Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheFlash2014''
** Eddie is a friendly, blonde hunk with a square jaw and a well-built frame. This seems to be his intent, as he freely admits to Barry that he was a short, fat kid in the past.
** Barry isn't as obvious, but he is a cute guy in his twenties who every now and then gets a ShirtlessScene. [[spoiler: Even the disfigured "Savitar" version of himself is seen by some as a case of EvilIsSexy.]]

* 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 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!

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ''FridayNightLights'': Being a show about high school football, this is more-or-less true of most main cast players. But Tim Riggins takes it to another level.

** 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.

* Even highbrow drama ''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]]. Both were catnip to geek-loving girls. Bradley Whitford as [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/01/Josh_Lyman.jpg/250px-Josh_Lyman.jpg Josh Lyman]] developed an incredibly devoted fanbase. 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.

* ''WhiteCollar'': The [[TallDarkAndHandsome stunningly gorgeous]] Neal Caffrey (played by Matthew Bomer, who used to be Bryce Larkin, see above) He breaks out of prison to look for his disappeared [[spoiler:and possibly double-crossing]] girlfriend (troubled past, [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys "bad boy"]], check, check), flirts with every woman he meets, and has been known to study law books shirtless (incidentally, his impeccable taste in everything makes him look good no matter what he is or isn't wearing). 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 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.

** Fox Mulder. He's got it all, the tragic backstory, the sexy voice, and the smokin' hot body. The TropeNamer for Estrogen Brigade Bait was the David Duchovny Estrogen Brigade from [[{{Usenet}} alt.tv.x-files]]. Mulder's an especially noteworthy example because unusually for an American show that wasn't particularly aimed at a female audience, Mulder spent a ''lot'' more time not fully clothed than Scully did.
