There has been one, and only one, reason that the death of the traditional, multi-camera sitcom has been unfortunate. This: Back in the day, when family-centered sitcoms seemed to dominate the airwaves, we were blessed with scores of hot, cute, or hot-cute sitcom daughters. They’re still out there, of course, mostly in different formats. But it’s not the same, really. When you’re 16, there was nothing better than that very special episode where the hot-cute TV daughter was trying decide whether to give it up or not. And they never did. And that made them even more endearing. But, the Carol Seavers, the D.J. Tanners, Barbara Coopers and the Jamie Powells of this world just don’t exist anymore. But Hot TV daughters do live on. They’re just not as chaste.

Here are the all-time greats:

10. Jamie Powell (Nicole Eggert) — “Charles in Charge”


9. Kim Bauer (Elisha Cuthbert) — “24”


8. Lynn Tanner (Andrea Elson) — “Alf”


7. Rori Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) — “Gilmore Girls”


6. Sarah Henrickson (Amanda Seyfried) — “Big Love”


5. Claire Fisher (Lauren Ambrose) — “Six Feet Under”


4. Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) — “Veronica Mars”


3. Denise Huxtable (Lisa Bonet) — “The Cosby Show”


2. Kelly Bundy (Christina Applegate) — “Married .. with Children”


1. Samantha Micelli (Alyssa Milano) — “Who’s the Boss?”
