Judge Judy Tops Forbes’ 2018 List Of Highest-Paid TV Hosts

Published

on

When one considers the top-paid TV host could be, one may think Ellen DeGeneres or Dr. Phil McGraw. Not this year. That honor goes to TV’s biggest and toughest judge––Judge Judy Sheindlin.

Rolling In The Dough

Sheindlin was at the top of Forbes‘ list of the highest-paid daytime TV hosts for 2018. The judge earned a whopping $147 million pretax last year. Her earnings included $47 million from her long-running show, Judge Judy, and producing Hot Bench. Most of that huge payday, however, was due to a pretty big deal with CBS.

In 2017, Sheindlin sold the rights to all 5,200 episodes of the show, as well as all future episodes, to the network. That deal earned her another $100 million. It also made the judge the 48th-richest self-made woman in America with a net worth of $400 million.

Sharp Judge

Of course, Sheindlin is known for her no-holds-barred, tough judgement in the courtroom. Her wise cracks and no-nonsense attitude has kept her on air since 1996.

Even after all of this time, Sheindlin still loves what she does. “Many people, as I did in the beginning, get stuck with a job they don’t really like,” she shared at the 2017 Forbes Women’s Summit. If you’re not doing something that you love to do, find something that you love to do, because it will make your whole life different.”

Other Top Hosts In TV

Ryan Seacrest came in fourth with $74 million, and Steve Harvey rounded out the top five with $44 million earned. All of these hosts have built strong and loyal audiences over the year, so it’s no surprise that each of them are at the top of this list.
