Who will be the highest paid actors on TV this season ?

Once again, TV Guide managed to list some of the highest paid actors on TV. Obviously, plenty of actors are missing (it's not like they all go to the press to tell them how much they earn, TV Guide had to have a hard time getting this sort of information) but it gives an idea. It may sometimes be approximative.
