Forbes has published a list of the Top 10 female earners in prime-time television; Tyra Banks and Katherine Heigl top the list.
With an estimated $30 million in earnings, it’s not a surprise that Tyra Banks tops the Forbes’ list. Between “America’s Next Top Model,” “Tyra,” guest-starring on shows like “Gossip Girl,” and working behind the cameras as a producer for a variety of shows, Ms. Banks is taking over the airwaves.
Coming in at #2 with $18 million is “Grey’s Anatomy” star Katherine Heigl. This one is a little surprising, considering her rocky relationship with television, but between her show, endorsements and her ability to carry a film, Heigl has become an extremely wealthy woman.
Rounding out the list are #3 Marg Helgenberger at $9.5 million, #4 Eva Longoria Parker at $9 million, #5 Mariska Hargitay at $8.5 million, #6 (tie) Julia Louis-Dreyfuss and Maura Tierney at $8 million, #8 Tina Fey at $7 million, #9 Marcia Cross at $6.2 million and #10 (tie) Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ellen Pompeo at $6 million.
