DR PHIL IS THE HIGHEST PAID TV HOST, BUT DID ANY ‘DISH NATION’ HOSTS MAKE THE LIST?November 9, 2017
Forbes just released their “Highest-Paid TV Hosts 2017” list and sadly, Dish Nation hosts did not make the cut. Better luck next year, Gary!
WARNING: The list will make you feel really poor. Dr. Phil comes in at number one with $79 million. Cash him outside, how bow dah!
Dr. Phil’s negotiating skills are top notch. His contract permits him to gain a high percentage of ad and product placement revenue. He’s also been busy behind the scenes producing shows like The Doctors and Bull. Ellen Degeneres makes a close second at $77 million.
Ryan Seacrest made the list which is no surprise considering he’s the mastermind you either love or hate for introducing us to The Kardashians.
Bill O’Reilly made the list at 7th place with $37 million. He’ll probably want to save and invest that money well since it’s unlikely he’ll make next year’s list after his firing at Fox News following sexual harassment claims.
All in all, it looks like the secret to making this list aside from a nice chunk of change from hosting a tv show is to have a very strong side hustle, if not multiple! Gary, it may be time to start that speedo line….
See the full list below:
- Dr Phil – $79 million
- Ellen Degeneres – $77 million
- Ryan Seacrest – $58 million
- Judge Judy Sheindlin – $47 million
- Simon Cowell – $43.5
- Steve Harvey – $42.5
- Bill O’Reilly – $37 million
- Sean Hannity – $36 million
- Michael Strahan – $21.5 million
