Adult-theme shows, even though typically meant for adult viewers, are fast catching the fancy of the teens as well. With this rising viewership of adult-themed shows, a number of American and British channels are getting bolder and banking their Television Rating Points (TRP) on these.
Resultantly, a wide variety of these shows is now available all across the web. The past episodes of most of the shows, that leave you with bursts of laughter or cry or thrill, often, are available online.
To help you choose the best ones to watch, from that pool of adult-theme TV shows, a list of top 7 such shows have been included below. While most of these shows are aired past 8pm on the respective channels, in view of avoiding easy access to little ones, the restrictions seem to be losing meaning.
The teens are more matured and emotional now. But this comes with a rider. These adult- theme shows, as being often perceived by the youth, do not necessarily be restricted to bold sensual scenes or dialogues. The adult viewership has a lot to do with the maturity to view and accept the impact of the contents showed. These could also relate to emotional ties in adult relations, action packed sequences or stories revolving around the lives of adults specifically. It is presumed that non-adults are less likely to either take interest or understand the concepts of such shows. The trend, however, seems changing. Check out the best ones to pick across different channels:
