This fall, we’re getting a whole new batch of costume dramas, paranormal creatures, badass detectives, blended families, dysfunctional parents and more coming to a small screen near you. You will probably be planning your viewing based on interesting plots, preferred genres and other very important criteria, but we just thought we’d bring to your attention another factor in this very visual medium: the hotness of its cast.
Not that we’re saying this matters as much as, say, the number of Emmys a showrunner has under his/her belt. It’s just nice when a show is hilarious (Trophy Wife, The Crazy Ones), exciting (The Blacklist, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) or just plain juicy (Reign) AND has pretty people to look at. Sorry, is it bad to be shallow while watching TV? We didn’t think so.
