Ashton Kutcher is at the top of the Hollywood food chain these days, thanks to “Two and a Half Men” and his tech investments. According to Forbes, the actor raked in about $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012, making him the highest-paid actor on TV.
“Two and a Half Men” alum Charlie Sheen topped the list last year at $40 million, but has since dropped off. His new “Anger Management” deal, however, could make him a contender next year.
Below are the top earners. Go to Forbes.com for the complete list!

The hit FOX show's 19 nominations is "kind of outlandish," Lynch laughed, "Maybe even a little over the top. It may be too much."
