[[quoteright:350:[[Series/{{Arrow}} http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arrowservice_3977.jpg]]]]
[[caption-width-right:350:So we heard this show had a plot... or something like that.]]

* ''Series/{{The 100}}'': Bellamy and Lincoln are both very handsome men with absurdly well-sculpted bodies, and they each go shirtless at least once a season, culminating in them having a [[WorkoutFanservice shirtless sparring match]] with each other in Season 3. Can dip into FanDisservice, depending on your viewpoint, when they're forcibly stripped by Mount Weather in Season 2.
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'': Angel spends many of his ''Buffy'' appearances [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]]. He does this a lot in his show too, walking around in just a towel at times. He likes Tai Chi. He's often bound up and tortured. He's even been bound by a vampire dominatrix more than once. Plus there was that one incident that involved him [[HoYay falling on top of Wesley while nude]].
* ''{{Series/Andromeda}}'': Tyr was six-and-a-half feet of solid {{Hunk}} with long eyelashes and pouty lips, a racial tendency towards minimal clothing and "bad boy" behaviour and a tragic backstory.
* ''Series/{{Arrow}}'':
** Oliver Queen provides the page image for a reason: he gets a least one shirtless scene per episode, and is quite often shown [[WorkoutFanservice working out]] or sparring with his "bodyguard" sans shirt.
** Oliver's "bodyguard" Diggle gets to show off his own body once in a while; it's impressive.
** Roy Harper gets in on the action with a shirtless scene in episode 17.
** Slade. The promo for season two were basically a bunch of posters of all the mentioned characters in a shirtless state, showing off a lot of abs.
* It seems that Jack Donnelly must have it written into his contract that his character Jason must have his shirt off at least once an episode of ''{{Series/Atlantis}}''.
* ''Series/{{Banshee}}'' has plenty of scenes featuring its leading man either naked or at least shirtless.
* The original ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|1978}}'' had Apollo, Starbuck and Boomer in their 'skimpy' Triad uniforms (along with some other warriors). Starbuck and Boomer each have at last one ShirtlessScene in the entire show.
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'':
** Lee "Apollo" Adama is one of ''Galactica'''s surest sources of Estrogen Brigade Bait. Let's just say we're ''very'' happy about the amount of time the crew of ''Galactica'' spend in tank tops, or better yet, [[ShirtlessScene shirtless]]. Lee gets ''[[http://www.mikethefanboy.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Jamie-Bamber-shirtles-looking-hot-and-sexy-2.jpg a truly spectacular scene]]''in season 2 where he accidentally drops his towel in the pilots' locker room.
*** Creator/JamieBamber, who played Lee, has embodied (so to speak) this trope in the majority of roles that he's had.
** On the Cylon side: [[spoiler:Samuel Anders]] is Estrogen Brigade Bait personified. [[spoiler:Anders]] is naked in goo in "The Plan!" With hair.
* ''Series/BlakesSeven'': Tarrant was originally conceived as a battle-scarred middle-aged man. Then Steven Pacey turned up to audition and the producers saw the effect he had on the female office staff... Blake, Avon and Vila are all adorable, all often shirtless.
* ''Series/BloodTies'' had Henry Fitzroy. Not only is he a bishonen vampire with sexy curly hair and a tragic romantic past, but he spent large quantities of the story with his shirt off or ripped to shreds, lounging/writhing around in bed (again shirtless). He's also artistic, multitalented, superstrong, cute, chivalrous, and has a lot of funny stories about his past. All that, and he can give women orgasms with his bite.
* ''Series/{{Bones}}'':
** David Boreanaz's character Booth. "Booth is a big, strong, hot guy who wants to save your life. You actually have a knight in shining FBI standard-issue body armor, so cut him some slack."
** TJ Thyne [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3r3hEUxYlWc&t=2m2s at 2:02 in this clip]] is proof that the makers of the show love you and want you to be happy.
* Cesare from ''Series/TheBorgias''. The very first time we see him he's naked, and he spends rather a lot of time wearing [[DracoinLeatherPants tight leather trousers]] despite being a Cardinal, whose usual garb is not remotely sexy (unless you dig big red dresses).
