Forbes' highest paid TV stars

Slide 1 of 10

See who made the list for 2013Dorothy PomerantzForbesOur numbers come from research for our annual Celebrity 100 list, which is based partly on the entertainment-related earnings of Hollywood's biggest stars. Earnings estimates are based on conversations with agents, lawyers and other in-the-know folks. We do not deduct for taxes, management fees or the other costs of being a celebrity.No. 1: Sofia Vergara, $30 millionA woman sits atop the earnings pile (this year at least). With a haul of $30 million between June 2012 and June 2013, Sofia Vergara earned more than any other TV actor, male or female.Vergara, who stars on the hit sitcom "Modern Family," is paid about the same as the other main actors on the show, roughly $175,000 per episode. But Vergara stands out from the crowd thanks to her lucrative endorsements. Vergara shills for brands like Diet Pepsi, Cover Girl and the medication Synthroid. She also has one of the best deals around with Kmart; her line of clothing at the discount chain is helping to bring in Hispanic shoppers.Bing: 'Modern Family' | Watch clips and moreAlso: See photos of the 'Modern Family' castWant more TV?
