FUNFACT:  A friend once dragged me to a taping of The People's Court.  There is some great footage of me diving behind a bench to avoid detection by the camera as it pans over the audience.

I have to assume that the couch-bound people that watch Judge Judy are helpless to resist the siren song of infomercials that play during daytime programming.  "Life alert?  I need that.  Moneyline?  Ooh, that, too.  I don't have a vagina, but that vaginal mesh liability thing looks interesting..."

$47 million dollars per year.  She is the ballinest baller that ever balled!

sigdiamond2000: I don't understand this headline.


The article's headline and focus was on the "new king of late night TV," which is to say that Jon Stewart has ascended to the throne with his $25 million dollar salary.  They then go on to dish about Ashton Kutcher et al, and it isn't until the lists at the bottom that one sees Judge Judy making nearly double what Stewart now does.

Versace is a high-fashion clothing designer.  Coture is a term for one-offs and custom-made clothes from a designer, as opposed to their manufactured line.  Beeches is a mispronunciation employed to avoid the filterpwnage.

Yeah, but Judge Judy has a syndicated daytime show. What does that have to do with Jon Stewart?

Why would the article say "Jon Stewart is the new king of late night...but, oh yeah, Judge Judy makes $47 million, so it doesn't count"?

I think it was more of a simple, "Holy balls! Judge Judy makes *how* much?!"

Nah, if it were Versace it would be neon yellow with gold lamé and crystals everywhere.  More like Jil Sander or Junya Watanabe.

Yes, that is basically it.  Paragraphs and paragraphs of detail about all these people that earn waaaay less than Judge Judy, in an article about the highest-earning TV personalities, and she doesn't get a single mention other than in the lists.  They talked about Simon Cowell's syndicated empire, why not the Honorable Judge?

I'm just freaking shocked, alright!?!?!   ;-)

But I still like Jon. Unfortunately there's no way in hell they'll give Oliver the 10:30 slot for his own show. An hour and a half of Oliver, Stewart, and Colbert every night would make me so very happy.

According to TFA, Stewart is the highest paid anchor of a fake news program, earning $25 million.
Megyn Kelly is 2nd at only $6 million.

Can't believe Matt Lauer makes 20 mil a year.  Your average news anchor makes around 35-55k a year.  I bet there are thousands of anchors who could take over for him without losing any ratings.

Or we can have Stewart at 11:00, Colbert at 11:20, and Oliver at 11:40, and cut all commercials.

Why would anyone watch Judge Judy when this hottie is on another channel?
 
2013-08-20 11:44:30 AM
I imagine Letterman's salary 20 million is just his salary for hosting The Late Show. It probably doesn't take into account that he is the owner of the production company that produces The Late Show and The Late Late Show.

I wonder how much of a profit Comedy Central is raking in on The Daily Show and Colbert Report to be able to pay Jon Stewart, at least, more than the network hosts.  I also wonder what they charge cable companies per subscriber for carriage fees compared to, say, CNN.

What does Colbert get paid?  Or Conan, for that matter?

I know it's all for show, but it bugs me when she does the sanctamonius "if you need money go pick up cans or beer bottles, do anything to pay the bill you owe". All the while she makes $47 million a year playing a "judge" on television. Somehow seems perverse.

Drama Series Salaries:

Mark Harmon (NCIS): $525,000 + points
Claire Danes (Homeland): $250,000
Michael Weatherly (NCIS): $250,000
Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones): $150,000
Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black): $50,000


Maslany likely works three times as hard as anyone else on that list, but nice to see someone from a sci-fi series get some recognition.  If season 2 of Orphan Black is as solid as season 1, I think her stock can only go up.

IIRC, Stewart owns the production company that makes The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. Colbert is just an employee- so Colbert gets his salary, probably $1 million or so, and Stewart gets a salary plus whatever's left over from the production company's share of the ad money after the rest of the salaries have been paid. Same reason Letterman gets paid zillions and Craig Ferguson doesn't.

I was pleased to see that Peter Dinklage is the highest paid Game of Thrones actor. The Emmy and Golden Globe wins probably help in those negotiations, but he really is the star of that cast.

Colbert's show, in design, is pretty similar to Stewart's; make fun of the headlines, bring on the guest, chat and discuss, and you're done.  A third half-hour of the same pattern wouldn't work, and it only works for Stewart and Colbert because the moods of the shows are so wildly different.

I'm betting we see one of two things happen in the next 12 months.  Either Stewart announces his plan to retire from the Daily Show, with Oliver taking over the reins, so that Stewart can focus on more influential and meaningful projects like the movie he's wrapping up, or Oliver does get a third show in the lineup but they use a completely different model, perhaps making it more of a Real Time-esque debate show with 3-4 others discussing the news from a host of perspectives.  Because I like that idea, but holy god Maher's a giant dickhole on his show.  I think Oliver could keep it lighthearted enough without losing the seriousness of the stuff being discussed.

I could see that working.  Maher can be a dickhole from time to time, and sometimes it feels out of place, but other times it's necessary because someone on his panel is just spewing blatantly false propaganda or two or more members of the panel end up in a shouting match and someone has to step in to keep the whole thing from going down in flames.

I do appreciate that he doesn't let people get away with relying on partisan talking points without backing up what they say.  Any time religion comes up though you know it's going to be rough, because he just can't help himself from elevating himself up to shiat all over it.

Yeah, it sounds good, but it's honestly a fast way to get burnout, both for the writing teams and for the audience.  What they should do, though, is give Oliver a Saturday night show for a Weekend Update-style thing.

Maybe they can convince Comedy Central to buy a "The Bugle" show and John and Andy can have an hour long Sunday-morning type show.

I now want this to happen. Please let this happen.

One difference is that Judge Judy is syndicated, which is where the big money is. When people watch a woman describe how she loaned her boyfriend money for a car payment (boyfriend: it was a gift!) but didn't get anything in writing, they won't know or care if all this happened four years ago or yesterday. Daily Show episodes aren't as flexible.

The daily show is usually entertaining, but as demonstrated this summer, it isn't dependent on Stewart. Can put any mediocre comedian in that chair and the show doesn't lose a beat. On the other hand, I don't see how anyone could step in and take colbert's place. The show is dependent on his unique comedic styling. So, Colbert should demand a raise from Comedy Central

But then again, she does almost with 100% of the time bring her A game. My only issue with her is on abortion topics...it's almost painfully obvious how she angles her reports even if the facts due on technicality line up with her ideology.

Is that per episode? Because those numbers look really low.

And also it doesn't matter how hard an actor works, it only matters how popular their show is. All of those actors had to work hard and hustle to get up in the pay ranks, once you are up there you don't have to work as hard, that is just the way it is.
