How does Kelly Ripa’s salary compare to Matt Lauer on “Today” and Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show”?
TV Guide recently released its annual salary report, a list which rounds up the paychecks of some of television’s highest-paid actors and TV personalities.
Jon Stewart may be the highest-paid late-night host; however, there’s one woman who has been keeping him at bay from being the highest-paid on television.
Sajak has been hosting 'Wheel of Fortune' for more than 31 years. Last year, Sajak told The Huffington Post he may be nearing the end of his time hosting the game show; however, he still has another few years on air.
O'Brien's switch to TBS has proved more profitable than his late-night network competition. He has been hosting 'Conan' since 2010 on the network. This past May, O'Brien signed a new deal to stay on TBS through 2018.
Ripa took over hosting duties on 'Live!' in 2011 after the departure of Regis Philbin. The former soap opera actress has been a part of the morning show since 2001. Her co-star, Michael Strahan, reportedly receives $US6 million per year for 'Live!' in addition to his $US4 million yearly salary from Fox Sports for his role as an analyst on 'Fox NFL Sunday.'
Stewart is the highest-paid late-night host on television for his satirical 'Comedy Central' series 'The Daily Show.' He has been hosting the talk show since 1999.
Recently, Stewart took three months off last year to work on his directorial debut, 'Rosewater,' about a journalist taken prisoner and tortured in Iraq for over 100 days.
