Sofia Vergara Named Highest Paid US TV Actress

Sofia VergaraSofia Vergara has been named the highest paid US TV actress for a second year running.

The Modern Family star reportedly earned a whopping $30 million between June 2012 and June 2013, from both her role on the hit sitcom and numerous endorsement deals, which is more than double the income of her closest rival, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit actress Mariska Hargitay. The Colombian beauty is thought to have commanded big bucks from mega-deals with companies including Diet Pepsi and Kmart due to her popularity in Latin America, a growing market in the business world. Sofia, 38, has her own clothing line with supermarket chain Kmart - for which she was paid a staggering $7 million advance - as well as deals with the soft drinks company, furniture chain Rooms to Go, cosmetics brand Covergirl, Comcast, State Farm Insurance and more.

The brunette beauty's $30 million windfall puts her comfortably ahead of Mariska, 49, who earned $11 million over the last year, according to financial magazine Forbes.

If you rely on TiVo to record episodes of (and not Outsourced) like I do, you may have missed this extra nugget as well.

At the very end of the recent episode, viewers got a chance to see the material Michael Scott (Steve Carell) used for a Sweeney Todd audition.

NBC Lays Out Post-Leno Schedule

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Drama, Prime Time, Reality, NBC,

Law & Order: SVUAlthough it’s still unclear exactly when Conan O’Brien will finally depart The Tonight Show (it’s believed his last day will be January 22), we do know what will air in place of Jay Leno’s soon-to-be-old time slot.

As NBC Universal TV chairman Jeff Gaspin stated earlier, the network will not be introducing five new dramas to that time period. Instead, the network has basically reshuffled programs already placed on their midseason schedule.

Starting Monday, March 1, these are the shows that will air at 10:00: (a move from Friday time slot), Parenthood, Law & Order: SVU (originals will move to later time slot), The Marriage Ref and Dateline NBC.
