Posted on


Sheen_lAccording to TV Guide, Charlie Sheen is TV’s highest paid actor, taking home an estimated $825,000 an episode for his work on TV’s top sitcom, CBS’ Two and a Half Men. (That includes ownership in the show.) CSI star and exec producer William Petersen follows with $600,000 an episode. As for the women, Law & Order: SVU‘s Mariska Hargitay comes in first with a payday of $400,000, while The Closer‘s Kyra Sedgwick is runner-up with $275,000.

Are these the people you’d expect to see topping the list? And more importantly, how much do you think Men‘s Jon Cryer makes? We do love him.
