TV Guide has released a list of the highest paid TV stars, you know, to make us all very jealous!
And, among the top of the list is Charlie Sheen for his show, Two and a Half Men.
Sheen is the highest paid comedy star in prime-time.
And with him owning a part of the series, it brings his salary to around $825,000…..per episode!!!!!!
Sitcoms typically film around 22 episodes per season. So Charlies walking away with almost $20 mill every year!!!!!
Too bad he has to give away so much of that to his money hungry ex-wife, Denise Richards.
The highest paid actress in a prime-time drama goes to Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order: SVU. She's earning about $400,000 per episode.
William Petersen from CSI is the highest paid actor in a prime-time drama earning around $600,000 per episode.
And cable stars are making good money as well.
Kyra Sedgwick from TNT's The Closer is the highest-paid actress in a cable network drama. She makes about $275,000 per episode.
Even those behind the scenes are making money like crazy. Seth MacFarlane, who created Family Guy, is now the highest paid prime-time writer and producer. His new deal with 20th Century Fox will pay $100 million.
Looks like there's still money in acting.
Well, only if you make it big!
