Hulu's Favorites feature is an organizational tool to help you easily keep up to date with your favorite shows by adding newly released episodes to your Queue.
This feature is very similar to a magazine subscription. When you add a show as a Favorite, new episodes of that series will automatically be added to your Queue once they become available on Hulu. You can also be notified of these additions through email if you choose. But, like a magazine subscription, it will only send you the most recent episodes. If you want to view older episodes from previous seasons you will need to manually add them to your Queue via the respective show page. (For more information about using your Queue, please see this article)

Adding videos to your Favorites
To Favorite a show, simply visit a series' show page (e.g. www.hulu.com/community) and click the favorite icon.
With your Favorites list, you can easily keep track of shows that you're watching or interested in watching. To have episodes automatically added to your Queue, you can modify the settings by heading to your Favorites page and clicking Edit Settings next to the appropriate show. All episodes will add to your Queue any new episodes that are added to our site. For New episodes only, you'll receive only brand new episodes into your Queue.
In order to quickly access your Favorites, hover your mouse cursor over your Queue near the top of Hulu's home and TV pages.
To access your Favorites page, where you can add, remove, rearrange, or adjust the settings of each of your Favorites, just click on that same Favorites option under your Queue.
Organizing your Favorites
Organizing and ranking your Favorites is also a great way to share your tastes with your friends and find out how their lists compare. You can rearrange your Favorites on the Favorites page by either clicking the up and down arrows in the Order column or by manually inputting rankings into the numbered text boxes. You can also see which friends have added the same shows to their Favorites.
If you don't wish to share your Favorites with your friends, you can switch the Privacy drop down boxes from "Share" to "Hide." You can also hide all your Favorites as default in the Privacy Settings on your account.
Adding more Favorites can easily be done on this page by clicking the add more favorites button in the upper left above the Favorites list. This will give you the option to add Recommended shows, Most Popular shows, and enables you to search for a particular show you may have in mind and add it to your Favorites.
Setting up email notifications when a Favorite is added to your Queue
To sign up to receive email notifications when a show from your Favorites has added to your Queue, visit your Notification Management page and check the box under Favorites Alerts. To stop these emails, simply uncheck this box at any time.
Removing shows from your Favorites
To remove a show from your Favorites, click the (trash can) icon in the Remove column on the right side of the Favorites page.
