You know, we're in a recession. Folks just got to cut back.

Unless you're Charlie Sheen, in which case you can wipe your ass with money and still be able to pay the cable bill.

A list of the highest earning players on T.V. was released today and as you can imagine, most of these people make more in an hour of television than some people do in a year!

For instance, did you know that Mr. Sheen makes $1.25 million per episode of Two and A Half Men? Doesn't that make you just want to cut him on Christmas morning?

Did you know that Kate Gosselin makes $250,000 per episode of Kate Plus Eight. You can argue that sextuplets can't feed themselves, but in this case, we think your wrong. If she is making that kind of bank, imagine what the kids are getting?

Did you know that if you add together what Ellen DeGeneres, Jay Leno, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Judge Judy make in a year that still isn't half of what Oprah Winfrey takes home?

How much exactly does she make? Brace yourself - $315 million a year!

That is INSANITY!

There are tons more actors who make tons more money, but we think we'll spare you the rest. You probably feel poor enough!

    She makes all that because she owns her show.
    If those other celebs owned their show they would be making a lot more too

    THE BIG O

    LOL isnt it ironic that oprah is pro black rights etc…. And her faily is of slavary days yet she makes more money than all the white people in the state of Texas? Haha just realized shes soo damn rich its kinda funny but scary at the same time. See folks this is what happens when a all white new station fires a black woman in 1984. She starts her own shit and owns it and makes more money than anyone else. Noral of the story, anything can happen if you work hard. Hey Oprah i have to poay my rent can i borrow a few hundred bucks?

    One more time, it's ridiculous, pathetic and frustrating how our society worships greed and how you fuel that on your website. The firefighter who will give his live in order to save mine if my house burns doesn't even make 6 figures! No wonder people are so miserable.

    Kate Gosselin makes that much an episode and she demands Child Support and Alimony from Jon? Thats SICK. I wish she would just go away

    Oprah sucks. She is one of the biggest racists I have ever seen. Her show has always sucked big rubbery ones.

    Well don't worry about Opah's money, nobody here will see a penny of it. ANd quite frankly since she earned it if she wanted to burn it she could. Let's face it nobody here will ever be smart enough to make that kind of money in our lifetimes. She's a big fat whale with Billions of dollars, how much is in you bank account? Go Oprah!!

    DANG OPRAH,I'M POOR,BLACK AND UGLY! CAN I GET A MILLION? not kidding,I CAN KEEP A SECERT.

    She works hard and wise enough to invest it unlike her other colleagues who spend their money for different luxurious things. Oprah shares it too that´s why she is blessed. And compare to her colleagues, she is the most trustworthy among all of them, that´s why a lot of companies want to work with her.

    can buy alot of whoppers with that



  13. 13

    dang, girl!



  14. 14

    No wonder there are so many poor people.



  15. 15

    Oprah is Obnoxiously rich lol Imagine her bills, more money more problems.



  16. 16

    oprah is a bitch. period.



  17. 17

    Hey Oprah, help a country out and kick some of that to our gigantic national debt! She campaigned for the guy…



  18. 18

    Love and respect Oprah, but she shouldn't waste so much money on a skirt that looks so cheap!



  19. 19

    Kate Gosselin makes HOW MUCH FUCKIN' MONEY??????

    That is CRIMINAL! I hate that bitch and she doesn't deserve A DIME!!! There is no justice.



  20. 20

    Kate Gosselin and her horrible, selfish, shrew-like personality is now a LIABILITY to TLC. They must know this (viewership is way down - does anyone what this program?). TLC, time to drop the shrew-faced Kate.



  21. 21

    Oprah created an EMPIRE.She is far more than a talk show host. She is also a risk taker and hiring Rosie O'Donnell is a very big RISK. Which Rosie will perform?? It is scary to guess.



  22. 22

    oprah is lucky.
    thats why she is rich.
    she was nothing.
    and remained nothing for a long time.

    then she got a cheap chance.

    she was a female jerry springer.

    back in the day.

    she got lucky by some guy telling her she should move to real stories.

    fuck her she would be nothing without her talkshow that was horrible

    It's weird to see such amounts of money earned by one person. Do you realize that there actually are entire nations in this world who have less budget in a year than she earns just for herself? I'm not saying she's bad at what she's doing or anything of that kind, because she's not. But no one deserves that much money for just themselves, including Oprah. It's just not fair. It shows the greatest downside of capitalism. Imagine what could be done with this money elsewhere! Whole populations could be saved and given a chance to get on their feet. :-/

    First of all, props to Kate Gosslin for even maintaining a morsel of sanity as a single mom with 8 kids. She is so lucky to have those funds coming in from the show! Second of all it costs an estimated $88,000/per year to raise 8 kids. Anyone with a normal salary [IE: if she worked as a nurse} would never be able to meet their needs financially. And do you really think the show is going to last a lifetime?? No, so she better be smart with that money so her future can be as financially secure as her present.

    AND Oprah is such a trailblazing mamma minx.

    Lets hope they're paying their TAXES!! The government should make bank off of incomes like that.

    How much does Mr Perez Hilton make? Maybe he could share his riches with his loyal followers ;)

    There are so many people that I would be able to help out with this type of money. Hey people don't forget down south, they need our help!!!
