The "Grey's Anatomy" star earns big from the show which is in its 10th season. That doesn't leave him much time for other projects but the car fanatic recently hit pause to show Forbes his favorite spots in Malibu.
The artist formerly known as Doogie Howser makes his debut on the list thanks to the huge success of "How I Met Your Mother" and his correspondingly growing paycheck. The upcoming ninth season of the CBS sitcom will be the show's last, but NPH need not worry: he's a triple-threat, having hoofed it on Broadway and crooned onstage as four-time host of the Tony Awards. He also makes good money off of movies like "The Smurfs" franchise.
"Everybody Loves Raymond" may have left our screens eight years ago, but Romano still makes the list, with the bulk of his annual earnings coming from syndication of the long-running CBS sitcom. More recently, Romano has cropped up on NBC's "Parenthood" following the cancellation of his comedy vehicle "Men of a Certain Age." He also takes home a hefty paycheck for voicing the lovable wooly mammoth Manny in the animated movie series "Ice Age."

TV's highest-paid actor is laughing all the way to the bank since replacing Charlie Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" after the troubled star's 2011 flameout. Kutcher doesn't have the press profile he did when he was still married to Demi Moore, but he has one of the biggest social media followings in the biz and real cachet as a tech investor, with early plays in Skype, Spotify and Airbnb. He's still bringing in some residuals from early hit "That '70s Show" and he shills for Nikon's Coolpix range of cameras.
