The demographics of these shows all absolutely include a male audience of all ages, but they will statistically skew towards the fairer gender. Most of the shows feature strong female protagonists or ensembles consisting of memorable female characters. In fact, a lot of television series literally have the word "girls" in it. One example? Girls. In addition to the HBO hit, there are girls who are golden, girls who gossip, girls who are broke, a girl who is new, and girls who are... powerpuffs.

But, the best TV for female audiences aren't just girly shows, any show with a strong female character, relatable women, or great female friendships can be a great TV show for ladies. And where would television be without women like Mary Tyler Moore, Laverne, Shirley, Mindy, Lizzy McGuire, or Gidget?
