Ashton Kutcher is now the highest paid actor on television, tied with Hugh Laurie of House fame. They both earn $700,000 an episode. I understand why Hugh makes big bucks, he is a proven success, but I do not understand why Ashton makes the same amount. He has not been on a hit show in years. He was on That 70's Show, but he was only a "star" because of his looks. His acting his horrible. He created and hosted "Punk'd, but he did not do much, just narrated and show up at the end. So why is he earning so much? His co-stars earn much less and they have been on the show from the start. This could be considered a F U to Charlie Sheen, though he was making roughly $2 million an episode before before he was fired. The show will have one good season and then it will possibly be cancelled, if the fans decide to stick around that long. I am giving him and I guess the producers of the show a Digit Down.