* ''Series/BreakingBad'':
** Jesse Pinkman. Although usually subverted, with his baggy and ridiculously oversized clothes on display, but he does get his fair share of shirtless scenes in season 2. Although his attractiveness is rarely referenced in the show, in season three he gets a particularly fanservice-y scene where he is flat out flirting with the cashier while wearing more form fitting clothes than his usual attire. She even refers to him later saying "His eyes were ''really'' blue. Hank also refers to him as dreamy in the same scene based off her description.
** Tedd Beneke is often shown as shirtless or semi nude in a lot of his appearances.
** Interestingly enough, the fair share of nudity or semi nudity in this show deliberately comes from the old and average looking men in the show, so you could say this trope is averted for the two exceptions of Jesse and Ted.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Spike. The snark. The badassery. The fact that he spends most of season six of the show wearing NOTHING.
** Angel. Shirtless often. The man likes his tai chi. He really is something to look at, and he's often chained up and tortured. He's even been bound by a vampire dominatrix more than once.
* ''Series/BurnNotice'': Michael Weston, who spends a lot of time working out shirtless.
* In the 2003 ''Series/ChildrenOfDune'' miniseries, Leto Atreides II spends a large amount of his screen time looking like a shirtless Adonis.
* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'': Special mention must go to Captain Awesome, who is quite deliberately {{Fanservice}}, with the amount of screentime he spends wearing either very little, or something very tight.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'': Jeff Winger and his [[ItMakesSenseInContext naked pool game]]. Thanks to a scene involving Jeff, a locker, and a shirt that wasn't working, there's probably a lot of happy viewers (both female [[EvenTheGuysWantHim and male]]) after "Origins of Vampire Mythology". Also, raspy, sexy vampire!Jeff in "Horror Fiction in Seven Spooky Steps". Then there's shirtless, post-Hulk!Jeff in "Contemporary Impressionists". Aaand just to top it off; shirtless, leather pants-wearing, eyeliner-clad, gothed-up Jeff in "The First Chang Dynasty".
* ''Series/CriminalMinds'':
** Derek Morgan. He always wears those tight 'granddad' shirts, and when he's not wearing those, he's coming out of Garcia's bathroom naked all except for a tiny towel (well, in one episode anyway).
** Hotch has his moments, particularly if you like your men [[SharpDressedMan in a nice suit]], though when seen without it -- as in Season One episode after a [[SexyDiscretionShot fade-to-black]] with his wife -- he proves nearly as impressive as Morgan. And Reid gets a fair share of attention as well, for those who like their men [[PrettyBoy pretty]], [[{{Adorkable}} nerdy]], and [[DistressedDude in distress]]
* ''Series/TheCrown2016'': Creator/MattSmith as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, of all people. A few topless/nude scenes do a great job of showing off an impressively muscular physique. TruthInTelevision, since the Duke was a military man in his younger days and kept extremely fit. He was also widely considered to be devastatingly handsome, at one point being described as looking like "a viking god".
* ''Series/CoronationStreet'': Various male characters both past and present have been used for fanservice. Some examples being; Jason Grimshaw (Ryan Thomas), Nick Tilsley (Adam Rickitt/Ben Price), David Platt (Jack P Shepherd), Todd Grimshaw (Bruno Langley), Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) and Jamie Baldwin (Rupert Hill).
* ''{{Series/CSI}}'':
** One episode has Nick Stokes shirtless after he realizes his shirt has blood evidence on it, and asks lab tech Wendy to remove it. She seems quite pleased with the results.
** Several of the other guys on this show got this treatment two. An early episode in season 1 had Warrick Brown taking off his shirt and diving into a pool to search for evidence, and Greg Sanders and Sara Sidle were brought into a shower after they were in a contaminated scene. As Sara says "I saw everything."
* Danny Messer on ''Series/{{CSI NY}}'' at times. It's especially noticeable when he's only in his undershirt and on the promo poster modeled after the high rise construction workers' lunch, but he got one or two shirtless scenes onscreen too.
* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': Troy in Episode 3 has about two sex scenes [[spoiler: with Coco and later Nieka Hobbs]] along with a shower scene showing his bare ass.
