This Jewish Celebrity Makes More Money Than Anyone on Television

Variety released a breakdown of the highest paid actors and personalities on television and the results are, for lack of a better word, staggering.

Judy Sheindlin, otherwise known as Judge Judy, racks up $47 million a year, making her the highest paid personality on television. Other Jewish stars headlining reality and talk shows are collecting sizable yearly pay checks as well, with Adam Levine making $13-15 million for “The Voice,” Chelsea Handler clocking in at $10 million a year for her Netflix show “Chelsea,” and Andy Cohen, the host of “What What Happens Live,” pulling in $4-5 million.

Television actors are also racking up sizable pay checks. Jonah Hill pulls in $350,000 per episode on the Netflix show “Maniac,” Sarah Jessica Parker makes $275,000 for each episode of her television show “Divorce,” and Mandy Patinkin gets $150,000 per episode on “Homeland.”

Well done, everybody. Well done.
