‘Two and a Half Men’s’ Charlie Sheen Tops the List of TV’s Richest Stars … Again

Aug 7, 2009  •  Post A Comment

According to TV Guide, CBS’ “Two and a Half Men” star Charlie Sheen collects $875,000 per episode, making him the richest actor on television.

Among women, ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” – Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria Parker and Teri Hatcher — all earn $400,000 per episode, which has them tied with the actors who supply the voices for Fox’s “The Simpsons” — Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith, Harry Shearer, Nancy Cartwright and Julie Kavner.

On cable, TNT’s “The Closer” star Kyra Sedgwick leads among women with $275,000 per show, just a bit more than the $250,000 Denis Leary gets for FX’s “Rescue Me.”
