Highest Paid TV Stars Revealed

We're in the wrong job!

Some of the stars of our favourite TV shows are making an extraordinary amount of money. Some of us would be happy to earn $1,000,000 in our lifetime let alone per episode of a tv show! If we earned that much for every episode we watched while on a Netflix binge we would never have to work again.
