Ashton Kutcher

Forbes has just released its list of the highest paid actors on television, and it might surprise you to learn that Ashton Kutcher comes out on top.

Last year, Charlies Sheen easily landed himself at the top of the list, but a lot of things can change in just a year. In 2012, Sheen didn’t even place anywhere on the list. However, there is a fundamental difference that should ease Sheen’s mind. When he placed highest on the list in 2011 for “Two and a Half Men,” his annual salary was $40 million. Kutcher’s salary for that same show is nearly half that at $24 million.

The other actors finishing out the list of the top 10 are Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano, who tied at $18 million; Alec Baldwin and Mark Harmon, who tied at $15 million; Tim Allen, $14 million; Jon Cryer, $13 million; Patrick Dempsey, $12 million; and Jim Parsons and his co-star Johnny Galecki, who tied at $8 million.
