Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice)
His chiseled physique is hot enough, but the fact that Michael Westen kicks major ass makes Donovan even more drool-worthy.

Christina Hendricks (Mad Men)
It's been far too long since Joan Holloway's dangerous curves graced our TV screens. Thank God Esquire helped bide time.

Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood)
The Swedes are known to be a good-looking bunch, and Skarsgard is no exception. His Bon Temps sheriff Eric ought to satiate the hot vampire void left by Damon Salvatore over hiatus.

Jada Pinkett Smith (HawthoRNe)
Feisty and fiery, Pinkett Smith's Christina Hawthorne juggles a lot in and out of Richmond Trinity Hospital — and she always looks great doing it.

Jillian Michaels (Losing It with Jillian)
Just looking at her ripped bod out to be incentive enough to hit the gym this summer.
7 of 12 AMC
Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
Classic sexy returns as Don Draper heads up his own agency, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Nothing is hotter than a guy who takes charge.

Vanessa Minillo (True Beauty)
Yes, we know looks aren't everything, Vanessa, but we can see why you were crowned Miss Teen USA in 1998.

Jason Wiles (Persons Unknown)
We've missed the Third Watch babe's ginormous guns as well.

Padma Laksmi (Top Chef)
Lakshmi will surely redefine "hot mama" when Season 7 of the Bravo culinary series premieres.

Thomas Jane (Hung)
Male prostitution. 'Nuff said.
