Normally, it works to gain at least a portion of the audience. If you do a search for any TV show, you'll assuredly find the people that watch almost entirely because they think a member of the cast is attractive. Don't believe me? Go ahead and Google Supernatural and start counting the women that have almost no interest in the show outside of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.
So, while I'm personally not one of those people that watches a show specifically because of the women in it being attractive, in the interest of fairness, I figured I'd throw a little notoriety to the characters and women in the shows that I watch that I admit would fit that bill.
If I were living in the universes that these television shows exist, who would I have a thing for? Here's ten of them, in no particular order:
Sameen Shaw (Sarah Shahi), Person of Interest
Sarah Shahi kind of came out of left field on the series, but has truly grown into becoming a person of interest if you'll forgive the horrible pun. Her character, Sameen Shaw, is far too brutal to handle, but she's undeniably sexy in virtually every scene that she's in, whether she's flirting for the sake of her cover, having way too much fun shooting someone or just lounging around drinking a beer.

Penny (Kaley Cuoco), The Big Bang Theory

Skye (Chloe Bennet), Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Out of all of Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, by far the standout is Skye, played by Chloe Bennet. Melinda May and Gemma Simmons are nothing to overlook, but they're still outmatched to an insane level by Skye. She's a bit of a pill and a pain in the ass, but she's just got that "it" factor and it's coupled with, well, this appearance:

The Mother (Cristin Milioti), How I Met Your Mother
While Cristin Milioti was not what I had been imagining all these years while trying to figure out what The Mother would look like, almost immediately upon her introduction into the series, I "got it". As someone who realizes that he's extremely like Ted Mosby and has been told the same thing by quite a lot of people, I can see why the character falls in love with her. She's cute. Scratch that, she's extremely cute. She's pretty goddamn adorable, and without even trying. And she has cookies that are supposedly awesome called Sumbitches. The Girl with the Yellow Umbrella = a'okay in my book.

Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs), 2 Broke Girls
Which of the 2 Broke Girls are hotter? Many people would go with Max (Kat Dennings), but she's too damaged and overbearing for me. Caroline Channing, on the other hand, despite her tendency to be prissy and self-absorbed, won me over in the crush department with her relationship with Andy in season 2. With season 3, there hasn't been much development in that department, but her charm and let's face it, freaky tendencies still carry over from the last go-around. Plus, we know she's got to get that money back eventually, and being rich never truly hurts, does it?
Detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Pretty, cute when she's looking all sad, and most importantly intelligent (at least within this squad), give me Amy Santiago over Detective Diaz any day. I'm surprised I had never heard of Melissa Fumero before, but I have a feeling that she has a future on TV even if Brooklyn Nine-Nine doesn't, though I'm hoping this character and the show can stick around for a while longer.
Charlotte "Charlie" Matheson (Tracy Spiridakos), Revolution
She's much cuter when she's now scowling and, you know...murdering people like her psychopath uncle. But despite all that, Tracy Spiridakos manages to keep her femininity in a series where she's given a ton of tomboy characteristics and surrounded by such an impossibly bleak set of circumstances that she should for all intents and purposes just hang herself and get it over with.
Annie Edison (Alison Brie), Community
Even though Community hasn't come back yet for this season, it was renewed and as such, my crush on Alison Brie will be renewed once more. Though Britta (Gillian Jacobs) certainly has her own positives, by far the one who takes the cake on this show is Annie Edison, who manages to be adorable and humbly gorgeous whilst maintaining a bit of an edge. FYI, she previously won out the "marry" vote in a Marry/Fuck/Kill that I had done in the past.
Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), Arrow
This is a CW show, so it naturally is just filled to the brim with people that look like models. Season 1 gave us McKenna Hall (Janina Gavankar), Huntress Helena Bertinelli (Jessica De Gouw) and others while season 2 is featuring Summer Glau. Hell, even Moira Queen has held up well as an older woman. Before the start of this series, I naturally assumed that Katie Cassidy's Laurel Lance would be the woman I'd be most into in terms of a potential in-universe crush, but over time, the Felicity Smoak character has grown on me to the point of surpassing her. Plus, Laurel's kind of a whiner and overdramatic. Felicity is a bumbling mess, but that's part of her appeal. She's the "everygirl" that you take home to meet your parents, instead of the super sexy villainess or hero.
Though to be honest, all these women aside, I can fully admit that the most charming person on this entire show so far has been the character of Tommy Oliver. How you fangirls don't have a crush on him, I have no idea. Just saying.
Brie Bella (Brianna Garcia), Total Divas
For those that don't know, on top of Fanboys Anonymous, another website of mine is Smark Out Moment, dedicated to professional wrestling. As such, when WWE announced their newest show, Total Divas, I was pretty much forced into checking it out for at least one episode. I ended up liking it quite a bit, mostly because of the "behind the scenes" feel and getting to know the people behind the characters more (even though it's still at least partially scripted, like most reality shows). One of those people that surprised me was Brie Bella, aka Brianna Garcia. She comes off very personable and quite pleasing. Unlike her twin sister, who is the more seductive and sexual type, Brie has this lovely calmness to her and seems to be a genuinely caring person. For my money, she's the more attractive of the Bella Twins.
There you have it! Ten of the women that are on my television screens that I can't help but have a thing for.
