Forbes List of the Year's Richest TV Actors Owes a Great Debt to CBS, Mediocrity

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | October 15, 2013 | Comments ()


Forbes announced their list of the ten highest paid television actors of the year and it’s kind of what you’d expect: Most of these guys owe their fortunes to CBS and syndication royalties (in fact, seven of the ten earn most of their income from CBS shows, including Ray Romano, who is now on Parenthood, but receives the majority of his income from Everybody Loves Raymond reruns).

Of the other three, Tim Allen reaps most of his income from Home Improvement royalties (although, he does have an ABC show on Fridays now that 90 out of 100 people couldn’t name), Dempsey makes a killing on Grey’s Anatomy, while Michael C. Hall shows why he agreed to sign on for a terrible eighth season of Dexter. With $10 million, Hall can pay for a lot of lumberjack shirts.


1. Ashton Kutcher — $24 million

2. Jon Cryer — $21 million

3. Ray Romano — $16 million

4. Neil Patrick Harris — $15 million

5. Mark Harmon — $15 million

6. Patrick Dempsey — $13 million

7. Tim Allen — $11 million

8. Angus T. Jones — $11 million

9. Michael C. Hall — $10 million

10. Charlie Sheen — $10 million

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
