Archie Panjabi as Kalinda and Julianna Margulies as Alicia on The Good Wife(CBS)

On top of the women-centric "Desperate Housewives," "Gossip Girl" and ninety per cent of reality TV, there's also a host of new shows with female heavy casts. Unfortunately, guys tend to blow these shows off as "chick shows" and feel justified in never tuning in. Sometimes, they're right (see: "Sex and the City" or "Grey's Anatomy") but there's also a chance they're very very wrong (see: "The Good Wife"). With this in mind, here's a list of ten "girly" shows that we recommend dudes keep an open mind about. Male or female, you may find your new favourite show on this list.
