Jobless Charlie Sheen Is The Highest Paid Man On TV (See Who Else Made Big Bucks)

10/14/2011 10:00am EDT
Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen has been named the highest paid actor on TV, despite losing his job on "Two And A Half Men."

The star had a public fall-out with the show's creator Chuck Lorre earlier this year following months of bizarre behavior and he was eventually fired in March.

Ashton Kutcher took over the lead role in the hit show, but Sheen still managed to top's recent rich list.

Sheen pulled in earnings of $40 million, making him the highest paid TV actor between May, 2010, and May, 2011.

He is followed by Ray Romano, who earned $20 million for his now axed "Men of A Certain Age."

Wishes Of A Television-aholic: 'Grey's Anatomy'

8/20/2011 1:00pm EDT
cast of grey's anatomy
When “Grey’s Anatomy” made its triumphant mid-season premiere in 2005, it was the much-needed cure for my nasty case of Bad-Television-itis, and a lusty, dramatic, hilarious parallel to my real life. Back then, this television-aholic was just a college student who worked part-time at a hospital and fantasized about some of the more attractive doctors who offered me, a lowly clerk in medical records, more than a perfunctory smile. Of course, the men on “Grey’s Anatomy” are hotter than all of the doctors in said hospital combined and the drama is juicier than a Georgia peach.

My love affair...

For three intense weeks, George and Cindy Anthony alternately listened and testified as the State of Florida methodically laid out a first-degree-murder case against their daughter Casey: Hair samples. Air samples. Damning computer searches for the words "chloroform" and "neck breaking." Having heard the state's case, do the parents who stood by her for three years before subtly pulling back as the trial began now believe their daughter is guilty? "Honestly, I think they're all over the place with that," says a family friend. "What they want, and what they've always wanted, is to know...

2/4/2011 9:25am EST
Callie and Arizona during happier times.
Episode 12 of “Grey’s Anatomy” Season 7 is one episode that has all the fans talking. The themes of baby-making and inappropriate relationships continued, but with a twist—and a life changing declaration of “I’m pregnant” coming from a somewhat unexpected surgeon at Seattle Grace.

“Grey’s Anatomy” episode 12 started with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) seated together in the bedroom looking at a pregnancy test. It read “not pregnant,” and Derek reassured Meredith that “next time” the results would be different. In typical Meredith fashion, she expressed her doubt that t...

Unfortunately, in the (prolonged) aftermath of the Season 6 finale, certain members of the surgical team have continued to balk at resuming their education—none more so than Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh).

“We’re all fine,” explained Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) during an early scene in the Grey’s Anatomy Season 7 premiere. For anyone who saw the explosive, heart-wrenching Season 6 finale, it might be hard to believe that anyone at Seattle Grace could be anything near fine. “We may look the same, we probably do—the change isn’t visible, at least not in most of us. But we’re all changed, completely—forever.” If you need a refresher on the events that happened in the Season 6 finale, read my review of the episode.

The actress says her character is going to have "some frustrating episodes" when the ABC medical drama returns on Sept. 23.

She told TV Guide, "The role that they have given Meredith is to take care of everybody and to try to make sure that everybody else is OK. She's the role of the caretaker, which, I guess, is her way of not dealing with her own thing."

Although this may be a bold statement to make- not all celebrities cheat on their wives. It is true that we were shocked when Tiger Woods' mistresses simultaneously appeared like they were emerging out of some whore clown car, and we still can't wrap out heads around why Jesse James would cheat on America's sweetheart, Sandra Bullock but there are men in Hollywood who are devoted to their wives. Just because they are famous and can essentially have any woman they please, these stars genuinely love their wives and have never strayed.
