The Vampire Diaries Bite: Damon Becomes Harder for Elena to Resist

On the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries, rekindled couple Stefan and Elena shared some touching moments as the new vampire struggled to make it through her transition. But now that she's a full-on vamp, it won't be long before her connection to Damon becomes increasingly hard to resist.

"Damon as a reckless, spirited, wild vampire without a care in the world ... is going to be a very alluring draw for the reckless side of newbie vampire Elena," executive producer Julie Plec tells us in this week's Vampire Diaries Bite.

'Apartment 23' Sets Romantic 'Happy Endings' Crossover

The second-year comedy will tip its hat to it's new ABC Tuesday night lead-in with a romantic plot point for Krysten Ritter's character.

ABC's sophomore comedy Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 is tipping its hat to its new Tuesday night companion, Happy Endings, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The comedy from Nahnatchka Khan and David Hemingson will feature a crossover to the third-year comedy in its Oct. 30 Halloween episode when June (Dreama Walker) has some fun creating a YouTube video featuring a certain bitch.

"It's basically a video like fans make on YouTube with clips of The X-Files where Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) fall in love," Khan told THR on Tuesday at a Paley Center event featuring both shows. "June has made a video of Chloe (Krysten Ritter) and one of the Happy Endings guys falling in love."

The comedies relocate from Wednesdays to Tuesdays starting Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. with the third season of Happy Endings followed by James Van Der Beek starrer Apartment 23.

"They were super nice and let us shoot a little thing with them. It's cool," Khan says of the show's new lead-in. "You'll have to see who she chooses."

The question remains: Is Chloe a Dave (Zachary Knighton), Max (Adam Pally) or Brad (Damon Wayans Jr.) type of girl in June's eyes? Hit the comments with your thoughts.

Grey's Anatomy Scoop: Is There Hope for Cristina and Owen?

Sure, Mark Sloan and Lexie Grey died, and Arizona had her leg amputated. But what has been most painful for some Grey's Anatomy fans this season is the agonizing distance between Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd).

After the plane crash, Cristina hightailed it out of Seattle, willing to deal with the harsh winter of Minnesota to get as far away from her old stomping grounds as possible. Does her move signal the end of C/O as we know it? "I think they really are destined to be together," McKidd tells

Let's all take a moment to exhale. Below, McKidd dishes on what's in store for the troubled lovers this season, including Owen's big move. Plus: What are the repercussions of the plane crash? Get the scoop:

What can you tell us about Cristina and Owen's journey this year?
Kevin McKidd: It's hard to see just how they're going to fix things. They're pretty damaged and there have been wrongs done on both sides. They're both pretty strong-willed people, they love each other and they've got this deep connection that's undeniable. In the first couple of episodes, you don't really see them make much headway. Owen's trying to reach out to Cristina and she's not really able or willing to receive much from Owen yet. There's still that distance between them that hopefully will break down as they move forward. They're very much as separate as they've ever been even though they're married.

But is there hope for them?
McKidd: I think there's hope. I just hope they can make it because I think they're a cool couple and I think they really are destined to be together, but how they do that is hard to tell at the moment. I think it's going to be Owen striving to win her back, but it's going to take a while.

With all the death and damage from the plane crash, Owen seems to be handling being in charge well.
McKidd: The good thing about Owen this year is he's rising to the occasion. Even though this is maybe the toughest year at Seattle Grace with all this loss going on, he's doing a good job. He's not a shoulder to cry on or touchy-feely, but he knows what people need.

He also needs his own safety valve. I think he realizes, in the episode that I'm directing, through speaking to Callie [Sara Ramirez] and going through his own process, that he needs to simplify his life. Things are so complex here. So, he decides that he's moving out of the firehouse and he's going to ask Derek [Patrick Dempsey] if he can stay in the woods in the trailer. It seems like the natural place for Owen to regress to when things are really bad. He goes to the ultimate man cave and just really downsizes his life and just lives out in the woods and runs the hospital. He's in a bit of a holding pattern, in a way. He's waiting to see where Cristina is, he's feeling very helpless and very out of control and all that stuff, so that's how he's coping with it.

Does he feel any guilt over forwarding his calls during the plane crash?
McKidd: I think obviously he feels responsible. It was under his watch that this thing happened, even though it's not his fault. He can't help but feel this survivor's guilt. That will play out in an interesting way. It might be something that could come back to haunt him. He's going to be under a lot of pressure in the coming episodes and that's going to get ugly professionally for him.

Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) will be going through PTSD, surely. Will Owen be there to help her?
McKidd: I think he hopes that Arizona can get back to a place where she can be back running the department again. But amputation, it takes as long as it takes. She's in her own inner circle of Callie and the guy that's going to rehabilitate her.

What does his relationship with Derek look like this season with Cristina gone and Mark (Eric Dane) dead?
McKidd: There's a lot of honesty between him and Derek. We clear the decks. We've always been quite honest with each other, but this strips their relationship down even more and they get much clearer and simpler with each other while everything around them is so complicated. Initially you see them being quite there for each other and you definitely see that friendship gather steam.

Will Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) be there at all to help him with the Cristina stuff?
McKidd: I think there's a tacit agreement now. Owen and Cristina are made for each other, and I think Meredith's more on that side now. She gets what the connection is between Owen and Cristina more than she ever did.

Will Owen try to find someone new while Cristina is away, or does he feel too much guilt after cheating on her?
McKidd: I think he's manning up to what happened. He's holding out for Christina. Whether that will be reciprocated, he doesn't know. But until he's explored every avenue to see if it's healable and fixable, then he's going to hold out for her because she's the love of his life. I think he still hopes that she feels the same way about him.

5 Things We Learned From the American Horror Story: Asylum Premiere

Anthology series American Horror Story kicked off its second chapter, subtitled Asylum, and it made the first season look like child's play.

Set in the 1960s, the series takes viewers inside Briarcliff Manor, an asylum for the criminally insane run by the Catholic Church. Where the first season was the study of adultery, Year 2 takes a look at the definition of insanity. From those who run the asylum all the way down to the inmates, it's anyone's guess as to who is truly sane.

Since Season 2 is a completely different story from the first season, with completely different characters, let's take a look at the 5 things we learned from the season premiere:

1. A dis-arming honeymoon spot: In modern day, newlywed lovers Leo (Adam Levine) and Teresa (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) are spending their honeymoon having sex in each of the 12 most-haunted places in America, one of them being Briarcliff Manor, which still holds plenty of spooks even though it has been condemned. Leo learns this the hard way when his whole arm is ripped off. As Teresa tries to get him out of Briarcliff, she realizes they've been locked in and attempts to get out through the death tunnel, but her path is blocked by — wait for it — Bloody Face, this season's equivalent to Rubber Man.

2. Briarcliff's sick past: Briarcliff Manor was once the largest tuberculosis ward on the East Coast, claiming more than 46,000 lives before the Catholic Church turned it into an asylum. In the '60s, the asylum is headed up by Monsignor Timothy Howard (Joseph Fiennes), the tough-as-nails nun Sister Jude (Jessica Lange), who has a penchant for wearing red lace underneath her robes of God, doormat Sister Eunice (Lily Rabe) and Dr. Arthur Arden (James Cromwell), whose failed experiments seem to be haunting the woods outside Briarcliff with an insatiable hunger for human flesh.

3. Bloody Face suspect No. 1: Happy-go-lucky gas station attendant Kit Walker (Evan Peters) and his African-American wife had to hide their interracial marriage during that era. After three women are found decapitated and skinned, Kit is accused of being the infamous serial killer Bloody Face. In truth (we think), Kit and his wife were both abducted by aliens, who are still holding her captive. The only one who's on his side is fellow inmate Grace (Lizze Brocheré).

4. Commitment issues: Lana Winters (Sarah Paulson) comes to Briarcliff under the guise of writing a puff piece about the manor's bakery, but she's really there to gain access to the newly incarcerated Bloody Face. After encouragement from her life partner, Wendy (Clea Duvall), Lana decides to write an exposé on Briarcliff, which requires her to sneak back into the hallowed halls. Lana is then forcefully committed after Jude blackmails Wendy into signing a sworn statement that her lover is insane. Lana is now among the other inmates including nymphomaniac Shelley (Chloe Sevigny), possibly sane Grace and hothead Spivey (Mark Consuelos).

5. More Manor mysteries: Briarcliff's secrets extend further than how those in charge deal with the inmates. Within a spare room, adorned with scratches on the walls, lies something, or someone, who was the cause of Leo losing his arm and knocking out Lana. The question is: What is it? Could it be Bloody Face? Or something even more terrifying?

