* ''Series/LoisAndClark: The New Adventures of Superman'' Dean Cain, not just because he was the typical handsome athlete in tights, but also because in some promotional material, he appeared in a white tank top rather than the traditional costume. He and Lois did it a lot, [[spoiler: after they got married.]]

** Gendry Waters, [[spoiler: Robert Baratheon's bastard.]] He comes in two flavors: sweaty, shirtless, pounding away at an anvil, or sweaty, shirtless, tied down to a bed.

* Creator/TomHiddleston as Prince Hal/Henry V in the BBC's ''Hollow Crown'' series, particularly ''Theatre/HenryIV'' parts 1 and 2 and ''HenryV''. At some point in the plays he's: in tight leather, [[SexySoakedShirt soaking wet]], [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] (and wet) (and [[ModestyTowel wearing only a towel]]), in leather trousers that draw attention to his crotch, sexing up a prostitute (not in the original stage directions), and wearing armor so tight it's not a surprise that he was sewn into it by the costume department. The director of ''HenryV'' pretty much said that she knew she had a beautiful, beautiful actor and didn't want to waste an inch of him.

** Hale. During one episode, he is thrown up on and Kenzi has to take off his vomit-stained shirt. Kenzi is so distracted by his abs she forgets about her disgust. His abs are fantastic though, so it's unsuprising that Kenzi was [[EatingTheEyeCandy staring so much]].

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}'' did this mostly by accident in the first season, when Benedict Cumberbatch impressed with the way he twirled his coat. In the second season, though, the show was definitely aware of the effect the actor and the coat had on the viewers, considering all the talk about cheekbones and acting mysterious. And naturally the fandom rejoiced about Sherlock visiting the palace in nothing more than a sheet, which he nearly loses for good during the scene.

** Jason, the very athletic, insanely pretty, endearingly good hearted, a bit insecure, and often-naked (thank you) Good Ol' boy.
** Season Three hit the ground running! In the opener alone, we had [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]] HoYay with Sam and Bill [[spoiler: which turned out to be an EroticDream on Sam's part]], more naked Jason, and more naked Eric. We're clearly being spoiled now.

* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'': The MiniSeries has a lots of sexy scenes with attractive eye candy sailors in nice uniforms, or in various states of undress, and even completely naked. The lead takes the cake, but his mentor and his fellow officers have their fair share of fanservice-y moments.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HalloK3'': Bas has quite a few shirtless scenes for a kids show, even when it is completely unnecessary like in the first episode of season 3, where Kristel wants him to take off his shirt so she can massage him better (Yeah right) and a daydream sequence of Kristel imagining him as Tarzan and she as Jane (He even had another shirtless scene in the same episode!)

** Blaine is an interesting case. He plays an out and proud gay student, but the female fans can't get enough of him (particularly because he's played by the handsome DarrenCriss). The writers have taken notice (an episode of season four gives the fans substantial FemaleGaze in the form of a close up on his bum as he bends over in slow motion).

** [[WalkingShirtlessScene Khal Drogo]]. Coupled with his choice of attire and [[RatedMforManly his manliness]] (and his GuyLiner, which some fans would dig), he's also very charismatic and intelligent as a leader, and becomes a sweet lover and husband towards Daenerys as the series progresses.

* While almost all of the boys in ''Series/RebeldeWay'' are attractive, Francisco fits the trope the best by default. Not only does he have nice fluffy hair; big, round puppy blue eyes, good abs and a cute smile, but he's also sweet, friendly and funny. It helps he's often shown shirtless and many girls crush on him during the course of the second season.

* ''Series/{{Rome}}'' has a few, but Marc Antony would probably be considered the main one. We don't know much about his troubled past, but he loves to run around in little (read: no) clothing, and he definitely has the sexy voice. Plus, when he's actually wearing clothes, it's often armour. Which women don't really tend to mind.

* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''. Brothers [[Creator/JaredPadalecki Sam]] and [[Creator/JensenAckles Dean]] Winchester fight the forces of evil, and even (''especially'') when sweaty and bloody they're smoking hot. There have been numerous {{shirtless scene}}s and a few [[ModestyTowel towel scenes]]. Sam in particular is built like a brick house. Add [[PermaStubble stubble-jawed]], [[PowerMakesYourVoiceDeep deep-voiced]], [[InnocentBlueEyes blue-eyed]] PrettyBoy [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]] [[Creator/MishaCollins Castiel]] to the mix, and you've got a trio of drool-worthy men. An EstrogenBrigade has formed to worship them.
* The TV remake of ''Series/TeenWolf'':
** While not being the most critically-acclaimed show in the world, has succeeded above and beyond in the eye candy stakes. The entire male cast is gorgeous, and werewolf or human, there are multiple shirtless scenes in every episode.

** The entire main male cast, along with plenty of LGBTFanbase. The male characters display far more fanservice than the female ones. An argument could be made that Series/TrueBlood is made for the ladies first and foremost since it has a female lead and was written by a woman. [[CuteMonsterGirl Jessica]] was likely added so that the guys would also have someone to obsess over.



* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'': Most of the named male characters fit. They seem to have ShirtlessScene clauses in their contracts.
* Even highbrow drama ''Series/TheWestWing'' got in on the act. The first four seasons had Rob Lowe as [[http://extras.inyork.com/yorkblog/flipside/sam.jpeg Sam Seaborn]], who was replaced by Joshua Malina as [[http://westwing.bewarne.com/images2/willbailey.jpg Will Bailey]].

And then there was Jimmy Smits as Presidential candidate [[http://assets.texasmonthly.com/images/magazine/issues/2010-10-01/tvtexans/8_Santos.jpg Matt Santos]] in the final two seasons. ''All'' of the above lost their shirt more than once for absolutely no plot-related purpose whatsoever. Women had a ''lot'' of reasons to watch this show.

He also likes sculpting and painting wearing nothing more than a pair of sweatpants.

* The authors of 1999 version of ''Series/WivesAndDaughters'' couldn't resist and had both most prominent male characters shirtless. It doesn't feel gratuitous even though it's a PeriodDrama set in late RegencyEngland/ early UsefulNotes/VictorianBritain because Osborne was ill and being taken care of lying in bed, and Roger was hurt while being in Africa and it was very hot. The weather was, but the scene as well.

He even spends half of one episode saving the day wearing this under combo. whenever he (or any other male character, for that matter, but Trip especially) used the decontamination chamber. Cue shirtless gel-lathered muscle rubbing scenes. Not that [[MsFanservice the female characters didn't get their fair share of this,]] though...

* Basically the entire male cast of ''Series/{{Merlin}}''. After all, when you have a show that includes Creator/AnthonyHead burning people at the stake and swaggering around in leather as King [[strike: Giles]] Uther, Creator/BradleyJames waving a sword about, looking like a posterboy for Medieval Abercrombie and taking his shirt off at least once every two episodes as [[KnightInShiningArmour Arthur]] and Creator/ColinMorgan doing magic, crying a lot and overloading the screen with cheekbone as [[TheWoobie Merlin]], I think it's more or less fair to say a wide range of tastes are being catered for. And that's not forgetting [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sir Leon]], [[SelfMadeMan Lancelot]], the various generally not unattractive [[VillainOfTheWeek Villains of the Week]] (who have included Adrien Lester, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Will Mellor and Joseph Mawle) and... er... [[CoolOldGuy Gaius]]. Oh yes, even Gaius has his fans... And then [[LovableRogue Gwaine]] shows up (also often shirtless) in series three. And Percival (aka He-of-the-Sleeveless-Chainmail)! Thank you Gods of Fanservice!