* ''Series/DesperateHousewives'': John, Gabrielle's gardener, whom she was having an affair with. The series spends most of his screentime emphasizing his attractiveness (did he even own a shirt?), with Gabrielle busily ogling him in the background. It's pretty obvious he wasn't hired for his acting.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** Captain Jack from ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''Series/{{Torchwood}}'' is a character that flirts with anything with a consciousness. His appearances in ''Series/DoctorWho'', especially, make no qualms about spending a lot of time admiring him. A prime example is in the episode ''Bad Wolf'', where he is stripped naked on TV in front of millions of viewers. Jack is, perhaps unsurprisingly, ''delighted'' by this.
** This was not an uncommon role for male companions in the Classic series either, due to the relative rarity of conventionally handsome Doctors and the fact that the show took its 'family show' concept rather more literally in the beginning, very deliberately making sure that ''everyone'' [[MultipleDemographicAppeal in the family could find something to enjoy]], including [[ParentService dirty Mums]]. A good example is First Doctor companion Steven, who spends most of his time wearing very tight-fitting polo necks, getting restrained by female aliens, and smoldering, though some one-shot characters in the historicals fit the bill too.
* ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}'' has Paul Ballard, played by ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'''s Tahmoh Penikett, who was introduced boxing, shirtless, and wearing low, ''low''-riding pants. From there, he went on to take his shirt off in pretty much every other episode.
* ''Series/EngineSentaiGoOnger'': Not your typical Mr. Fanservice, but given the amount of times Sosuke Esumi appears in various states of undress, from a fairly ordinary shirtless bandaged scene in [=GP19=] to [[ItMakesSenseInContext going as far as pulling his pants down in order to get rid of an eel that slipped inside his clothes]] three episodes earlier, and despite the fact that most of these scenes were PlayedForLaughs, he could probably fall under this category. The fact that his actor is [[http://kurenaiwataru.tumblr.com/post/6426697510 actually quite attractive when he wants to be]] doesn't help matters.
* ''Series/{{Firefly}}'':
** Captain Malcolm Reynolds. His shirtless shot in ''Film/{{Serenity}}'' was quite blatantly {{Fanservice}}. In one episode, he was "left naked in the desert".
** TheMedic Simon Tam played by Sean Maher. There's his ShirtlessScene in "Objects in Space", and he looks very good [[SharpDressedMan in a suit]].
* ''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.]]
* ''Series/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.
* The titular ''Series/{{Galavant}}'' may qualify as this, as shots and/or scenes of him shirtless are quite loving and shameless. Taken {{Up To Eleven}} during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB13n49voyg this number]] from the season two premiere.
* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** Olyvar's Adonis-like physique leaves absolutely ''nothing'' to the imagination and he rarely keeps his clothes on through an entire scene.
** 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.
** Khal Drogo, appears in a WalkingShirtlessScene all the time. Coupled with his choice of attire and [[RatedMforManly his manliness]] (and his GuyLiner, which some fans would dig).
** Jaime Lannister shows up either naked or shirtless quite a few times, and has a rather nice voice. [[FanDisservice Though sometimes he is screwing his twin sister or suffering from debilitating injuries...]]
** The ridiculously handsome Jon Snow, who starts off Season Six in ''nothing'' but a skimpy towel around his waist and is of the TallDarkAndHandsome variety.
** Robb Stark gets quite a few nude scenes.
** Ramsay Bolton is an evil one, yes, but he's seen shirtless a couple of times and he's naked during his scene with Myranda in 'Kill the Boy'.
* ''Series/{{Glee}}'':
** Mike Chang. He can't sing, but Harry Shum, Jr. can dance. And we get to see his abs.
** Sam spends the majority of season 2 without a shirt for apparently no reason other than the fact that he has abs. Seriously.
** 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 Creator/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).
** The season four episode "Naked" has all of the guys posing for a "Men of [=McKinley=]" calender. Cue the montage of all of them working out in various states of undress.
** The ''Rocky Horror'' episode, featuring scenes like Finn walking down a full corridor in nothing but his underwear, Sam on a scene wearing just a pair of tiny golden shorts, Emma ripping Will's shirt off while singing a song about sex to him, and Finn and Sam taking a bath together.
* ''Series/GreenWing'': Mac with his blonde "lion's mane", and also a shirtless wrestling scene with Guy in front of a fire in one of Mac's coma dreams.
* ''Hawaii News Now'': The [[ShirtlessScene shirtless competitors]] in the "On The Radar" segment about [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOr5q8boXUk Spartan Race]].
