What TV celebrities make

Pin It

TVGuide is releasing its annual summary of what actors and public figures on television make.

We use CBSalary.com as a salary range reference. But I think these salaries are far above and beyond any standard salary range!

Oprah Winfrey was at the top of the list, with an annual salary last year of $385 million. Simon Cowell from “American Idol” was next at $50 million, and late night talk show host David Letterman made $32 million.

You can see the overview of the TVGuide survey here.

  1. Funny how all these anti-capitalism celebrities make so much money. How about Jim Carey only making $100,000 a year? Instead he makes millions per movie, and gives away a fraction of his yearly salary for a tax deduction, he should put his money where his big mouth is and take less per year.

    Same with our CONgressional prostitutes who don’t vote themselves a raise but can vote against it. Yes, some of us know. Our CONgressional prostitutes hate, just hate the health care system in which lobbyists paid them.

    I am tired of hearing anti-capitalism from those that take and make so much from the rest. Capitalism is what gives us innovation, many of the high-tech items you currently enjoy. With regulation you get stagnation. The regulation we need is against a bigger government that imposes legislation that thwarts growth and gives them somewhere else to stick their greedy hands. When we talk of greed, let us not forget the greediest. Government.
