Despite all the trouble Charlie Sheen has been in recently, he still has one thing going for him: he earns more that anyone else on TV.

The Two and a Half Men star has been named the highest-earning TV star, finishing ahead of the likes of House actor Hugh Laurie and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest.

Sheen pulls a whopping $1.25m per episode of the sitcom, which he recently resigned on to for more seasons. Why wouldn’t you?

His co-star Jon Cryer earns a mild $550,000 for the same amount of work- coming in at second place on the list.

Hugh Laurie is the highest-paid drama actor, earning over $400,000 per episode of House, with Law & Order: SVU actors Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay tied at second on $395,000.

Comedy stars Tina Fey pulls $350,000 per episode for 30 Rock while The Office boss Steve Carell’s pay cheque reads $297,000 per outing.