TBS Calls on CONAN Fans to Rise Up and "Occupy CONAN"

CONAN to Become First Late-Night Series to Invite Fans To Re-Create an Entire Episode Through Crowd-Sourcing

TBS's CONAN is about to become television's first late-night talk show to invite fans to re-create an episode through crowdsourcing. The "Occupy CONAN" campaign will challenge fans to work together to produce an entire episode. The campaign is set to begin in early November with an official kick-off announcement by Conan O'Brien. The fan-sourced episode will then air on TBS in January.

"Through the 'Occupy CONAN' campaign, Team Coco and TBS are turning over the reins of the show to the youngest and most digitally connected audience in late night" said Jeff Gregor, chief marketing officer of TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "Following on the heels of Team Coco's Emmy(R)-winning synchronized tablet app, the 'Occupy CONAN' campaign is yet another terrific example of how CONAN is leading the industry when it comes to creating innovative opportunities for fan engagement."

"We value the passion our fans have for the show," added Conan O'Brien. "'Occupy CONAN' is a great chance to get them involved in a new and unique way."

During an episode of CONAN in November, Conan O'Brien will announce the formation of the "Occupy CONAN" movement. He will invite fans from across the nation to rise up and re-create an entire episode of CONAN. The episode fans will be tasked with creating will be a special compilation episode made up of great moments from the show's second season.

Fans will be able to sign on as members of the movement and watch the selected episode through Team Coco's "Occupy CONAN" website at They can then begin taping exact replicas of everything from Conan's opening monologue to skits to celebrity interviews. Fans can work on segments by themselves or together with other fans.

All videos must be submitted to the "Occupy CONAN" website by the announced deadline. Team Coco will then evaluate the videos and assemble the best version of each episode segment into a complete "Occupy CONAN" episode. The episode will air on TBS in January during CONAN's regular timeslot.

Could 'Walking Dead' Become TV's Top Scripted Show?

Could AMC's "The Walking Dead" become the top-rated scripted show on TV?

Yes. It looks distinctly possible that a zombie show, based on a comic book, on a network no one paid much attention to just five years ago, could end the season ahead of juggernauts like "Modern Family" and "Big Bang Theory" in the most coveted demographic on television. At the very least, it could easily emerge as TV's top drama in the demo.

No cable series has ever finished an entire season as TV's top-rated scripted show. If "The Walking Dead" it does, it will be a watershed moment in the history of television.

Settle in if you like underdog stories, because this is one -- with zombies.

On Sunday, "The Walking Dead" season 3 premiere broke audience records for basic cable dramas by scaring up 10.9 million viewers. But forget that cable record, for a moment, because it also did something arguably more impressive.

By broadcast network standards, 10.9 million viewers would be strong, though not spectacular. What's more significant is that "The Walking Dead" thrived in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers. It scored the best rating for any scripted show that aired on any network – broadcast or cable -- in a year.

The last scripted show to beat a 5.8 in the demo was a "Modern Family" episode that earned a 5.9 last Oct. 12, almost exactly a year before "The Walking Dead" premiere.

"Modern Family" ended last season the top-rated scripted show on TV. (The top unscripted shows, in descending order, were NBC's "Sunday Night Football," Fox's "American Idol," and NBC's "The Voice.")

But "Walking Dead" could become TV's top scripted show this year if the ratings hold. And there there is reason to believe they can -- because the audience for "Walking Dead" has grown like a horde of zombies.

The show set a cable viewing record with its season 2 premiere, then broke it with its midseason return, then broke it again with its finale. And broke it again Sunday.

Did we mention that "The Walking Dead" aired against "Sunday Night Football" in much of the country? Or that it isn't carried by satellite provider Dish, which is locked in a dispute with AMC?

Those facts aside, "The Walking Dead" would still seem an unlikely hit. Underdogs don't come from much closer to the ground.

It sprang from the imagination of childhood friends Robert Kirkman (right) and Tony Moore, two Kentucky kids who dreamed of publishing their own comics. The "Walking Dead" series, which debuted in 2003, was only one of their collaborations.

AMC, meanwhile, was best known for rerunning old movies until it broke through with "Mad Men" in 2007.

