TV Guide’s Top Television Earners 2010
TV Guide Magazine has revealed the salaries for some of our favorite small screen stars.
How much do the stars of Glee make in a week and what does House’s paycheck look like?
Betcha didn’t know that Jersey Shore pickle-eatin’ Princess of Poughkeepsie — Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — might not have an Emmy nomination like Glee’s Matthew Morrison, but she’s reportedly pulling in just as much cash per episode. Tattling tipsters tell TV Guide that both Snooki and Matt pocket $30,000 per episode. For that kind of dough, hitting the tanning booth while being hit on by The Situation doesn’t sound half bad.
Other notable high earners on the list include Hugh Laurie, who reportedly pockets at least $400,000 for each episode of House.
And the highest-paid television star of them all? Volatile bad boy Charlie Sheen, who reportedly takes in a staggering $1.25 million for each episode of Two and a Half Men.
