Ashton Kutcher, Charlie Sheen

Forbes has released its list of the highest-paid actors on television this year. The countdown features a variety of stars from Patrick Dempsey to Jim Parsons, but the real questions is whether 2011's highest-paid actor Charlie Sheen reigned supreme again in 2012?

He did not! His Two and a Half Men replacement Ashton Kutcher topped the list, reportedly earning $24 million this year. In addition to his role on the CBS comedy, the actor is an active investor in Skype, Spotify and Airbnb. Sheen, who now stars on FX's comedy Anger Management, didn't even crack the top 10.
