Ashton Kutcher is the answer. The “Two and a Half Men” star was the best paid actor on US TV for the second year running, having earned an estimated $24 million for the CBS series. So what is it about Kutcher that makes him the most valuable above the rest (most who have worked in TV much longer than him)? The question remains unanswered.
Kutcher replaced Charlie Sheen on both the show and on the Forbes TV earnings list. His co-star Jon Cryer jumped from seventh to second place, earning $21million. Who follows next?
Ray Romano, $16m
Neil Patrick Harris, $15m
Mark Harmon, $15m
Patrick Dempsey, $13m
Tim Allen, $11m
