His paycheck, that is. Sources tell the Hollywood Reporter that the Two and a Half Men star is close to finalizing a new deal that will net him $350,000 per episode this season, making him the highest-paid sitcom star out there today. Of course, that's pocket change for Ray Romano, who by the end of Everybody Loves Raymond's run was pulling in almost $2 mil a week. (Then again, Ray hasn't seen Denise Richards naked. Unless he's seen Wild Things. But now my joke just got clumsy.)
