‘American Idol’ named #1 money-maker on TV

HollywoodNews.com: It’s good to be ‘American Idol’ as the show was reportedly TV’s #1 earner last year as it brought in some major money.

According to ‘Forbes,’ in 2010 ‘American Idol’ made about $7.11 million per half hour, states MTV. And while that may seem major, the amount is reportedly a 12% drop compared to 2009.

Coming in a distant second was Charlie Sheen’s show ‘Two and a Half Men’ that brought in $2.89 million per half hour.

Are you surprised ‘American Idol’ was so far ahead?
