Effing Snooki. Just kidding. Seeing if you're paying attention!

SNL great and 30 Rock Emmy-winner Tina Fey is TV’s highest-paid actress, according to Forbes, as is Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria. Both stars tied with $13 million in earnings between May 2010 and May 2011. Impressive.

Both stars also earned big bucks outside their TV roles.

Tina Fey channels her inner Jersey Shore on Late Night. Hilarious.

Fey's book Bossypants has been a huge seller, while Longoria's deals with L’Oréal and LG are highly lucrative. Third on the list? Eva's co-star Marcia Cross.

Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay and soon-to-be-former CSI cast member Marg Helgenberger earned a healthy $10 million apiece to tie for third place.

Cougar Town‘s Courteney Cox and Ellen Pompeo of Grey’s Anatomy both earned $7 million, while The Good Wife star Juliana Margulies made $6 million.

Desperate's Teri Hatcher and Felicity Huffman also made the Top 10.