Did anyone think then that a zombie comic crossed with a rebranded movie network would spawn one of television's biggest hits? A show that also happens to be incredibly violent and gory? Sunday's premiere began with a close-up of a clouded zombie eye, and ended with a man getting his leg sawed off with no anesthetic.

It's not mainstream stuff, and for that reason, there are limits to the potential reach of "The Walking Dead."

Neither it nor any other scripted show has much chance of beating "Sunday Night Football." And despite its success in the key demo, "Walking Dead" will probably never come close to the number of total viewers earned by older-skewing shows like "NCIS" and "Dancing With the Stars."

But those 18-49 ratings still make AMC salivate like so many drooling… you get the idea.

Cheryl Cole meets 'Geordie Shore' girls

Two Geordie Shore girls met their idol Cheryl Cole last night thanks to the power of Twitter.

Charlotte-Letitia Crosby and Sophie Kasaei were invited backstage at the 'Call My Name' star's 'A Million Lights' tour after encouraging their followers to tweet Cole and ask for backstage passes for the pair.

Kasaei tweeted: "Right I want all of our amazing fans to tweet @CherylCole for me and @CharlotteGShore and tell her we want to meet her 2nite."

Crosby added: "Every tweet @cherylcole for me And @SophieGShore we would love to meet her tonight please guys thanku so much if we all tweet shel mite c it."

Cole, a fellow Geordie and fan of the MTV reality series, was made aware of the campaign by Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts after she spotted the tweets.

Roberts replied: "@CharlotteGShore @sophiegshore Girls I've told her, sorted it for you!! She's excited!!"

Crosby and Kasaei were handed access-all-areas passes and granted a meet and greet with their hero.

The Geordie Shore girls previously described Cole as a "great role model" and Geordie "ambassador", while the singer was rumoured to be planning a cameo on the show.

'Downton Abbey' cast know when show will end, says Brendan Coyle

Downton Abbey star Brendan Coyle has revealed that the cast know when the show will end.

The actor, who plays valet John Bates, joked that the hit period drama would turn into Emmerdale if it continued into a more recent era.

"I can pretty much say all of us know when Downton is going to end," Coyle told the Radio Times.

"This is a show with a finite life. If we bring this into the '50s, it's Emmerdale."

Speaking of his own character, who is accused of his wife's murder, he added: "Bates was in the Boer War. He would have killed a lot of people. Does that mean he can kill his wife? What does it do to you?"

Insiders have predicted that Downton Abbey will run for two more series, before drawing to a close when key actors move on to other projects.

Jessica Brown Findlay, who ­played Lady Sybil, is already filming Winter's Tale with Russell Crowe, while Michelle Dockery and Rob James-Collier apparently want to launch US careers.

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes recently revealed that he is interested in creating a prequel to the series, focusing on the beginning of the relationship between Cora and Robert.

CBS Adapting British 'Bake Off' Series

CBS plans to get totally baked with its latest project.

The network is adapting the British culinary competition "The Great British Bake-Off" for American audiences, the network said Wednesday.

The series, tentatively titled "Bake Off," will hit the airwaves next year and feature "skilled amateur Americans competing in baking challenges with one ultimately being crowned the winner," according to the network.

The British series, which wrapped its third season Tuesday night, has proved to be a hit for BBC, and has spawned spinoffs in Denmark, Sweden, Belgium and Poland, and was recently sold to other international markets.

Produced by Love Productions USA, "Bake Off" is executive-produced by Richard McKerrow ("The Great British Weather," "Kidnapped by the Kids").

'Being Human' creator teases new villain: 'Phil Davis is glorious'

Being Human creator Toby Whithouse has dropped hints about the show's new villain.

Whitechapel star Phil Davis will appear in the drama's fifth series as the "manipulative... and cruel" Captain Hatch.

"In episode one there's a scene that puts a full stop on the Old Ones, and we move on to much bigger and greater threats," Whithouse told SFX.

The writer went on to describe the character of Hatch as "gloriously horrible", praising the "brilliant" Davis.

"I can't tell you how happy I was when we got Phil," he said. "I was writing the first draft of episode six, which is a colossal episode for the character, and I was struggling to find the character's voice; something about it wasn't clicking.

"Then I thought, 'Oh, y'know who'd be brilliant for this part? Phil Davis'. Suddenly, writing that character became infinitely easier."

Being Human will return to BBC Three with six new episodes in 2013, with Kate Bracken joining the regular cast as new ghost Alex.

