\n* ''Film/TheBlingRing'' is almost an entirely female-centred story, with teenage girls robbing celebrities' clothes and jewellery. The only prominent male character is also gay. But all four female leads - including Creator/EmmaWatson - are continually done up to the nines, walking around in sexy outfits and showing off their beauty. Marketing even centred around Emma Watson on {{Fanservice}} duty, abusing one shot of a seductive tongue roll for advertisements.



* The producers of ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' tried to invoke this around the fifth season and so made sure the actresses' clothing was as sexy as possible. They also created plenty of episode plots where the sisters would be transformed into various magical creatures that required a different skimpy outfit. Alyssa Milano got the worst of it; a common joke was that her belly button deserved its own billing in the opening credits. (In fairness, a series with Shannen Doherty, Creator/RoseMcGowan, Creator/HollyMarieCombs, and Alyssa Milano was always going to have this.)

Season 8 adds the beautiful Kayley Cuoco to the line-up as well.

\n* ''Series/GossipGirl'' in the same vein as ''Mean Girls'' is about elite high school girls and features a lot of cattiness and girl-oriented stories. But the fact that it's two leads are the fantastically beautiful Creator/BlakeLively and Creator/LeightonMeester, and later on Jessica Szohr and numerous stunningly pretty guest stars - and the camera [[MaleGaze letting you experience their beauty to its full extent]] - gave plenty of straight men opportunities to tune in.

* ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' has a diverse following that the creators actively nod to, complete with scads and scads of ShoutOuts. The following has been likened to that for My Little Pony, even spurring the epithet "Brobies", but "Dreamhousers" (as they prefer to be called) reject the comparison.

* ''Series/DesperateHousewives''. Its description on this wiki even describes it as "not a porn mag, but a US TV drama." At the height of its popularity, Creator/{{ABC}} even ran an ad with a guy admitting he watched it… and (unconvincingly) claiming that it was [[IReadItForTheArticles for the story]]. Riiight.

* ''WebAnimation/BeeAndPuppycat'': A cartoon heavily influenced by [[ShoujoDemographic Shoujo]] anime, which only needed two short episodes to become one of the most popular animations from Cartoon Hangover, along with ''WebAnimation/BravestWarriors'', which seems to be well liked by male viewers who enjoy stuff like ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Considering that it was created by [[http://adventuretime.wikia.com/wiki/Natasha_Allegri an artist from that series]] this isn´t very surprising.

** This is invoked in the first ''AmericanPie'' with Jim gushing over how hot Ariel is (a sentiment Norm Peterson shared years before in an episode of ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' and Joey Tribbiani shared years later in a late episode of ''Series/{{Friends}}'').

* ''Anime/SailorMoon''. While it is primarily a shoujo anime, it has quite a bit of a male following as well, with all the Sailor Senshi being really hot, kickass {{action girl}}s. (A story about a young {{Moviebob}}, while working as a video store clerk, explaining this to a customer is recounted [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/9931-Moviebobs-Re-Tales.2 here]].) There are Testosterone Brigades for approximately all ten of the female leads.

** Also invoked in an episode of ''TheBigBangTheory'' when the girls get a Disney Princess makeover at Disneyland. When Penny walks into Leonard's apartment he immediately drops his pants after seeing her dressed as Aurora. Howard does pretty much the same thing. Poor Amy fails to get Sheldon's attention.

* ''Series/PrettyLittleLiars'', being aimed at girls, has an amazingly high amount of good-looking guys in the cast. It also has an amazingly high amount of good-looking ''girls'' in the cast (Creator/TroianBellisario, Creator/AshleyBenson, Creator/LucyHale, Shay Mitchell, Janel Parrish, Sasha Pieterse, Tammin Sursok...), a trait shared with most of its fellow Warner/Alloy series like ''Literature/GossipGirl'' (which featured Creator/BlakeLively, Leighton Meester, and a young Creator/TaylorMomsen) and ''Series/TheLyingGame''.
