Who are the Ten Hottest Daddies of All Time to Grace the Small Screen?

Let's face it... we love a daddy.  At some point in many of our lives, there was a "father" type on a television show that not only helped question your sexuality, but also for your particular love of men over 40 with a good amount of chest hair and chiseled facial features. 

So, why not celebrate that?  From Christopher Meloni to Tom Selleck, and some new additions as of late, we count down who we think are the ten hottest daddies to ever grace the small screen.  

Let us know what you think of our picks!
