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.

Comedian Ricky Gervais has signed on for a role in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The Office creator will appear in the comedy series playing himself in the next season set for 2011.

Also, Gervais’ new comedy project with Stephen Merchant Life’s Too Short, examining the life of a dwarf in the entertainment business, may also be picked up by HBO who screens Curb in the US.

His Ricky Gervais Show is currently airing on the channel at the moment with a second season given the go-ahead already.

“This is what it’s all about,” Gervais told Daily Variety. “There’s nothing better than me and Steve coming up with ideas. It’s great to do a movie, do ‘The Simpsons’ and an awards show, but I don’t get that adrenaline rush in trying make Steve laugh. This is our DNA.”