* Peter Petrelli and [[EvilIsSexy Sylar]] from ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' regularly appear in scenes without their shirts on. The tendency to write this in for them is lampshaded in one DVD commentary in which the producers joke about receiving fan mail begging them to keep Milo Ventimiglia naked.
* Creator/TomHiddleston as Prince Hal/Henry V in the BBC's ''Hollow Crown'' series, particularly ''Theatre/HenryIV'' parts 1 and 2 and ''Theatre/HenryV''. At various points 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 ''Theatre/HenryV'' pretty much said that she knew she had a beautiful, beautiful actor and didn't want to waste an inch of him.
* ''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!)
* ''Series/{{House}}'': AwesomeAussie Dr. Robert Chase, HospitalHottie and such a pretty PrettyBoy that EvenTheGuysWantHim.
* ''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.
** Horatio Hornblower, portrayed by Creator/IoanGruffudd, has a lot of shirtless scenes, he swims and dives, and generally gets wet a lot. In "Mutiny", he even has a shower on deck completely naked and we get to see his bum.
** Captain Pellew is an older version of Mr Fanservice, but he's a manly man and very hot. He has some shirtless and getting-dressed or getting-undressed scenes.
** Archie Kennedy is played by Creator/JamieBamber who tends to be Mr Fanservice a lot due to his stunning good looks. Archie has many shirtless scenes, but some of them are marred by his being ill or wounded as they really tried to BreakTheCutie in the first series. He also tends to get wet.
** Mr Bush, played by Creator/PaulMcGann, has many moments where he is shirtless or almost shirtless, or where he is in wet clothes. Hot stuff.
* ''Series/HowToGetAwayWithMurder'': Connor, who manages to seduce information out of someone relevant to the case nearly OnceAnEpisode. [[StraightGay Said someones are also male.]]
* ''Series/{{Hung}}'' features Thomas Jane stripping in the opening credits, culminating in him jumping off a dock into a lake. Naked. With his rather nice behind on display.
* ''Series/{{Hustle}}'' has Mickey Bricks and Danny Blue (one of the most hyped episodes of season 3 involved the two of them being dropped off naked in the middle of London, and Danny has been known to strip off for ''no apparent reason''). Also, depending on your tastes, there's Ash "Three Socks" Morgan.
* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' has Kirihiko, who appears nude (in side/behind views) on three occasions. For this reason his [[FanNickname Fan Nicknames]] in Japan are "Shirihiko" or "Ketsuhiko" - ''shiri'' and ''ketsu'' both being slang for butt.
* ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'''s chronic victim of ClothingDamage Elliot Stabler. And really, let's thank the PTB's for ''that'', because Chris Meloni has a fantastic body. Not that we've never [[Series/{{OZ}} seen it before]].
* ''Series/LegendOfTheSeeker'': Richard is shirtless in the first scene… it just goes from there. It sets the tone that their fanservice is equal-opportunity. And with Kahlan and Cara (form-fitting leather, much?), it's a high bar he has to meet. Having the lowest neckline in the party helps.
* Kirby Atwood, Nico's lover in ''Series/LipstickJungle'', has at least one shirtless scene in almost every episode.
* Michael Landon, the creator and star of ''Series/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' obviously thought he was providing fanservice judging by how often his character had his shirt off.
* ''Series/LoisAndClark: The New Adventures of Superman'' Creator/DeanCain, 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.]]
** In the pilot Clark answers the door shirtless. Lois is rendered speechless for several beats and her eyes nearly fall out.
* ''Series/{{Lost}}'':
** The ultimate Estrogen Brigade Bait on ''Lost'' has to be Sawyer. What can we say? [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Girls like them bad boys]]. The numerous {{shirtless scene}}s probably don't hurt either.
%%** Sayid. Especially after seeing how well he cleaned up in "The Economist".
* ''Series/LostGirl'':
** Dyson: cute, sweet, hints at a... complicated past and frequently shirtless.
---> '''Kenzi:''' Now, can we talk about the elephant in the room? And by elephant I mean sexy, sexy wolfman.
** 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 unsurprising that Kenzi was [[EatingTheEyeCandy staring so much]].
