America churns out hundreds of TV shows every year, out of which many disappear into oblivion. However there are a few that stay with us years after their release. This article will talk about the best adult tv shows ever. Here adult basically means those shows which have been given a TV-MA rating due to depictions of graphic violence, nudity, profanity or any other frightening or disturbing content which could be too much to take for younger viewers. Here’s the list of top adult (TV-MA) rated TV shows. You can watch some of these adult series on Hulu or Amazon Prime.
16. Sex and The City (1998-2004)
More of an awareness campaign relating to the social (sex-related) issues of today, ‘Sex and the City’ managed to top the charts as well as the viewership when it was on the air. Perhaps the most popular and the raunchiest of the lot, this show re-defined sex in American TV shows and set new benchmarks before any of it was cool. The show follows the lives of four American women – Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, all in their mid-30s to early 40’s, who’ve managed to stick together through every thick and thin, despite the changes in their sex lives, physiologies, relationships and promiscuity. The sexual depictions are spread out through the entire series with scenes of masturbation, frontal nudity and simulated sex. I guess that information was more than enough to get started.

15. Shameless (2011-Present)
A television show (perhaps the only one on this list) which boasts of something it actually is in many of its forms, ‘Shameless’ has also won an equal amount of critical acclaim and accolades for being “original, compelling, and entertaining” throughout. Primarily with an audience among the adult populace, given its TV-MA rating, ‘Shameless’ boasts of an ensemble cast and a very unique storyline, with a run of eight seasons and counting. The premise is that of a dysfunctional family with a drunkard father who has no idea what’s going on, while the eldest of his children take care of the family of herself and her five siblings, where many of them are born out of affairs. Because of the graphic nudity and sex that has been depicted throughout, mostly in all of the episodes, ‘Shameless’ has to be one of the hottest television shows out there. I know some of us are eagerly waiting for the next season to arrive, well apparently, the wait is over.
