List Rules Most beautiful women appearing in current prime time TV shows on a major US TV network.

The sexiest girls from current primetime network television, ranked by – yes – hotness. These women found an audience of enthusiastic men after starring on popular network TV programs, and have remained staples of magazine covers (particularly men's magazines or so-called "lad mags"), the late night talk show circuit and even major Hollywood films ever since. Blake Lively turned being the "Gossip Girl" into a career in blockbuster films, while Alison Brie appears frequently on talk shows and in alt-comedy circuits following her breakthrough role in "Community." Plus, she also appears on the basic cable drama "Mad Men." Not to mention "New Girl" star Zooey Deschanel, who has become the icon and standard-bearer for adorkable girls everywhere!

But who are the MOST attractive women to make their name on primetime television? It can be a challenging question when you consider not just how many beautiful TV actresses are out there, but how different and varied their styles and sensibilities are. Is there an intelligent way to put Sofia Vergara's beauty up against, say Dianna Agron? Or to truly compare "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan? Or to quantify the natural gifts of "2 Broke Girls" ingenue Kat Dennings? (No, not like that!) It's just going to be subjective. Hence, this list, determining the Ranker Community's overall picks for hottest primetime TV starlets. Have at it!
