TV's Highest Paid Stars: What They Earn

Jon Stewart

There is a new king of late night, according to TV Guide Magazine's annual survey of star salaries. And he's a very rich king.

The Daily Show host Jon Stewart is now earning between $25-30 million a year, according to several sources (his network, Comedy Central, did not comment). That puts Stewart ahead of the past perennial late night salary leaders Jay Leno and David Letterman. Leno took a significant pay cut last year, as NBC wanted to reduce costs at Tonight. He now earns around $20 million a year after being up near $30 million. Letterman is also said to be in the $20 million range as the license fee CBS pays to his production company, Worldwide Pants, for Late Show has been reduced in recent years.

CBS Boss on Cote De Pablo's NCIS Exit: She Just Didn't Want to Do the Show

Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo

CBS CEO Leslie Moonves wants to make one thing clear: The network didn't let NCIS' Cote de Pablo leave the show without putting up a fight.

"We offered Cote de Pablo a lot of money, and then we offered her even more money," Moonves told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews Monday. "We really didn't want to lose her. We love her; we think she was terrific. ... Ultimately she decided she didn't want to do the show."

Cote de Pablo exiting NCIS

De Pablo announced her exit earlier this month, one week before the show was scheduled to begin production on its upcoming 11th season. She expressed her gratitude to the show and its cast and crew and said she would return for a few episodes to end her character's story. But how could CBS lose the leading lady of the No. 1 show on television?

"It was purely her decision," Moonves continued. "NCIS was the highest-rated show on television last year. We don't like losing anybody, but we did everything humanly possible. We feel like we exhausted every opportunity, and she just decided she didn't want to do the show."

Some other highlights from Moonves' executive session.... read more

Exclusive: Stephen Colbert on the Late Night Wars

Stephen Colbert and wife Evelyn

Stephen Colbert's alter egomaniac on The Colbert Report may be a hawk, but the real Colbert is a peace-loving guy, at least when it comes to the late-night battlefield. We caught up with the Comedy Central cutup — in a rare interview out of character — at the opening-night gala for the Montclair Film Festival in his adopted home state of New Jersey (his wife Evelyn is one of the fest's organizers).

12. Worst Dating Rule: Ryan Lochte may not want to do The Bachelor, but he's still looking for love on What Would Ryan Lochte Do? the only way he knows how. Seriously, he only knows one way: take a girl out for a little raw fish, because he's "never met a girl that didn't like sushi." (Until he meets Megan, who has never eaten sushi or even heard of wontons.) When his older sisters learn this, they reprimand him for taking all his dates to the same place. "It might be the same place. It might be the same table," he says. "But it's a... read more

12. Best Dynasty Homage: There's been a lot of death and violence on The Following, but until this week, the show had been seriously lacking one key dramatic television component: a catfight. Fortunately, we can check off that box after Claire confronts Emma, the Follower who posed as her nanny and kidnapped her son. Claire slams her against the wall in a chokehold and repeatedly insists, "I'm going to kill you." Just the kind of woman who might marry a serial killer, ay? We finally... read more
