Fall TV is back in full swing, and it's full of hotties.

Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert on <em>Vampire Diaries</em>-

As much as we're getting sick and tired of vampires (we get it - you're pale and you're into Emo and you make Morrissey look like Randy Couture), we have to admire their ability to attract some amazing women to their boring and cliched stories. Nina has us layering on the white powder make-up in the hopes we'll get a crack at latching onto that neck...

Check out Vampire Diaries on the CW Thursdays at 8/7 central.

Leighton Meester as "Blair Waldorf" on <em>Gossip Girl</em>-

If you've ever been tricked by your girlfriend into watching Gossip Girl, then you appreciate at least having the tightly-wound preppy hotness of Leighton Meester's Blair Waldorf to ogle. Meester (Spanish for "mister") almost makes the teen soap opera watchable. Almost.

Check out more of Leighton's photos.

Catch Gossip Girl on the CW Mondays at 9/8 Central.

Laura Vandervoort as Lisa on <em>V</em>-

Laura definitely knows a thing or two about sexy aliens. Before she seduces humanity into siding with her reptilian brethren on the upcoming remake of V, Laura crash landed on Earth (and into our fantasies) as Superman's cousin, um, Supergirl on Smallville. Take us to your leader.

See more of Laura in her Girls of Maxim gallery.

Check out the series premiere of V on Tuesday, November 3rd at 8/7 central.

Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan on <em>Bones</em>-

It's kind of unfair that the Deschanel gene pool can produce the wide-eyed cuteness of Zooey and the piercing hotness of Emily. Now we're just going to resist making cheap Bones jokes. Why don't you play along? "Handles," "Emily," "Bones." Do with those what you will.

Check out more photos of Emily Deschanel.

Watch Bones on Fox Thursday at 8/7 central.

Jaime Ray Newman as Kat Rougemont on <em>Eastwick</em>-

Now this is one sexy witch. The ginger-maned Jaime Ray will be consorting with the Devil on Eastwick, while we find something to do with our idle hands. Seeing as she'll be sharing a lot of screen time with Lindsay Price and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos-O'Connell, we'll definitely be tuning in.

Check out Eastwick on ABC Wednesdays at 10/9 central.

Jessica Lucas as Riley Richmond on <em>Melrose Place</em>-

To be honest, we weren't 100% convinced that we had to check back in to Melrose Place, but then we caught a glimpse of knee-weakening Canadian import Jessica Lucas. If the Great White North keeps producing women like this, we may have to take back some of the things we've been saying about them.

Watch Melrose Place on the CW Tuesdays at 9/8 central.

Kristen Bell as the voice of Gossip Girl on <em>Gossip Girl</em>-

Although you may be tempted to watch Gossip Girl with the sound off, doing so will deprive you of the breathy voice of the adorable Bell. As the "heard but never seen" voice of the Gossip Girl blog, she narrates the comings and goings and comings again of New York's elite. XOXO, indeed.

Check out Kristen's Girls of Maxim gallery.

Catch Gossip Girl on the CW Mondays at 9/8 Central.

Daniela Ruah as Special Agent Kensi Blye on <em>NCIS: LA</em>-

Surviving the onslaught of initials that is NCIS: LA, Daniela makes fighting crime sexy again (apologies to Steven Seagal). Daniela is slated to pop up next in George Lucas' non-Star Wars movie Red Tails. We said "non-Star Wars," so put away that metal bikini.

Check out NCIS: LA on CBS Tuesdays at 9/8 central.

Courteney Cox as Jules Cobb on <em>Cougar Town</em>-

Despite her dubious taste in men (David Arquette? Really?), Cox makes Cougar Town (fun fact: pronounced "Cougarton") a must-see travel destination this fall. Hey, it beats MILF Island any day of the week.

Check out more of Courteney's photos.

Watch Cougar Town on ABC Wednesdays at 9:30/8:30 central.

Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen on <em>Gossip Girl</em>-

What can we say? We'd never admit to watching Gossip Girl, but this show makes itself almost impossible to ignore. The Betty to Leighton Meester's Veronica, Blake Lively is all sorts of trouble crammed into the most jaw-slackening package on TV.

See more photos of Blake Lively.

Catch Gossip Girl on the CW Mondays at 9/8 Central.

AnnaLynne McCord as Naomi Clark on <em>90210</em>-

Remember when 90210 was populated by dumpy 30 year-olds posing as high school kids? Yeah, things have changed. AnnaLynne leads the new charge, and we are growing our sideburns out and pompadour-ing our hair in anticipation of her poolside hijinks. To the Peach Pit!

Check out AnnaLynne's gallery on Maxim.com.

Watch 90210 Tuesday's at 8/7 central.

Ali Larter as Niki Sanders on <em>Heroes</em>-

She's been a bad, bad girl...No one makes us more willingly embrace danger than Ali. On Heroes, she has all sort of super powers which, if you ask us, is pure overkill. With her athletic build and killer smile, she's our own personal kryptonite. OK, OK, you win, Ali. We yield. Now tie us up.

Check out Ali Larter's Girls of Maxim gallery.

Watch Heroes on NBC Mondays at 8/7 central.

Alana De La Garza as Connie Rubirosa on <em>Law and Order</em>-

Law and Order, how do you expect us to start ignoring you when you keep front-loading your show with women like Alana? We're all set to be, "been there, done that," and then you have us tuning in anyway, just to see see how thoroughly De La Garza will cross-examine. That's right...badger that witness. Oh yeah...

