at .  Updated at .

May Sweeps is over, pools are opening, grills are firing up, and beach trips are being planned. It's Sexy Saturday here at TV Fanatic and we're set for summer with these sexy TV characters who are sporting their swimwear.

As the temperatures continue to rise, what better way to cool off than slipping on your favorite swimsuit and hitting the water? That's what these TV characters chose to do! Some are hitting the waves with their surfboards, some prefer the pool to the ocean, and others prefer to stay dry and are satisfied just soaking up the sun.

Regardless of your preference, check out our slideshow of sexy men and women donning swimwear and then head outside to enjoy the surf, sun, and sand for yourselves!
