Who Are Hollywood's Highest-Paid Celebs?

Media mogul Oprah Winfrey topped Forbes' list of the highest-paid celebrities, raking in $165 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Winfrey, whose earnings actually fell by $125 million from the previous year, remains at the top thanks to the final season of The Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as her eponymous magazine, OWN, her spin-off shows and Sirius radio deal.

Who Earns What: TV's highest-paid stars

Coming in just behind Winfrey is movie director Michael Bay,  who earned $160 million. His Blockbuster film Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, which he earns profits on, took in a whopping $1.1 billion at the box office.

Steven Spielberg took the No. 3 spot, earning $130 million in the last year. His company DreamWorks produced Falling Skies, Terra Nova and Smash for television and the Oscar-nominated films The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse.

Murder Joins a Crowded Friday Club

My loyalties are so divided on Friday nights. I want ABC’s so-so new crime drama Women’s Murder Club to do well enough to bring some much-needed eyeballs to the charming romantic comedy Men in Trees, which finally returns from a cruel nearly eight-month hiatus. With James Patterson’s name as a selling point for Murder Club (though he’s not writing this series any more than he appears to be penning half of the books that go out with co-writers’ names on his ubiquitous book jackets), the show certainly has a shot at commercial success, even on a night that’s widely considered a graveyard. Remember: This same night, and this same time period (9 pm/ET), is where the original CSI launched to even less fanfare, and the rest is TV history.But I also don’t want anything to take audience away from Murder Club’s competition, most notably NBC’s ever-fragile Friday Night Lights, which offers another superb episode this week.
