Ashton Kutcher's move to "Two and a Half Men" has paid off.
The 34-year-old, who signed on to the show in May of last year, is No. 1 on Forbes' list of the highest-paid actors on TV.
According to the publication, Kutcher made an estimated $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. (His Emmy-winning co-star Jon Cryer, meanwhile, brought in around $13 million.)
No, $24 million isn't close to the $40 million that put former "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen in the No. 1 spot on this same list in 2011, but times have swiftly changed. Sheen, who rebounded with a new TV show on FX, isn't on the highest-paid actors list at all this year.
Coming in at Nos. 2 and 3 behind Kutcher are former "House" star Hugh Laurie, who made an estimated $18 million between May 2011 and May 2012, and one of the stars of the now defunct "Men of a Certain Age," Ray Romano. With his voiceover work in the "Ice Age" franchise and his old sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond" in syndication, Romano earned an estimated $18 million as well.
Coming in at No. 4 on Forbes list is "30 Rock's" Alec Baldwin with $15 million, and rounding out the top five is "NCIS" actor Mark Harmon, who also earned an estimated $15 million over the past year.

THANKS FOR INFO
Don't Get It, 2&1/2 Sucks, It's Aweful & Kutcher, Smart, Hot but it's aweful....painful and just plain wrong.
is zombie gay?
Give the money to Jon Cryer. At least he can act as his Emmy win shows.
I should not had so many beers last night and smoked weed. I am never drinking again.
WHERE ARE THE WOMEN??
There are talented and funny women anchoring (starring & producing) some great shows – Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, to name a couple.
Sadly, this is not at all surprising. I don't expect to see pay equity any time soon, and certainly not in Hollywood.
So how much does Big Bird make?
it was time for allan to starting dating new people anyway...it was getting stale with charlie
I tried watching the new episodes with Ashton in them and I can't even finish one! Charlie MADE the show interesting. Now it's a total snooze.
$24 Million? Really? Ashton sucks. Ashton's comedic timing is really bad. The humor seems forced. The dynamic relationship of Charlie and Allan that made Two and a Half Men funny is gone! Say what you want about Charlie Sheen but he was more fitting to make the show funny! Ashton is way too much of a "pretty boy" to be a comedian.
Couldn't agree more. The dynamics between Charlie and Allan were what made the show so funny. I still watch the reruns every chance I get and laugh out loud every time. The whole premise of the new Two and a Half Men doesn't even make any sense to me. I tried to watch it a couple of times, but never made it through an entire episode. I also hate the remodel job done on Charlie's malibu home; no personality.
When did Ashton Kutcher become an actor?
when people started paying him to act
is someone i'd love to snap up for the evening
he's so hot for an older man isn't he...
NCIS is one of the most watched television programs, both in total viewers (it's ranked with NBC Sunday Night Football), and in the top twenty with the 18 – 49 demo. Not bad for a show that has been on the air for several years.
Mark Harmon earns every penny CBS pays him, in addition to the USA network, which airs repeats of NCIS.
Sorry,but the show isn't as good without Crazy Charlie,he is a much better actor Ashton.Jon Cryer and the supporting cast are the ones holding the show together.
John Cryer should be paid the most - he dealt with Charlie and now Ashton. At least Charlie was funny; Ashton isn't.
Definitely way over paid.
OMG...so many Haters here...it's so funny watching y'all hate on a Good Looking Guy making Millions!!!! <3 Ash !!!!
Any adult or teen that uses the term "haters" should probably be ignored, but I've got to ask why you feel the need to be the complete, extreme opposite and "love" someone for.... what, being a known actor?
Proof of the dumbing down of America. There are fine dramatic actors in series like "Mad Men", "Homeland" but this empty headed boob is the highest paid?
This is one reason why the major networks have been losing so many viewers.
For whatever reason, people like or have liked that awful show, which shows the "dumbing down", rather than how much someone is paid. I know a guy with no intellect, skills or talent that had his parents fund his company for him (he has a story how he built it up himself, which is BS) and he sold it for $225M this year, all for doing/knowing nothing. At least Ashton has a fan base and put in the work (as if acting is work, but you get the idea).
he was the whole show.
"Men" and "How I Met Your Mother" should both be cancelled. This season of "2 Broke Girls" and my former fave "The Big Bang Theory" hasn't been so great, either. C'mon CBS!!!!!!!
saw about 15 min of it the other night...its not as funny as when charlie was there.
