TV Guide Picks TV's 60 Sexiest Couples

I know the last time I shared a list that TV Guide put together, I admitted to being a TV junkie.  Even though that was years ago, I'm pretty much in the same boat.  So I'm still reading TV Guide, I'm still checking out there website about once a day, and I'm still fascinated by the lists they put together.  Now most of the time, including this one, I'm not always agreeing with the lists, but at least it gets me thinking about my favorites.

This time around the put together what they think are the 60 sexiest couples to grace a TV screen.  Now obviously, they have a different idea of what is sexy, but I'm even okay with most of the list that I would have not put on there, because I do understand their reasoning.  Something odd about this list, they did a top ten, then listed the remaining 50 alphabetically by show.

1.   Doug and Carol from ER
2.   Rob and Laura from The Dick Van Dyke Show
3.   Angel and Buffy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

11.  Gomez and Morticia from The Addams Family

13.  Michael and Sydney from Alias

36.  Tony and Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie
37.  Ricky and Lucy from I Love Lucy

38.  Steve and Julia from Julia

40.  Michael and Grace from L.A. Law
41.  Shane and Carmen from The L Word
42.  Don and Megan from Mad Men
43.  Jake and Amanda from Melrose Place
44.  Tony and Ziva from NCIS
45.  Nick and Jess from New Girl
46.  Bobby and Diane from N.Y.P.D. Blues
47.  Jim and Pam from The Office
48.  Rick and Lily from Once and Again
49.  Prince Charming and Snow White from Once Upon a Time
50.  Beecher and Keller from Oz
51.  Ben and Leslie from Parks and Recreations
52.  Bailey and Sarah from Party of Five
53.  Remington and Laura from Remington Steele
54.  Daniel and Emily from Revenge

55.  Clark and Lois from Smallville
56.  Sonny and Cher from Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour
57.  Donald and Ann Marie from That Girl
58.  Michael and Hope from thirtysomething
59.  Bill and Sookie from True Blood
60.  Damon and Elena from The Vampire Diaries

A couple of my thoughts on the list, I don't understand why of the few gay couples to grace a TV show, they chose Steven and Luke from Dynasty.  Their relationship was so calm, that it was hard to find a picture of them together.  The other couple they chose was Beecher and Keller from Oz, a violent couple that was only together because they were in prison.  Instead I think Brian and Justin from Queer as Folk should have been included.  It was a May/December romance that heated up in and out of bed, had more problems than any other couple I've ever seen, but there was such a huge depth of love between them, that even though they went their own way at the end of the show, you knew they would end up back together.

And as much as I love Luke and Laura from General Hospital, what about Erica and Jack from All My Children.  They sizzle together.  Now matter how many times they break up, marry other people, have children with someone else, fight, piss each other off, they are always there, together.  For that matter why not, Ryan and Greenlee, Jesse and Angie, or Zack and Kendall, all from the same show.  They are all great couples, better than some of the others on the list.  Lets not even get started on all the other soaps, One Life to Live has some great couples, couples deserving of being on the list.  I'm not sure about the other shows, because I never watched them, but I'm sure there are some couples who are bigger than the New Girl couple, a couple nobody will remember in a few years.

I did find it interesting that at least two actors made the list twice.  The gorgeous David Boreanaz for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bones, and Larry Hagman from Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie.  So if TV Guide ever does a top 60 list of the hottest actors, they both better be on it.  I also don't think a "reality" couple should be on the list, Sonny and Cher were cool, but I was hoping this would have stayed a fictional list.  My last thought,  I wish Lee and Amanda from Scarecrow & Mrs. King would have made the list.  I love them.

So do you guys agree with the list?  Who would you add, who would you take off?

Matthew and Mary from Downton, no thanks, they do not sizzle.

And I never really felt Clark and Lois either

I don't watch enough TV to weigh in on this, but I do love Lucy and Ricky!

Bev Hankins said...

Desi Arnez & Luci--sexy? Based on their tv show? Seriously? And, I'm with you, I don't think Sonny and Cher belong on there.

And, as for soap opera stars....I didn't watch them, but all I heard about from high school on was about Bo and Hope on Days of Our Lives. I'm wondering why they aren't on there?

Bev Hankins said...

Ooops. Ricky & Lucy on the show.

My mom still reads TV guide! I like most of the couples on that list!

The whole Luke and Laura thing is weird. If I recall correctly, he raped her and then married her. Yeah... that's a hot couple.

I love Buffy & Angel and of course, Morticia and Gomez is one of the TOPS. They were NEVER afraid to show their love!

Clearly my idea of sexy is not the same as TV Guides. It almost seems like they've gone more with "best known as being a couple." Cuz, seriously, as much as I loved Dallas, JR and Sue Ellen were not sexy in my mind. And Darrin? Sexy? Not so much.

I can't believe that not noone has said Blake & Krystle from Dynasty?!

Best couple ever, with the best chemistry between them. At times a bit too much, yes, but my god the chemistry! :)

And J.R. & Sue Ellen? No, not in my book. They weren't even truly in love with eachother.