* ''Series/ManVsWild''. Bear Grylls. An attractive survival expert goes around in the wilderness and works with his hands and inexplicably takes his clothes off a lot. One episode even revealed that he wears Union Jack undies. There was also that one episode where he had to take off ALL his clothes because they were all soaked. Cue a minute or so of him running around naked trying to get his body warm again. I think the other camera crew were snickering as well.
* ''Series/NoahsArc'' has a CastFullOfPrettyBoys, by Trey is a notable example in that he's portrayed as fanservice in-universe.
* ''Series/{{Oz}}'': Seeing as how it takes place in a prison setting, {{Shirtless scene}}s and {{shower scene}}s are rather prominent among the cast. All those rippling muscles... And the HoYay... [[GuyOnGuyIsHot *shivers*]]
%%** It has Chris Keller as the most prominent one.
%%** Ryan O'Reilly
%%** Tobias Beecher, especially when he [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys becomes tougher]].
* He may be 10 years out of his heyday, and overacted to annoying levels, but [[SixthRanger Tommy]] [[MemeticBadass Oliver]] of ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' still got just as many beach scenes as the girls.
* ''Series/RebeldeWay'': Francisco. He has nice fluffy hair; big, round puppy blue eyes, good abs and a cute smile. It helps he's often shown shirtless and many girls crush on him during the course of the second season.
* ''Series/RobinHood'': Richard Armitage. He's sexy no matter what, but in that one he has all the traits: broody bad boy with a sexy voice and all the qualms of a Brad Pitt about losing his shirt for the skimpiest of reasons.
* ''Series/{{Rome}}'': Marc Antony would. 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. When he's actually wearing clothes, it's often armour. Which women don't really tend to mind.
* ''{{Series/Salem}}'': John Alden with no shirt, sweaty from chopping wood.
* Seeing as ''Series/SexAndTheCity'' doesn't exactly ''need'' Estrogen Bait, Smith is a purer Mr. Fanservice than anyone on this list. An absurdly beautiful twenty-something hunk who is seen naked many, many times. His nudity in a play he was in was seized upon by Samantha to promote the hell out of it, and he later appeared on a billboard in Times Square with a conveniently placed bottle of Absolut. "My dick is three stories high!"
* ''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 Buckingham Palace in nothing more than a sheet, which he nearly loses for good during the scene.
* ''Series/{{Smallville}}'': In the very first episode, Clark is stripped to his underwear, tied to a symbolic cross, painted with a giant S on his chest, and left to hang there, sweating and helpless due to the Kryptonite around his neck. The very first episode. It's also the image on the First Season box cover.
* Jax from ''Series/SonsOfAnarchy'' is frequently naked, much to the delight of female viewers.
* ''Series/{{Spartacus}}''. Good lord, ''Spartacus''. Just about every gladiator introduced, including the title character, has some appeal. For the most part, they're all muscular and bronzed, [[WalkingShirtlessScene never wear shirts]] (or pants), and sometimes are shown in the nude, with everything on display.
* ''Series/StrikeBack'' features quite a bit of male nudity. Given that it's on Cinemax, this is probably to be expected.
* Ryan Shay from ''Series/{{Suburgatory}}''. He has had so many fanservice-y scenes that not even Tessa, who doesn't like [[TheDitz dumb guys]], could resist.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'':
** Brothers Sam and 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.
** Stubble-jawed, deep-voiced, blue-eyed shirtless PrettyBoy angel Castiel.
* 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.
** Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the dark and brooding Derek, has a body that has to be seen to be believed. The great thing is, the production crew seems to know this, given he works out shirtless ''at least'' once an episode. At least.
** Creator/TylerPosey plays the titular teen wolf, Scott, and gets to be near-naked, ''a lot''.
** Colton Haynes is the JerkJock Jackson. He's not a werewolf [[spoiler:until season 2, at least]], but there seem to be a lot of scenes of him changing in locker rooms.
** The scene in Season 2 when Derek hallucinates himself naked in the big empty white space for no apparent reason? It was literally added because Tyler Hoechlin had bulked up for the second season and he was surprised he didn't have any shirtless scenes.
** Jackson's GayBestFriend Danny, who like him is shown in the locker room shirtless multiple times. This probably added to his EnsembleDarkhorse status.
* ''Series/TrueBlood'':
** 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.
** Alcide, the series resident sexy, sexy wolfman. He goes to a wake and the female mourners are completely DistractedByTheSexy.
