By  | 

In the past, movie stars have often been thought of as a level above TV stars. The quality was thought to be higher, and a bigger paycheck came along with it. But now, we're living in an era of prestige TV, and the best-of-the-best are trading in bigtime Hollywood roles for a shot on the small screen. Many of the highest-paid movie stars have made their own forays into the world of TV, and vice versa. Everyone loves TV, and there's a lot of money to be made.

When it comes to the highest-paid TV actors, some of these stars are total household names, while others have just ended up on long-running shows and kept going. No matter what other career choices these TV stars have made, they have plenty of money in the bank.