See Alana's Girls of Maxim gallery.

Watch Law and Order Fridays at 8/7 central.

Dichen Lachman as Sierra on <em>Dollhouse</em>-

Despite a name that sounds like a Teutonic hobgoblin, Dichen Lachman will not creep into your cabin and steal your kinder on the first full moon after the Volkstrauertag festival. Instead, she'll be keeping your eyes glued to every twist and turn Dollhouse springs on you.

Watch Dollhouse on Fox Fridays at 9/8 central.

Eliza Dushku as Echo on <em>Dollhouse</em>-

If there is ever a Lifetime Achievement Award for ass-kicking hotness, then Eliza would be the first woman clearing shelf space. From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Bring it On to Dollhouse, Dushku has made a career out of pouring herself into clothing tight enough to cut off her circulation and sassing anyone who has a problem with it.

Check out Eliza's Girls of Maxim photo gallery.

Watch Dollhouse on Fox Fridays at 9/8 central.

Elizabeth Mitchell as Erica Evans on <em>V</em>-

Hands down the hottest "Other" on Lost, Elizabeth Mitchell will soon be staring down an alien invasion on V. That's all well and good, but we'll always remember her prancing around naked with Angelina Jolie in the cable movie Gia. Why? Um, have you forgotten what site you're on?

Check out the series premiere of V on Tuesday, November 3rd at 8/7 central.

Lindsay Price as Joanna Frankel on <em>Eastwick</em>-

Look, some things just work for certain women better than others. In the case of Lindsay Price, the "naughty librarian thing" is her Triple Lindy. She rocks it like no other, and we are left in awed disbelief every time. Oh, Eastwick, your allure is too strong to resist.

See Lindsay's cover shoot video.

Check out Eastwick on ABC Wednesdays at 10/9 central.

Michelle Borth as Candace Butler in <em>The forgotten</em>-

Naming your show The Forgotten may seem like catnip for critics, but casting women like Michelle Borth is a sure way to keep yourself on the air no matter what they think.  You may also remember the lovely Michelle from the HBO series Tell Me You Love Me, also known as Have Really Explicit Sex for an Hour Without Technically Being Porn.

Watch the forgotton on ABC Tuesdays at 10/9 central.

Monica Raymund as Ria Torres in <em>Lie to Me</em>-

Why is the sultry Monica a perfect fit for Lie to Me? Just imagine how many lies this hottie has had to wade through in her life: "I don't have a girlfriend." "I drive a Ferrari." "Of course I'm employed." "That's just a rash." Exhausting...

Watch Lie to Me on Fox Mondays at 9/8 central.

Morena Baccarin as Anna on <em>V</em>-

Let's face it, it's easy to root against alien invaders when they have giant pulsating brains or tentacles or glowing fingers that heal cuts. But when they look like Morena, we're ready to lay down and let the probing begin. As the alien leader on V, the exotic Baccarin is a world-conqueror to end all world-conquerors.


Check out the series premiere of V on Tuesday, November 3rd at 8/7 central.

Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett on <em>Castle</em>-

It may seem out of character for us, but sometimes you need more than just a pretty face. Stana is undeniably smoking, but it's her acid tongue and no-nonsense attitude that has us hoping for a frisk-down. Any wonder why Nathan Fillion struts around every episode of Castle with a shit-eating "I'm the luckiest guy alive" smirk?

Watch Castle Mondays on ABC at 10/9 central.

Rebecca Romijn as Roxie on <em>Eastwick</em>-

Rebecca Romijn has been a hottie icon (a "hotcon"? Can we coin that? Did we just coin that?) for so long, it's almost unfair to everyone else here. With or without vestigial last names, Romijn is a blonde beacon of all-American sex appeal. Have we mentioned how we're going to be watching the ass off of Eastwick?

See more of Rebecca Romijn in her Girls of Maxim gallery.

Check out Eastwick on ABC Wednesdays at 10/9 central.

Katie Cassidy as Ella Simms on <em>Melrose Place</em>-

Yes, the stunning Ms. Cassidy is the daughter of 70s hair model David Cassidy, but if she keeps strutting her stuff like she does on the new Melrose Place, she'll carve out her own niche in no time. In fact, we're starting a fan club right now...

See Katie Cassidy's Girls of Maxim gallery.

Watch Melrose Place on the CW Tuesdays at 9/8 central.

Rashida Jones as Ann Perkins on <em>Parks and Recreation</em>-

Without question, the best thing Quincy Jones has ever produced. Rashida is another one of those anomalies that totally disproves the "hot girls can't be funny" notion. From I Love You, Man to Parks and Recreation, she has us really laughing - not, you know, laughing in that "I'm only laughing because you're hot" way.

Check out more pictures of Rashida Jones on Maxim.com.

Watch Parks and Recreation on NBC Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30 central.

Olivia Wilde as Dr. Hadley on <em>House</em>-

Sardonic wit. Elegant prose. A flamboyant lifestyle. What more can be said? The work alone speaks for itself. Wilde's career is still celebrated to this day,  the groundbreaking work influencing and inspiring writers, poets, playwrights, and filmmakers. This Irish...wait, what? Oh, Olivia Wilde. Crap. Um...well, that's an easy fix. Just replace everything above with "So Hot She Impairs Our Ability to Form Words." That should do it.

Check out more pictures Maxim's #1 on the 2009 Hot 100 list.

Watch House on Fox Mondays at 8/7 central.