'X Factor' Rylan Clark slammed by vocal coach: 'He's a circus act'

Vocal coach David Grant has criticised The X Factor and controversial contestant Rylan Clark.

The former Fame Academy coach told Sky News that Clark is "unbelievably fame-hungry".

"You have had in the many years of X Factor many people desperate for success. But this is the first person I have ever seen that would dress up and cross the street to be at the opening of an envelope," he said.

"Rylan is the man who has had the greatest songwriter of our generation told he is deaf by someone who manages Jedward. Every time you think X Factor is a talent show, something like this happens to remind us that it's not."

Grant added that talented contestants always leave before acts such as Clark.

"If you are a circus act and you are somebody that people are going to look at because it is car crash TV and on the other hand you have the really good singer, the really good singer goes home because of the circus act. It's not a talent show."

Clark has been surrounded by controversy since he escaped elimination and Carolynne Poole was sent home in the first week of the live shows.

He was reportedly evicted from the Corinthia Hotel along with fellow contestant Lucy Spraggan after a drunken night out yesterday.

TOWIE: Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone call off engagement

TOWIE stars Lucy Mecklenburgh and Mario Falcone have called off their engagement – but have insisted that they’re still together!

We saw the dramatic end to the pair’s engagement in last night’s episodes, after the pair rowed over texts Mario had been sending to other women.

The row got even more heated as Lydia stepped in, with Mario branding her a “f**ing busy p***k”.

But Lucy fumed at Mario: “Everything is wrong with you bantering a girl when it’s about them in a leotard.”

Mario hit back: “I’ve said I’m f***ing sorry! The boys don’t think I’ve done anything wrong. Yes I admit I’m in the wrong, but it’s not the worst thing in the world.”

And he then suggested that the pair call off their engagement.

He said: “We were happy before we were engaged. That ring, to me, is a symbol of the bad memories and everything that’s happened over the past few months.”

Lucy agreed: “We’re getting rid of the ring. It will feel weird without it, though.”

Honey Boo Boo Recites Classic Christopher Walken Lines, Thus Completing the Circle

What goes around comes around, it seems.

After video of Christopher Walken and his "Seven Psychopaths" co-stars reciting lines from TLC's lamentably popular "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" surfaced on the internet, the powers that be apparently felt that it was only fair for Honey Boo Boo (aka Alana Thompson) to take a crack at channeling Walken.

Thompson gamely tackles classic Walken lines from such films as "Balls of Fury,"  Catch Me if You Can" and "True Romance" -- though, when it comes to the infamous watch scene from "Pulp Fiction," the duties are handed over to Alana's mother June. (In case you're not familiar with the speech, it gets a little blue.)

Dylan McDermott Returns to 'American Horror Story' for Another Run of Sexy Terror

"American Horror Story" is adding a very familiar face for its second season -- and it's quite the last-minute addition.

Dylan McDermott, who starred as philandering husband Ben Harmon in the first season, and met his demise in the season finale, is coming back to the series.

"American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy  revealed  the news on his twitter account Wednesday, writing, "So thrilled to announce Dylan McDermott is returning to American Horror Story!"

Murphy did not elaborate on the nature of McDermott's character, and a spokeswoman for FX has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.

The second season, which is dubbed "American Horror Story: Asylum" and premieres on FX on Wednesday night, brought back several cast members from its first season, including Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Zachary Quinto, though they will be playing different roles than in the first season. While the first season took place in Los Angeles, the second season is set in an East Coast insane asylum.

"American Horror Story: Asylum" boasts an impressively massive cast, including Chloe Sevigny, James Cromwell, Adam Levine and Lange. The series has also signed on a number of guest stars, including former "Deadwood' star Ian McShane and "Breaking Bad" star Mark Margolis.

'Young Apprentice' return date confirmed by Lord Alan Sugar

Lord Alan Sugar has confirmed the return date for the new series of Young Apprentice.

Series three of the BBC One show will premiere on Thursday, November 1 at 8pm, Lord Sugar confirmed on his Twitter page.

Karren Brady and Nick Hewer will return as aides to the entrepreneur, reporting on the candidates as they progress through the process.

Zara Brownless was crowned winner of the last series. The 16-year-old won a £25,000 prize fund.

Back in August, Lord Sugar denied tabloid reports that he was considering axing the Young Apprentice format after failing to attract similar ratings to the original. A decision on further series has yet to be announced.

