We know that top actors and actresses can make over $20 million for a blockbuster film, yet some of these top-caliber celebrities enjoy doing TV shows instead. While TV shows may not bring in a huge paycheck like a movie hit will, TV series offer a consistent steady flow of income, that does not end when it airs its final episode.
