. tonight.

The station asked viewers what their favorite Howser episodes were, and the Californians polled came back with this list:

  1. "In-N-Out"
  2. "Galco's"
  3. "50s Motels"
  4. "Golden Gate Bridge"
  5. "Firefall"
  6. "Springtime in Death Valley"
  7. "California Flowers"
  8. "Half Dome"
  9. "Pink's Hot Dogs"
  10. "Ansel Adams"
  11. "Hollywood Sign"
  12. "Palm Springs History Tour #1"