XFactor 2012: Chris Maloney 'faking nerves', say former colleagues

Chris Maloney is faking his X Factor nerves, former colleagues of the singer have claimed.

The Liverpudlian singer was seen shaking on stage during his first audition, but since then many have claimed it was all for the cameras.

As well as being a seasoned cruise ship entertainer, it’s now been revealed Chris also appeared in panto as a Genie.

An ex-colleague told The Sun: “Many of us who have worked with him cannot believe some of the rubbish he is coming out with… He was arrogant and cocky. I never saw a trace of nerves.”

It was reported by the Daily Star this weekend that Chris had also been attacked by his finalists backstage over his apparent “diva” antics.

A source told the tabloid: “He’s not particularly liked backstage because he’s a diva and thinks he’s the star of the show.”

The supposed insider added to the newspaper this week: “And let’s face it, he’s not that great when he gets out on stage either.

“Most people reckon his nerves are a complete act too because it’s funny how he’s shaking one minute and then suddenly he’s fine.”

'The One Show' Rickshaw Challenge for Children in Need returns

The One Show has announced that the Rickshaw Challenge for BBC Children in Need will return this year.

Six young people will ride from Llandudno to London to help raise funds for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

Host Matt Baker, who last year raised £1.9 million after completing the gruelling journey from Edinburgh to London, will ride alongside the group to offer support and advice. Alex Jones will also rally support along the way.

'Team Rickshaw' will be made up of six youngsters who have been or still are supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects.

They will start the journey on November 9 and will attempt to complete the 411-mile route in eight days.

Baker said: "The Rickshaw Challenge is one of the toughest challenges I've ever taken on. These youngsters are going to have their work cut out for them.

"That's why the public needs to get behind Team Rickshaw and come out and cheer them on. I know from the challenge last year what a difference the public's support can make.

"We need to get behind them as they strive to raise as much money as possible for BBC Children in Need."

Jones added: "I've met all the team. They are a really inspiring bunch. It will be a real honour for Matt and me to be with them on their journey."

Viewers can donate £5 to the cause by texting TEAM to 70705, with texts costing £5 plus one standard rate message. More details can be found on the Children in Need website.

Ludo Lefebvre, Brian Malarkey Cook Up a Deal With ABC's 'The Taste'

ABC's upcoming culinary reality show "The Taste" just added a couple more ingredients.

Pop-up restaurant pioneer Ludo Lefebvre (pictured) and "Top Chef" alum Brian Malarkey have signed on as mentors for the series, joining Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson for eight episodes of the show.

"The Taste," which premieres next year on ABC, will feature Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey coaching a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call as they vie to create the best tasting dish. As these things often go, challenges will be issued, elimination rounds will be endured, and blind taste tests will take place.

“The Taste,” which comes via Kinetic Content, is executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski, Emma Conway, Bourdain and Lawson. Brian Smith is the director.

Ashton Kutcher Is The Richest Actor in Television? Someone Tell Charlie Sheen

Ashton Kutcher already nabbed Charlie Sheen’s role on “Two and a Half Men,” and now he’s got Sheen beat somewhere else – at the bank.

Kutcher is television’s highest paid actor, based on a Forbes list of TV's highest paid actors. According to the magazine, Kutcher netted $24 million in the period between May 2011 and May 2012, besting small screen mainstays like Hugh Laurie and Ray Romano ($18 million each).

Just a year ago, Sheen sat on the top of the list as his hefty “Men” payday supplemented the actor’s lavish lifestyle.

Sheen, who didn’t work much during that time period as he melted down in the public eye, should rebound thanks to his  FX show, “Anger Management.”

For now, it’s Kutcher on top, even besting his Emmy-winning co-star Jon Cryer.

And if you needed any other reason to be jealous of the actor and Silicon Valley favorite, he’s reportedly dating Mila Kunis.

He’s flush with green. We’re all green with envy.

Here’s the full list of the top ten:

1. Ashton Kutcher - 24

2. Hugh Laurie - 18

2. Ray Romano - 18

4. Alec Baldwin - 15

4. Mark Harmon - 15

6. Tim Allen - 14

7. Jon Cryer - 13

8. Patrick Dempsey - 12

9. Jason Segel - 8

9. Jim Parsons - 8

9. Johnny Galecki – 8
