Despite losing his job on "Two And A Half Men"....Charlie's STILL on top. For now.
Charlie Sheen has been named the highest paid actor on TV by Forbes. He had a public fall-out with the show's creator Chuck Lorre earlier this year following months of bizarre behavior and he was eventually fired in March.
Sheen pulled in earnings of $40 million, making him TV's highest paid actor between May, 2010, and May, 2011.
He is followed by Ray Romano, who earned $20 million for his now axed "Men of A Certain Age."
Steve Carell is in third with his $15 million pay check from "The Office," with "NCIS" star Mark Harmon coming in fourth with $13 million.
Sheen's former co-star Jon Cryer and former "CSI" actor Laurence Fishburne were joint fifth with $11 million each.
Also in the top 10 were "Grey's Anatomy's" Patrick Dempsey ($10 million), "The Mentalist" star Simon Baker, House's Hugh Laurie and "Law & Order: SVU" star Christopher Meloni all tied with $9 million.
