Money Money Money Money!

August 12th, 2010

How are you making money this summer? Folding party-cardie’s at Old Navy? Packing boxes at Purolator? Mowing every lawn in your ‘hood?

Well your favourite celebs have been working just as hard on their sexy, brooding stares, their perfect hair, and picking the best clothes to show off their bodies.

TV Guide released its annual salary survey and can I just say…WOW. It’s amazing what some of these guys make per episode. Next year, I’m getting a summer job in Hollywood!

I scanned the list, and the majority of top earners were from adult dramas like House, Law & Order, CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, and a punch of other procedural dramas. But a few the actors from your favourite shows made the list (most of them way at the bottom of the list I might add) so here they are (pay per episode for 2010):

Ryan Seacrest (American Idol) — $15 million (*per year)
Dan Castellaneta/Julie Kavner (The Simpsons) — $400,000
Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) — $180,000
Betty White (Hot in Cleveland) — $75,000
Jane Lynch (Glee) — $50,000
Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries) — $40,000
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (Jersey Shore) — $30,000
Matthew Morrison (Glee) — $30,000
Selena Gomez (Wizards of Waverly Place) — $30,000
Cole Sprouse/Dylan Sprouse (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) — $20,000

Now that’s a lot of money – more than any part-time job let me tell you! But it’s a far cry from what some of the big stars of TV are making. These are the Top Ten spots for TV actors: (pay per episode for 2010)

Charlie Sheen (Two and a Half Men) — $1.25 million
Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men) — $550,000
Marcia Cross/Teri Hatcher/Felicity Huffman/Eva Longoria Parker (Desperate Housewives) — $400,000
Hugh Laurie (House) — $400,000
Mariska Hargitay/Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU) — $395,000
David Caruso (CSI: Miami) — $375,000
Marg Helgenberger (CSI) — $375,000
Mark Harmon (NCIS) — $375,000
Tina Fey (30 Rock) — $350,000
Jeremy Piven (Entourage) — $350,000
• **plus American Idol and The Simpsons from above**

Quite frankly, if I go to Hollywood and meet any of these guys, they have no excuse not to take me to an expense restaurant and pay the bill!
