ABC Television Network
In one of the first and funniest scenes of Season 1, Susan locks herself out of her house… while she’s bare naked. The scene proved the series could be as provocative as it was hilarious, and, from then on, we were desperate to come back to the ABC series. {Photo Credit: ABC}

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as being able to objectify the men of ‘Mad Men,’ if only for a few brief seconds at the end of Season 5. We’ll take this over a cliffhanger, thank you. {Photo Credit: AMC}

Okay, we’ll admit, the never-nude doesn’t quite fit on this list. But we had no choice since, boy, this Fünke is all anybody’s ever talking about. Plus, the image of Tobias in cut-offs always makes us blue ourselves. {Photo Credit: FOX}
