We can all dream of being tv actors, but the highest paid tv actors outshine us all! For those with talent, skill, and maybe a little luck the payout and fame is well worth it. Curious as to who racks in the moolah? Me too! I gotta see some names I have heard before! Here are some of the highest-paid TV actors of all time.
The Highest Paid TV Actors You Need To Watch Again
Charlie Sheen made $1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men throughout the 2010-2011 season. Sheen played the role of Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men from 2003-2011. He won several awards for this role including the 2006 Golden Icon Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series and the 2008 ALMA Award for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Television Series. Besides Two and a Half Men, Sheen also played the role of Charlie Crawford in Spin City from 2000-2002 and the role of Charlie Goodson in Anger Management from 2012-2014. You know, I used to like Charlie on Two And A Half Men, but after he started back up with drugs, alcohol and regular tantrums in 2011, I lost a lot of respect for the guy. Maybe Charlie’s meltdow was a result of having TOO much money being one of the highest paid TV actors.
Ray Romano made $1.7 million per episode of Everybody Loves Raymond in 2003. Romano played the role of Raymond Barone on Everybody Loves Raymond from 1996-2005. He won a handful of awards for this role including the 2001 American Comedy Award for Funniest Male Performer in a Television Series, the 2002 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and the 2006 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Male Television Star. He also is known for being the voice of “Manny” in all of the Ice Age movies. Romano has also appeared in Men of a Certain Age, playing the role of Joe Tranelli from 2009-2011 and Parenthood, playing the role of Hank Rizzoli from 2012-2015. I saw Ray Romano perform standup comedy a few years ago; he ‘s just as funny in person.
Kelsey Grammer made $1.6 million per episode during the last two seasons of Frasier. Grammer played the role of Doctor Frasier Crane on Frasier from 1993-2004. He won a few awards for this role including the 1994 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series, the 1996 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy and the 2002 Satellite Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy. Besides Frasier, Grammer also starred in Cheers, as the same role of Doctor Frasier Crane, from 1984-1993 and Back to You as Chuck Darling from 2007-2008. Did you ever watch Frasier? If not, you should add that series to your must watch list.
Tim Allen made $1.25 million per episode during the final season of Home Improvement. Allen played the role of Tim Taylor on Home Improvement from 1991-1999. He won several awards for this role including the 1992 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Male Performer in a New TV Series, the 1995 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Series Musical or Comedy and the 1999 TV Guide Award for Favorite Actor in a Comedy. Tim Allen is also well known for his voice acting as Woody in the hit movies Toy Story. More recently you can watch a modern version of Home Improvement (Cause frankly, we know that’s how this show started!), and check out Tim Allen’s latest series Last Man Standing which has been on the air since 2011 and is currently in its fifth season. Catch up on this one on Netflix.
