1. Emilia Clarke
As Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)

I see Daenerys as an extremely strong character. She learned how to deal with an arranged marriage with someone who was considered pretty much a barbarian, she was able to put her abusive older brother to his place, or, well, sort of, and she was merciful enough to try to make him a better person. However, he didn’t understand and ended up having the fate he deserved. I see in Daenerys someone who brought hope for the people who have chosen to follow her, and that’s why the Stormborn, from the blood of the dragon became my favorite female character in TV shows.

Average listal rating (341 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating
2. Emily Deschanel
As Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Bones)

I absolutely love Brennan’s lack of social skills. She doesn’t understand pop culture references and often sees that as something completely different from what’s being talked about, but, she’s amazing. She’s so incredibly smart that all that smartness makes her see life in a different way, generally preferring to benefit reason over emotion, and she’s able to rationalize anything; even one night stands can be explained as an act of reason and not emotion. That’s why I think she’s fabulous.

Average listal rating (438 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
3. Deborah Ann Woll
As Jessica Hamby (True Blood)

Sweet, sweet Jessica… I feel like for the past couple of seasons she’s been able to grow as a character, not to mention master her abilities in a way that her character became much, much more interesting. I don’t know why the show revolves around Sookie and Bill. To me they are the blandest characters of the story. If it were about Jessica and Eric, oh, now I see a difference that would make things better. So, anyways, why I like Jessica? Jessica has a heart of gold, and deep down, I think she’s still transitioning, like from being a teenager to being an adult; learning all the things that you can do before you actually go ahead and do them.

Average listal rating (593 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
4. Leighton Meester
As Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)

Let’s face it, Gossip Girl’s books were about Blair and the show couldn’t be any different. Blair was the whole show along with Chuck, if you take out those two, bam, you have absolutely nothing. She was a vengeful little schemer, but, that was her personality on the books as well, and seriously, not even then I could understand what Serena had of so appealing. Blair stole the show. She was smart, powerful, most girls wanted to be her, and despite her initially mean persona, she was always the one to go to whenever the guy she loved was in trouble.

Average listal rating (95 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
5. Kristin Bauer van Straten
As Pam de Beaufort (True Blood)

Pam just kicks ass! Sookie is so boring, and Tara is annoying, but Pam… Jeez, she can be a total b-itch, but she has a softer side that you can see when she’s with Eric or, well, her new progeny (bleh). She will do just about anything to keep Eric safe, and that includes sacrifice. Countless times she’s been tortured just to give out Eric’s whereabouts and she remained loyal to him the whole time. Even when he pushed her away she did everything in her power in order to show him she was worth it. So, yay to Pam!

Average listal rating (520 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
6. Courteney Cox
As Monica Geller (Friends)

Why is Monica my favorite Friends character? Well, I can really see a little bit of myself in her. I can get really competitive, I have OCD and if someone moves my things even in the slightest, I know they’ve been moved. Things out of place annoy me very much. So, yeah, because I can see some of myself in her, I think I just grew to like her so much and laugh at her and all those things.

Average listal rating (19 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
7. Tichina Arnold
As Rochelle (Everybody Hates Chris)

Tichina playing Chris’s mother is just hilarious. The whole show is great, but I think whenever there’s something about her it’s just awesome. Her obsession with the chocolate turtles and when they’re taken away she starts drinking caramel syrup or something like that, the way how she can make a grown man cry, like she did with Mr. Omar in an episode he’s supposed to take care of Chris, how street-smart she is, knowing the catch in games, sewing side pockets in order not to lose the family’s money… There’s just so much to her…

Average listal rating (184 ratings) 6.2  IMDB Rating
8. Kristin Davis
As Charlotte York (Sex and the City)

The sweet and modest woman along with her inquest friends. Seriously, to me Charlotte was the most interesting one of the four. It sucked when she got stuck in a loveless marriage, and I really hoped she would get to have her fairytale after all, but it was hard for her to actually get there. Every time it seemed like everything worked against her, not being able to get pregnant, being stuck with a man who she ended up not loving… I felt for her. But, she was an intelligent woman, maybe lacking a little bit on the personality department. I guess her biggest thing was being able to not like sign the prenuptial agreement on the terms set by her former mother-in-law…

Average listal rating (205 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
9. Julia Louis-Dreyfus
As Old Christine (The New Adventures of Old Christine)

Old Christine made me laugh, a lot! She’s dependent, forgetful, dysfunctional. She makes her own self seem much older than she really is. Her relationship with her brother, Matthew, is, at the very least, disturbing. She’s always trying to prove she’s better than people think she is and constantly failing at that, I guess that’s what makes it so funny. Plus, I love the cabinet she keeps under the staircase of gifts she received but didn’t like so she can give them to someone else whenever there’s an occasion.

Average listal rating (91 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
10. Meghan Ory
As Ruby/Red Riding Hood (Once Upon a Time)

Forget about Mary Margaret/Snow White and Emma, Ruby is, by far, the most interesting female character in OUAT. She’s lovely, but she has a wild side. Meaning there’s both good and evil inside of her and, seriously, I’d wish the show would give her more of a spotlight, because I think her character totally deserves it. I wish to see more of the wolf side of her, and even though she fears it’ll take over her, I think it could give the story an interesting twist. So, yeah, I like bold, lovely Ruby over any other woman character in that show.

Average listal rating (77 ratings) 5.1  IMDB Rating
11. Conchata Ferrell
As Berta (Two and a Half Men)

Berta is the perfect housekeeper! … NOT! Still, I love her “catch” phrases like: “I ain’t cleaning that up.” or when the bell rings and she tells someone else to get it. She insists on doing absolutely nothing for Alan, despite the fact he’s sort of her boss, and she gets away with it. Charlie completely depended on her. I think she’s funny and the characters know her very well for being a very strong woman.


 

Under Construction.

So far, I could think of about 48 female characters from shows I watch/have watched. But I've only written about a few of them, so, I'll be adding them as I write. Be patient.
