The Los Angeles Times did a breakdown per viewer of what TV stars are getting paid…and here’s the breakdown of some of the overpaid TV stars according to the Times:
Keith Olbermann makes $56.00 per viewer for his gig on Current TV (which is in flux, I think?)
Chelsea Handler makes $16.70 per viewer – She gets $12 million and the show draws in 0.7 million viewers
Anderson Cooper makes $13.54 per viewer for Anderson Cooper: 360 – He gets $6 million and draws 0.4 million viewers
Letterman makes $9.69 per viewer. His show draws in 3.2 million viewers.
Ryan Seacrest only makes $0.75 per viewer on Idol. He makes $15 million, and the show draws 20+ million
Ashton Kutcher makes $1.16 per viewer on Two and a Half. The show draws in 14.7 million viewers.
According the breakdown it looks like Keith and Chelsea have the best agents…I’d say they have a pretty good deal. I was shocked to read Anderson’s CNN salary. I thought he made way more than published. I’m sure he has a pretty sweet deal for his talk show, but still shocked about his CNN deal.
