Forbes reports that Simon Cowell is the richest man on TV. Between June 1, 2008 and June 1, 2009, the magazine estimates he took home a hefty $75 million.
Ryan Seacrest came in third (behind Donald Trump’s $50 million) with $38 million. We don’t really need to summarize what these two guys do. They do plenty beyond “Idol” to take home bucks.
No. 4 is Charlie Sheen at $21 million and Steve Carell at No. 5 with $20 million.

-This is the cover of Kat McPhee’s latest song “Lifetime.” She looks a bit like a blonde Sandra Bernhard. The blond is really not working for me. The publicist is still working on an interview for me with her. No date yet.
Allison Iraheta’s cover is much better. She really does look like the second coming of Avril Lavigne and her first single fits that mode as well.
