PostSubject: Top 10 earning males on TV   Wed Nov 11, 2009 6:05 pm

Quote :
Simon Cowell -- the acerbic "American Idol" judge, creator of "America's Got Talent" and record producer -- is the top-earning man on primetime U.S. television with an estimated haul of $75 million, Forbes.com said Tuesday.

Cowell beat out "The Apprentice" host Donald Trump ($50 million) and "American Idol" presenter Ryan Seacrest ($38 million), based on estimated pre-tax earnings from June 1, 2008-June 1, 2009.

Most of the top earners have several entertainment-related ventures, Forbes said. Cowell has his own record label, which has signed singers including Leona Lewis and Susan Boyle, in addition to his duties as a judge on "Idol" -- the most watched TV show in the United States for seven years.

Apart from "Apprentice," Trump lends his name to products ranging from neckties to vodka and reaps fees from speeches and books.

Seacrest, 34, has a Los Angeles morning radio show, is a celebrity TV host and developed the TV reality show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," as well as hosting "Idol."

Rounding up the top five are "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen ($21 million) and "The Office" actor Steve Carell ($20 million).

The remainder of the top 10:

6. Howie Mandel ($15 million)

7. Kiefer Sutherland ($13 million)

8. Jeff Foxworthy ($11 million)

9. Hugh Laurie ($10 million)

10. David Caruso ($9 million)
There's a few I'm wondering...who?

How / why Jeff Foxworthy gets so much is beyond me. Especially more than someone as brilliant as Hugh Laurie.

It really doesn't surprise me that Simon is number one on this list. He must be one of the most arrogant, big headed people ever.. but he is a genius, and he knows a hell of a lot about the music business.

I don't know half of the other people on this, but I was surprised to see that Hugh Laurie was a part of it.

Mandel gets paided that much for Deal or No Deal? Sutherland and Laurie need to demand a raise, if he can make that much for saying deal or no deal.

24 is great TV, House is also great TV and both shows would be screwed without their stars. Almost anyone could host Deal or No Deal.

I believe Mandel also has his own show (Howie Do It). Don't know if it got cancelled or not.

Oh yeah, his dumb ass prank show. I think that is only for summer filler time, when the A shows are on vacation.
