Women are their most beautiful in the morning: no makeup, hair wild, in their natural state.
And with that positive note, here’s the annual, albeit late, list of the sexiest women on TV, most of them actresses but not necessarily. As always, the caveat is no cable, on shows everyone can watch.
15 Amy Acker–Person of Interest
Amy’s whacked-out psycho has quickly become the best part of this show, particularly after seeing her so timid on Dollhouse.
14 Maggie Lawson—Back in the Game
A not-very-famous actress I’ve enjoyed for years, probably since Cybill. Love her girl-next-door demeanor and looks.
13 Cobie Smulders–How I Met Your Mother
Nine years into this show, she’s still so gorgeous.
12 Jill Wagner–Wipeout
She returned and the show went right back to the awesomeness it had before she’d left.
11 Ming-Na Wen–Agents of Shield
Such a classically beautiful woman; even though I couldn’t stand her character on Stargate: Universe, and Melinda May acts a lot like her, this role has to be a lot more fun for her as well as the viewers.
10 Bellamy Young–Scandal
Her sweet role as Hotch’s girlfriend on Criminal Minds is likely a thing of the past, but even if her character here is too much, she’s still lovely to look at. . .
9 Mircea Monroe–Hart of Dixie
While not as gorgeous as she was in Drive—as a redhead—her amazing blue eyes are well worth a worshipful gaze or two.
8 Michelle Borth–Hawaii 5-0
Every year she’s on this list, and every year she’s on a different show; it’s the mark of a quality actress to be so in demand.
7 Molly Quinn–Castle
College-aged redhead whom I saw in a play a few months ago. Such a nice girl. . .
6 Missy Perygrym–Rookie Blue
Also met her this past year, and she and her show just get better every year. Also a sweet lady in person. . .
5 Kristin Kreuk–Beauty and the Beast
While the show is a sacrilege compared to the amazing original, I could watch her ethereal beauty forever. . .
4 Kaitlyn Black–Hart of Dixie
Once again the best thing about the show. Those eyes. . .
3 Darby Stanchfield–Scandal
Have yet to meet her—someday—but I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s exactly like her character, all that sassiness with a pinch of Meredith from Castle. . .
2 Daniela Ruah–NCIS: Los Angeles
Holy crap, she’s not first this year! Even after I met her in person after a play. Sweetest person ever to be in Hollywood.
1 Chloe Barret —Agents of Shield
Daniela certainly didn’t lose anything, we just have a newcomer of exceptional beauty who can also do excellent comedy while showing plenty of intelligence. Joss Whedon sure know how to pick ‘em. . .
Rudabeh Shabazi and Bri Winkler
When Rudabeh is anchoring the channel 7 news on weekend mornings and Bri is doing the weather. . . let’s just say no one’s listening, just watching. . .
