Simon Cowell

Forbes magazine just released its list of the highest paid TV personalities, and Howard Stern and Simon Cowell tied for the top spot.

"The X Factor" judge and radio host each made $95 million between June, 2012, and June, 2013. Ironically (or maybe not really), Stern is a judge on Cowell's popular series "America's Got Talent." They are definitely sharing the wealth.

Cowell has been making headlines recently for having a fling with a married woman, who wound up getting pregnant. Oh, and she happens to be the estranged wife of his friend Andrew Silverman. Oops!

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck came in third place on Forbes' list with $90 million. He is followed by Oprah Winfrey ($77 million) and Dr. Phil McGraw ($72 million).

Rounding out the top 10 are: Rush Limbaugh ($66 million), Donald Trump ($63 million), Ryan Seacrest ($61 million), Ellen DeGeneres ($56 million), Judge Judy Sheindlin ($47 million).
