Forbes: The Highest-Paid TV Personalities

5 of 11

No. 6: Rush Limbaugh

$66 million

After the controversial talk show host called Sandra Fluke a "slut" for advocating insurance coverage for birth control, spooked advertisers started to slip away from his show after calls for a boycott. While any affect of the boycott was offset by listener enthusiasm during the elections, the controversy may have caught up with Limbaugh. There are reports that the situation created serious tension between Limbaugh and Cumulus media which owns 40 radio stations.
