Simon Cowell may not be used to sharing the spotlight, but it seems he may have to after he was named joint top in a poll of America's highest earning TV personalities.
X Factor founder Cowell was named in first place alongside America's Got Talent judge and shock jock Howard Stern, with both raking in around $95million in the 12 months to June.
Cowell took the top spot despite Fox canceling the U.S. version of his show after he walked away from the project, and after walking away from the America's Got Talent competition.
Forbes magazine spoke to agents, managers and lawyers of each celebrity to come up with estimates for their entertainment-related earnings.
In third place was controversial right-wing mouthpiece and ex-Fox News commentator Glenn Beck, earning an impressive $90milli
According to their data Oprah Winfrey earned $82million in the last year, putting her in fourth place, a dramatic fall from the 2012 list in which she was named top with earnings of $165million.
TOP EARNING U.S. ENTERTAINERS
Phil McGraw - more commonly known as Dr Phil - is in fifth place with earnings of $77million.
Ellen DeGeneres, the chat show host and comic, ranks sixth with $70million, followed by Rush Limbaugh on $66million and Ryan Seacrest on $65million.
Scottish chef Gordon Ramsay, host of Hell's Kitchen USA, came in at number nine with entertainment earnings estimated at $47million, while Judge Judy Sheindlin - the host of real-life courtroom drama show Judge Judy, completed the top ten with earnings of $47 million dollars.
As well as sitting on the judging panel for X Factor UK, Cowell also owns media production house and record label Syco, taking a cut from the earnings of every winner of the show.
Stern, meanwhile, has dubbed himself the 'King Of All Media' for his success as a writer, producer and host, and is thought to earn around $15million a year for starring on America's Got Talent.
