Question of the Day
Lady O in the money
Talk might be cheap, but Oprah is not.
Topping a list of the highest-paid television stars in the U.S. is Oprah Winfrey, host and supervising producer of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” who earns an estimated $260 million a year, notes the Hollywood Reporter, citing a list in TV Guide’s July 23 issue.
Music producer Simon Cowell, the blunt and often contentious British judge of “American Idol,” placed a distant second to Winfrey, with $45 million for his role on Fox’s smash hit talent show and other projects.
The following partial list breaks down star salaries by category — prime time TV, daytime, cable and news:
Top five (salaries per year)
Simon Cowell (“American Idol”): $45 million
Judge Sheindlin (“Judge Judy”): $30 million
Zach Braff (“Scrubs”): $6.3 million
Network prime time (salaries per episode)
William Petersen (“CSI”): $500,000
Charlie Sheen (“Two and a Half Men”): $350,000
