FBLA gets TV Guide’s press release emails and we usually ignore them. But today, Julie Farin presented us with some truly fabulous information: salaries of the small-screen stars.
Oprah: $260 million per year (includes income from Rachael Ray, Dr. Phil, and other programs)
Simon Cowell: $45 million per year (for American Idol and other projects)
Judge Judy: $30 million per year
Katie Couric: $15 million per year
Zach Braff: $6.3 million (for 18 episodes of Scrubs next season)
Think about that for a momemnt: Braff gets nearly half of what Couric makes, and she has to show up every day.
