6. Because Jane Lynch’s insults are brutally funny.

Primetime television is replete with funny women, many of whom are also quite easy on the eyes. There’s busty spitfire Sofia Vergara on Modern Family, naive sweetheart Alison Brie on Community, and 30 Rock’s librarian-sexy Tina Fey, yet the sharpest of them all is one who doesn’t need the benefits of pin-up looks. Glee’s Emmy winner Jane Lynch keeps the disses coming on a weekly basis. She’s the show’s spokeswoman for all those who hate on Glee’s feel-good crooners, firing off scathing one-liners with an impeccable matter-of-fact delivery.