* ''Series/TheTudors''. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. [[ShirtlessScene Shirtless scenes]] a-plenty! Of course, he's not the only one in the male half of the cast who's hot.
* Creator/TV3 Sports in Spain has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efNouGJgkss this post game interview]] with a [[ShirtlessScene a sweaty, bare-chested and heavy breathing ]] Bojan Krkic.
%% * ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'': Most of the named male characters fit. They seem to have ShirtlessScene clauses in their contracts.
%%% List concrete examples of characters.
* Even highbrow drama ''Series/TheWestWing'' got in on the act. ''All'' of the isted characters lost their shirt more than once for absolutely no plot-related purpose whatsoever. Women had a ''lot'' of reasons to watch this show.
** The first four seasons had Rob Lowe as [[http://extras.inyork.com/yorkblog/flipside/sam.jpeg Sam Seaborn]]
** 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.
** 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.
* ''Series/WhiteCollar'': The [[TallDarkAndHandsome stunningly gorgeous]] Neal Caffrey (played by Matthew Bomer). He breaks out of prison to look for his disappeared [[spoiler:and possibly double-crossing]] girlfriend (troubled past, [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys "bad boy"]]), 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.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'':
** 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 [[Website/{{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.
** Assistant Director Walter Skinner got a few gratuitous shirtless scenes. He had quite a few fans.
%%* ''Series/TheNewNormal'' has Goldie's idiot husband, Clay.
%%* ''Series/{{Grimm}}'':
%%** [[FairCop Nick]]
%%** Captain Renard had a quite nice ShirtlessScene.
%%** [[{{Adorkable}} Monroe]]
%%* ''Series/{{Psych}}'', Shawn Spencer, season one.
%% * ''Series/LastResort'':
%% ** James King, Navy SEAL.
%% ** An honorable mention for Sam Kendal.
* James van der Beek [[AdamWesting as himself]] on ''Series/DontTrustTheBInApartment23''. Particularly lampshaded in the episode "Sexy People ..." where he walks into June's bedroom, spills a peach smoothie on himself so he has to take off his shirt, then spills it on himself again so he has to take a shower.
%%* Mitchell, from ''Series/BeingHuman''. Sexy Irish vampire bad guy turned atoner? Yes, please!
* ''Series/{{Pretty Little Liars}}'': The show probably has a clause in almost any male actor's contract demanding at least one shirtless scene throughout the series.
** Keegan Allen portraying Toby Cavanaugh in particular. Shirtless.
** Jason (portrayed by Drew Van Acker) who took off his shirt after playing basketball in the park.
* ''Series/{{Elementary}}'' has star Jonny Lee Miller frequently shirtless (including his introduction) and at one point is even tied to a chair shirtless. Hot.
* Soldier Richard Sharpe (Creator/SeanBean) from the TV adaptation ''Series/{{Sharpe}}''. He would often take off his shirt. It might look completely gratuitous, but he meant to show his men scars he got from flogging.
* Captain Hook from ''Series/OnceUponATime'' is a transparent example of this trope and {{Draco In Leather Pants}}. ''Many'' of the other male cast members qualify for the former, several for the latter as well.
* ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman'': Sully. He was often without his shirt and had some bathing scenes. Plus tossing a tomahawk shirtless must be one of the sexiest things ever.
* ''Series/MondayMornings'': Dr. Ty Wilson, a HospitalHottie, though only one of his scenes was blatantly fanservicey. He had one ShowerScene, implied to be a ShowerOfLove with his colleague.
* 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.
** Osborne was shirtless when he was ill and being taken care of lying in bed
** Roger was shirtless when he was hurt while being in Africa and it was very hot. The weather was, but the scene as well.
* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'':
** If you like muscles, Justin is the guy for you, ladies.
** Averted with Mason. You might expect Fanservice from him, but he is probably the one werewolf in existence to never lose his clothing.
* ''Series/ThePriceIsRight'' had female models for years until 2012 where the show finally used a male model. The trope is played straight and averted, depending on what the male model wears; the aversion comes from the male model that mostly wears a shirt and tie. Played straight when the male model is shirtless to showcase beach themed items like surfboards.
* ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' has a surprising number of shirtless scenes with Creator/NeilPatrickHarris and none of the ladies are complaining.
