Jason Lewis (Sex and the City)


#45 Bobby Cannavale (Cupid)

Keep your eye out for Bobby Cannavale making love connections as Cupid this spring. We wouldn’t mind being pricked by his arrow.

Bobby Cannavale (Cupid)


#44 Brendan Hines (Lie To Me)

Age 32
Status: ?
He’s a snarky scientist on the new show Lie To Me, and in real life Brendan Hines heads up a rock band. Either way, we’re excited new fans of this scruffy hunk.

Brendan Hines (Lie To Me)


#43 Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)

Age 50
Status: Divorced
He just won a Golden Globe and a SAG award for his hilarious role as Jack on the hit sit-com 30 Rock, putting Alec Baldwin back on our sugar daddy radar.

Jeremy Sisto (Law & Order)


#38 Kal Penn (House)

Age 31
Status: ?
He’s that rare breed of hilarious, smart, and hot. Kal Penn not only double majored at UCLA in film and sociology, but he’s gone from frat-boy-funny Kumar to Dr. Lawrence Kutner on House with ease.

Kal Penn (House)


#37 Robert Buckley (Lipstick Jungle, Privileged)

Age 27
Status: ?
He’s hunky Kirby Atwood on Lipstick Jungle, and has a tendency to run around shirtless for the paparazzi. We are definitely not complaining.

#36 Christopher Egan (Kings)

Age 24
Status: Single
Keep your eyes out for this up and coming Australian actor. He’s soon to star on the NBC drama Kings, and it’s only a matter of time before the love letters start rolling in.

Joshua Jackson (Fringe)


#32 Idris Elba (The Wire, The Office)

#31 Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights)

Age 27
Status: Linked to model Amber Lancaster
There are so many football metaphors we could make about Zach Gilford, but we’ll spare you the innuendo and just say it straight up: the man’s a catch. (Oops!)

Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights)


#30 James Kyson Lee (Heroes)

Age 33
Status: ?
YES, that’s Ando! James Kyson Lee has held a special place in our hearts since he emerged as the lovable Ando on Heroes, but this goofy sidekick is also majorly sexy.

James Kyson Lee (Heroes)


#29 BJ Novak (The Office)

Age 29
Status: ?
This actor, writer, producer, and comedian is amazingly talented, funny, and (as Michael Scott reminds us all too often) “The Hottest in The Office”!

BJ Novak (The Office)


#28 Ryan Seacrest (American Idol)

Age 34
Status: ?
What would our pop culture life be like without Ryan Seacrest? We see him everywhere, from American Idol to E! News, so it’s a good thing he’s not bad to look at.

<a href="/actors/ryan-seacrest/" rel="dofollow noopener noreferrer" data-lazy-src="/btv_2_500320024_1_590_-1_0_/tv-s-50-most-eligibl.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal" target="_self"><noscript><img width=


#26 Derek Hough (Dancing With the Stars)

Age 23
Status: Single (as far as we know)
Derek is what in Hollywood we’d call a triple threat: he’s hot, he’s in a band, and he’s a champion ballroom dancer. It’s no wonder women across America tune in each week to watch him on Dancing With the Stars.

Derek Hough (Dancing With the Stars)


#25 Mark Ballas (Dancing With the Stars)

Age 22
Status: Single (as far as we know)
It’s no wonder that Ballas’s former dance partner Sabrina Bryan became his partner off-screen (until last May, that is). He’s hot, he’s in a band, and of course, he can dance! What’s not to love?

Mark Ballas (Dancing With the Stars)


#24 Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother)

Age 34
Status: Linked to actress Lindsay Price
Haaaave you met Ted? We love watching this hilarious HIMYM star as he looks for love on the small screen each week.

#23 Nathan Fillion (Castle)

Age 37

You may recognize Nathan Fillion from his roles in Firefly, Buffy, and as Captain Hammer in Joss Whedon’s crazy-successful online Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog last summer. Now this Whedon golden-boy is gracing our screens once more on Castle, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back!

If nerds were this hot in real life, we’d be hanging out at computer stores a lot more often.

