List of TV shows with the hottest casts. This list of the sexiest ensembles on television includes popular primetime dramas and hit sitcoms that viewers love to watch over and over again. From the sexy lifeguards of Baywatch in their red bathing suits, to the muscular firefighters of Chicago Fire, to the tailored suits and chic dresses on Mad Men, the following television programs offer some really good eye candy for viewers from all walks of life. 

One of the first primetime series to feature a hot cast is the action drama Charlie's Angels, which aired on ABC from 1976 to 1981. The original Angels included 70s bombshells Farrah Fawcett, Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson. The show's executive producer Aaron Spelling was also responsible for two of the sexiest casts to ever appear on TV in the 90s -- Beverly Hills, 90210 and Melrose Place, which all featured young, hot tv actors that viewers tuned in just to watch. Today, some of the most sizzling stars of the small screen are on popular supernatural shows such as The Vampire Diaries and True Blood. The gorgeous cast of Riverdale may be portraying teens, but the actors themselves are all very attractive adults. There are even some bad shows with a great cast on this list - plus many of these steamy shows are available on Netflix.

Be sure to vote for the TV show that you think is truly worth of the most sizzling cast of all time and re-rank this list your way. And since we know you can't get enough of gorgeous people on television, check out these lists of the hottest girls on primetime TV and the best new shows of 2013.
