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.
Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, is facing serious backlash after attempting to make a topical political joke out of the devastating Oklahoma tornado that has killed at least 24 people.

Jon Stewart still can't believe he didn't figure out that his former Daily Show guest Paula Broadwell was having an affair with ex-CIA director David Petraeus.
Broadwell appeared on The Daily Show in January to promote her biography of the retired general, and in light of the affair, Stewart now realizes that her appearance was comprised of "innuendo after innuendo."
Earlier this year, author Paula Broadwell went on a book tour to promote her biography of Gen. David H. Petraeus All In, including an appearance on The Daily Show. But now that Slate has outed Broadwell as the woman with whom Petraeus had a career-ending affair, her praise of the former CIA director is more than a little awkward.
