There’s no doubt that one of the hottest basic cable lineups belongs to FX. The channel as a whole is home to some of the boldest shows, and in its 20th year, it still takes major risks. The network has been rewarded with plenty of fans — who come back season after season, show after show, to not only see great scripted dramas and hilarious comedies but also some of the sexiest men on TV. There’s a reason Sons of Anarchy is such a major success: Charlie Hunnam. (Why else would he have originally landed the role of Christian Grey in film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey?) And then there are all the men in Ryan Murphy‘s rotating cast of American Horror Story. Joining Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters this season are Finn Wittrock (The Normal Heart) and Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games). And you can’t forget about Timothy Olyphant on Justified. Yum!
Thanks to a number of large casts, we had the tough duty of ranking FX’s sexiest leading men. Among them are the scruffy Adam Rayner of Tyrant, Corey Stoll of The Strain, and Matthew Rhys of The Americans.
While we should be jealous of the fact that Keri Russell gets to work alongside Rhys, we have to admit we are just as jealous of him. He and the rest of the cast get to have fun trying on Russell’s wig from her Felicity days. (And we’re fairly certain that’s not a sexy look on any man.) Of course, if you’re not a FX person, you may like Showtime.

Shocking an audience is a difficult thing to do these days, so constantly titillated are our imaginations. But with so many series reinventing the traditional format, losing a main character is often a surefire way to leave audiences with mouths agape. Most recently, The Good Wife saw leading character Will Gardner (Josh Charles) die, and Homeland lost one of its main driving forces, maybe-terrorist Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis). While these unexpected character deaths rattled audiences, it’s yet to be seen how their respective shows will carry on without them.
In anticipation of the return of fall TV, we’re taking a look back at iconic shows that lost a main character and soldiered on (for better or for worse). Whether an unexpected death, like Ned Stark on Game of Thrones, or an actor simply leaving a show before it was over, like Steve Carell leaving The Office, all of these series saw a dearly beloved character disappear too soon. Some thrived under the circumstances, while others fell flat. Click through our gallery to see how some of your favorite TV shows did after losing a main character, and tell us your thoughts in the comments section. Spoilers ahead.
Game of Thrones has said goodbye to numerous characters over its four seasons. Watch Pedro Pascal (aka the Red Viper) describe how the cast deals with all that death.

We love The Mindy Project for several reasons. Dr. Mindy Lahiri (the madcap, romcom-loving OBGYN played by writer/producer Mindy Kaling) and her sparkly girly-girl personality is one of the most winning on network TV. Her “will they or won’t they” romance with Dr. Castellano is adorable. And then there’s her wardrobe.
Her wardrobe! She wafts through her office, subways, and her improbably huge Manhattan apartment (fine, she pulls in a doctor’s salary, but still) in an explosion of bright solids, power prints, and sweater vests — lots of sweater vest. She dresses like a Crayola crayon crossed with a dalmatian, and it all works. In anticipation of tonight’s season three premiere, let’s take a look back at Dr. Lahiri’s most fab looks on The Mindy Project.

Miley Cyrus wants everyone to know she’s keeping up with her hygiene. After wearing nipple pasties to New York Fashion Week, the singer is inviting us into her shower in Puerto Rico via a scandalous Instagram photo and well-placed heart emoji.
Meanwhile, Drake is adding yet another role to his resume. In addition to playing wheelchair Jimmy on Degrassi and hosting the 2014 ESPY Awards, he’s now enrolled in Hogwarts to scheme on Hermione. Leave it to Drake to post a corny Photoshop creation to Instagram and make it go viral. But seriously, this photo is gold.
Here’s more of what you missed on Instagram this weekend: Ashley Tisdale headed to paradise for her honeymoon, Kylie Jenner always knew she was a thug (and has the picture to prove it), and Demi Lovato shared an intimate photo with boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama. See more essential photos from the ‘gram in the gallery above.
Think Demi is being too gushy on social media? Guess what: She really doesn’t care. She will, however, talk about that time her selfie with Bill Clinton became an issue for the Secret Service. Find out why, below.
