Forbes: The Highest-Paid TV Personalities

10 of 11

No. 1: Simon Cowell

$95 million

Since he left "American Idol," Cowell's profile in America has become more modest. But in addition to his judging work on "The X Factor," he's still a major behind-the-scenes mogul. "The X Factor" is now on in 41 countries and his "Got Talent" is the biggest-selling television franchise in the world. And then there's music: Cowell is the man behind the hit group One Direction, which formed out of the 2010 British version of "The X Factor."
