Charlie Sheen, Mariska Hargitay Among TV's Highest Paid Stars

Charlie Sheen is at the top of the scripted TV heap, according to TV Guide.

The mag reported that the "Two and a Half Men" star takes home $875,000 an
episode for his role as Charlie Harper on the CBS sitcom.

Last year, "Sopranos" star James Gandolfini led the pack with a whopping $1
million an episode for the final season of the HBO mob drama.

Among the rest of TV's highest paid men in 2009 are "24" star Keifer
Sutherland ($550,000 an episode), "House" doctor Hugh Laurie ($400,000)
and Christopher Meloni of "Law & Order: SVU" ($400,000).

Lower down on the list were such stars as "30 Rock's" Alec Baldwin
($300,000), "Grey's Anatomy's" McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey ($250,000) and
"Mad Men" main man Jon Hamm, who earns $75,000 per episode - just above
"Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford ($50,000).

On the ladies' side, Christopher Meloni's "Law & Order: SVU" counterpart brings
home top dollar - along with a quartet of successful "Housewives."

Mariska Hargitay earns $400,000 an episode for her role as Detective Olivia
Benson on NBC's "SVU," tying her with four "Desperate Housewives" stars
- Eva Longoria Parker, Teri Hatcher, Marica Cross and Felicity Huffman.
