The 20 Highest Paid Actresses on TV

69th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Arrivals

We’ve done a male version of this list so naturally it’s time for the females.  Which actresses are the highest paid on the small screen right now? This list aims to find out. This takes into account total earnings from the year, so it can include current payment for shows, rerun syndication payment, advertising revenue or outside income (such as restaurant ownership or money generated from a fashion line). So if you’re confused about who is where, that might explain it.

It is sad though, that overall this list has lower numbers on it than the male one. Hollywood needs make things even for once.  You’ll also notice that there’s a few reality stars on this list.  The truth is that payment for reality TV “stars” is going up.  Especially for the ones who have created an empire around their “brand”.

Anyway, on with the list…
