"Forbes" put out its annual list of 'The World's Highest-Paid TV Hosts', and "JUDGE JUDY" SHEINDLIN is #1 with an estimated $147 million haul over the past 12 months. If that sounds ridiculous to you . . . well, it is.
Here's the Top Five:
1. Judge Judy Sheindlin, $147 million
2. Ellen DeGeneres, $87.5 million
3. Dr. Phil McGraw, $77.5 million
4. Ryan Seacrest, $74 million
5. Steve Harvey, $44 million
This is Judge Judy's first time at #1. She has an annual salary of $47 million, but last year she also sold the rights to her show's reruns for an estimated $100 million.