Zachary Levi (Chuck)


#20 Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse)

Age 33
Status: ?
He’s now starring on the new series Dollhouse as FBI agent Paul Ballard, who becomes romantically obsessed with lead Echo (Eliza Dushku). And we’re not ashamed to say we’ve got a bit of a romantic obsession of our own…

<a href="/actors/tahmoh-penikett/" rel="dofollow noopener noreferrer" data-lazy-src="/btv_2_500320016_1_590_-1_0_/tv-s-50-most-eligibl.jpg" data-wpel-link="internal" target="_self"><noscript><img width=

Zach Braff (Scrubs)


#16 Shia LaBeouf

Age 22
Status: Single

Shia LaBeouf


#15 Adrian Grenier (Entourage)

Status: Single (as far as we know)
The eyes, the hair… okay, pretty much everything about Adrian Grenier is hot.

#14 The Jonas Brothers (JONAS)

Age 21 (Kevin), 19 (Joe), 16 (Nick)
Status: Kevin and Joe are in relationships. Nick is single.
These musical heartthrobs have a brand new Disney Channel sitcom coming up, and we can’t wait to watch their (mis)adventures. But then again, we’d watch them do anything…

The Jonas Brothers (JONAS)


#13 James Lafferty (One Tree Hill)

Age 23
Status: In a Relationship with co-star Sophia Bush
He plays hot basketball hopeful Nathan on OTH, and dates sexy co-star Sophia Bush in real life. James Lafferty is living the dream… and he’s very dreamy indeed.

James Lafferty (One Tree Hill)


#12 Wentworth Miller (Prison Break)

Age 36 Status: Single (as far as we know) The intensely private (and intensely hot) Wentworth Miller keeps his relationships under wraps. But until there’s a ring, we’ll assume that this smoldering star is still oh-so-eligible.

Wentworth Miller (Prison Break)


#11 Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl, Kings)

Age 25
Status: In a Relationship with Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester
Whether he’s bad boy Carter on Gossip Girl or troubled prince Jack on the upcoming NBC drama Kings, Sebastian Stan steals the screen with his boyish good looks and sneaky smile. We always knew Leighton had good taste.

We remember when he was AC Slater on Saved By The Bell, and Mario is still steamy as ever!

Mario Lopez (Americas Best Dance Crew)


#8 Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl)

Age 23
Status: Single
The only explanation for this man being single is that most women are intimidated by a man who’s prettier than them. But do we have a problem with Chace’s beauty? ‘Course not. We could gaze into those eyes all day long.

Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl)


#7 Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl)

Age 21

Age 27
Status: Single (as far as we know)

One look into the smoldering green eyes of Taylor Kitsch, and we’re done for.

Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights)


#5 John Krasinski (The Office)

Age 29
Status: Currently linked to Emily Blunt

The Office prankster just gets hotter as the seasons of everyone’s favorite corporate comedy go on. All we can say is: lucky Pam Beasley!

John Krasinski (The Office)


#4 Robert Pattinson (Twilight)

Age 22
Status: Single

So he’s more a movie than TV star, but we just couldn’t resist putting Rob on our list. He’s denied any relationship with co-star Kristen Stewart or buddy Camille Belle… which means this sexy bloodsucker is still up for grabs.

Robert Pattinson (Twilight)


#3 Jared Padalecki (Supernatural)

Age 26
Status: In a Relationship

Once again we flip-flop on which Winchester boy ranks above the other. You’re #3 today, but don’t worry, Jared, our Sexiest Man of 2008: you’re still a #1 in our hearts.

Jared Padalecki (Supernatural)


#2 Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes)

Age 31
Status: Single

Fresh from his break-up with fellow Heroes star Hayden Panettiere, Milo is single and just as sexy as he was when he was courting Rory on Gilmore Girls so long ago. We’d fly off with Peter Petrelli any day.

Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes)


#1 Jensen Ackles (Supernatural)

Age 31
Status: In A Relationship

There’s a reason our readers are crazy about Jensen Ackles. Actually, if you ask them, there are about a million reasons. He’s got more good looks and charm than he knows what to do with. Whoever puts a ring on this man will be a very lucky lady… but until that day comes, we know lots of die-hard Supernatural fans who will dream of being Mrs. Dean.What do you think of our list? Any sexy singles we left out? Sound off below!
