The Greatest Perpetually Single Women On TV

Samantha Jones – Sex and the City

Samantha Jones

It wouldn’t be a list of the greatest single TV women without mentioning the formidable Samantha Jones, would it? Sure, Carrie had our hearts on Sex and the City, but Samantha was our true favorite. Why? She completely flipped the script on how we expected female characters to act in TV shows. Samantha went after men to satisfy her own carnal urges in a way that was sexy, compelling and best of all – she took the shame out of casual sex. Why should a girl wait for Mr. Right when she could have Mr. Right Now if she wanted? Samantha would eventually settle down for a few years with Smith, but the pair broke up toward the end of the series.