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'':
** Cole and Leo are the two greatest examples, and two sides of the same coin. Cole is a [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]], and fits the handsome bad boy type. Phoebe gets to play the fantasy of turning the bad boy good. By contrast, Leo is quite literally an [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]]. He plays the nice guy, hid under the guise of a carpenter (VERY helpful and VERY good with his hands, too!) and is all about [[LoveFreak love and goodness]]. And yes, both of them have had {{Shirtless Scene}}s.
** While Cole and Leo were both fairly developed and well-rounded characters, the pure MrFanservice would have been Dan from Season 2. Hunky former baseball player turned handyman next door, he seemed to only exist to stand around in tank tops and be that nice guy that Piper saw as her perfect life that she couldn't have with Leo at that point.
* ''MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': ''All'' the original four male rangers had the physiques of Greek heroes, and were often seen in tank tops and even occasionally shirtless to show them off. There was, at one point, a shirtless pillow fight between Jason, Billy, and Zack.
** Two lion-themed Red Rangers from different subsequent seasons are also good examples of this trope, and they just happen to have the same names as the aforementioned examples from ''Charmed'': Leo from ''Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' and Cole from ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', who both got to show off their surprisingly toy-accurate {{Heroic Build}}s through {{Battle Strip}}s in their respective seasons. In Leo's case, it was such an over-the-top moment (especially given that he morphed five seconds later) that it made it to his character introduction part in the opening credits.
* Carlos Fonnegra on ''Series/{{Continuum}}'', played by Victor Webster, is, well, in the words of [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]], a "Stump [=BeefKnob=]/Gristle [=McThornBody=]". [[note]]Check out the [[http://mst3k.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_Nicknames_for_Dave_Ryder list]] of [[TheWikiRule nicknames]] for Dave Ryder, as pretty much every one of them applies to him[[/note]] He's a beefy police officer that somehow manages to be both a pretty boy ''and'' ruggedly handsome at the same time. Just ''look'' [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005543/?ref_=tt_cl_t2 at him.]] In one episode, an attacker catches him by surprise in the shower, followed by a fight scene which he remains nude for the entirety of, complete with (since this ''is'' still on a mostly family-friendly television station) precise editing and camera angles. ''Very'' precise.
* [[TheCaptain Captain Kirk]] from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' was a frequent victim of ClothingDamage in his many fights. Not to mention how often he [[HoYay took calls from Mr. Spock while shirtless]].
* ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'':
** Trip took his shirt off plenty enough times to count for this. Trip is reduced to his undershirt and underwear on three separate occasions in season one alone. 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...
** Malcolm Reed was in his underwear a few times as well, and whenever he had a ShirtlessScene in the decon chamber, or was [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything sweating and panting]] [[WorkoutFanservice whilst sparring]] [[HoYay with Hayes]], I sure as hell wasn't complaining...
* Duncan on ''{{Series/Highlander}}'', between the shirtless scenes, flashback great-kilt scenes and two bathtub scenes. In one episode he threatens to get out of the tub. "I can't wait," is the response of the woman who'd burned his dirty old clothes.
* Victor Webster was Mr. Fanservice in ''Series/MutantX,'' where he played a TroubledButCute bad boy petty crook whose wardrobe seemed to be mandated at "Sleeveless or Less".
* Guest appearances on ''Series/{{Castle}}'' as the motorcycle-riding surgeon Josh Davidson (Victor Webster).
* In TV Land's ''The Exes'', Victor Webster played a scuffy homeless man; when Holly lets him use her shower, he comes out in [[http://img.poptower.com/pic-82390/the-exes-tv-land-show.jpg?d=600 nothing but a towel]] and leaves Holly stunned.
* Chef Robert Irvine of ''Series/DinnerImpossible'' and ''Series/RestaurantImpossible'' [[HeroicBuild works out and has an absolutely amazing body]].
* Even back in TheFifties they did this. OncePerEpisode in ''[[Series/FlashGordon1954 Space Soldiers]]'', Steve Holland would have a mandatory scene where he'd enter the cabin of his rocketship while still changing his shirt, revealing a well-muscled chest.
* Archie from ''Series/{{Riverdale}}'' is a hot redhead with a six-pack. The show and advertising both make certain that you are aware of this. Archie has his fair share of shirtless scenes as well.
