    This survey lists Howard as the highest paid reality show person, but has Judge Judy as the highest paid overall. None of the other AGT judges were in the top 5 in the reality category.

    Good thing Howard was able to cash in for a second year on AGT, as the dismal AGT ratings make it doubtful he'll be able to get that kind of dough from another program. Seems like the survey doesn't count Simon Cowell's earnings from owning shows, but just salaries paid to the stars.

    this can't be right. Both Ellen Pompeo and Sandra Oh from Grey's Anatomy each earn approximately $350,000-$400,000/episode.

    And at one point, Marg Helgenburger was getting something like $375,000/episode for CSI but that was a couple of years ago.

    And how the hell do Sharon Osbourne and Aisha Tyler earn more than Sara Gilbert? She's the executive producer of that shit show, The Talk? :scratch:

    I saw that report and is makes absolutely no sense to me. I have never had any desire to watch Judge Judy. I don't get it at all.

    I dont think its a complete list. I have a hard time believing 50K per episode is the 5th highest level.


    And Dinklage is still underpaid.

    One of the many crazy things I saw in Vegas a few weeks ago - a couple of old bitties sitting at a Judge Judy slot machine at the Luxor. :jj:

    People like her because she yells at stupid people. :jj:


    Yeah. No way that's a complete list. The article mentions how three of the stars of The Big Bang Theory are making more than $320,000/episode, but they weren't in the top 5. :facepalm:

    And Dinklage, while being seriously underpaid, obviously took the role for the accolades and future work that's going to come from it.