Wow, 2 Men and a Kelso pays that knucklehead what? Without Sheen the show isn't funny. I tried watching a couple of times but became exasperated by the dullness of the show.
I want Charlie back its not so funny anymore so I dont watch the show any more why is Ashton their he needs to go back to the 70s show so Eric sister can get her job back ok
Why no love for Louie C.K.? He be the funniest man on TV!
All because Demi put him on the map! He should kiss the ground she walks on!
2.5 Men could have been so much better without Kutcher. Alan could have struggled to pay for the house, maybe adding Herb as a roommate. And, of course, there could have been a lot of cute scripts with guest stars about roommates Alan lets move in. As it is, I have stopped watching the show. Can't stand that English woman, and the writers have made Alan too pathetic. Ashton is definitely not worth the money!
If you no longer watch the show I dont think you can say he is worth it or not.
This is why the human race is rapidly making itself obsolete. Anything is better than what is apparantly considered the best of the best of prime time sir!
To all no-talent dbags out there...this is a sign that you too can make millions just by being as annoying as possib;e. This guy is a loser.
You sound gay.
How many shows are you starring on?
Is the guy in the stripedy shirt a homer? He looks a little light in the loafers.
Not a mark on the soles of their shoes.....cleanest house ever even if they haven't gone outside. And Ashton is the worst. Amazing how these women and men make a career out of looking good. They add nothing else. Ashton is a boy.
The top 12 are all men. Why isn't Tina Fey on this list instead if that buffoon, Alec Baldwin? Why are two men from The Big Bang Theory but none of the women? Speaks volumes about the lies from Hollywood trying to make us all believe that the world would be better if we did things their way.
i lik 2 and a half men. not as much as with charlie but it is still kind of funny. i am a guy and dont live with my mom fyi
aston is that popular?
Thanks for sharing this precious information, I really appropriate it.
I want a refund.
Hiram Lorre is just paying Ashton a bunch of money because Charlie Sheen burned him. The problem is Charlie doesn't care.
I agree. What a waste of money. Kutcher couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.
And what a waste of money it is.
Wait....Aston Kucher is an "actor"?!? When did THAT happen???
The moment Snooki Polizzi became a "celebrity" and lowered the bar so much that even *she* could stumble over it in a drunken stupor.
how much longer can that show survive? He doesn't have the presence nor comedic delivery for the show. He should have stuck with dude where's my car level humor and demi.
HE WAS A BOY WHEN HE GOT MARRIED.....NOW HE IS A MAN WITH A DIFFERENT MIND SET..
Can you say "Overpaid and No Talent"
How sad is that??
What a weak list of highest paid 'actors' there.
Poor Demi – he keeps getting all the breaks!
What a waste of 24 million. Kudo's to him for a big payday despite have ZERO acting skills!
this is so pathetic. he can't act and is a world class dbag and is famous and dating mila kunis after using demi moore so you see everyone – there can't be a god
Sure, there's a god.....but there is also KARMA!
Ashton is an ACTOR?
Capitalism has a whole new dimension.
If I was that gay guy on the show that has been in it forever I'd be really p!ssed.
Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher are terrible actors. I don't get it. I would love to know the demographics, teenage girls and guys that live with their mom's?
never watched the show............. give me Mad Men any time.
I hate the show 2 1/2 men. But I have to admit, whenever I'm forced to sit in a room when it's on, I laugh. So I guess these guys are earning their money because it probably is not so easy to act so stupid...
I posted a comment and it didn't show...how come??????????????????????
Meanwhile, Topher Grace just signed up for a part-time gig at the Home Depot making $8.27 an hour. This Ashton lives a charmed life...maybe the most charmed life ever. He's a loser in Iowa (sorry, that is redundant), becomes a model and then lucks out with That 70's show. His movies are unwatchable yet he is rolling in cash and hot Va J J. After I figure out infinity, I will try to explain A. K.
Two comments: 1)Anton – apparently you have not a clue about talent. Mark Harmon is exceptional in NCIS; 2) Ashton Kutcher clearly is – at best – a marginal talent. He totally sucks.
Wow,,,,, if this is true and i believe it is then TV is definitely in trouble...(lol) Pitiful.
Wow Mark Harmon. Pays to not be able to act.
