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 Jersey Shore

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.

Emmy-winner Tina Fey welcomed her second daughter this week.

Already mom to five-year-old Alice, the 30 Rock star and husband Jeff Richmond now have their hands full with Penelope Athena Richmond as well!

The baby's gender was a surprise to the pair. "I'm just going to see what it chooses to wear to prom," Fey said while pregnant a few months ago.

The comedian called her second pregnancy "easy," but admitted agonizing over having a second kid and whether or not to expand their family.

Fey told Oprah earlier this summer, "My husband and I decided that we felt rather than risk having 30 Rock end in several years and feeling like part of our family is missing that we were going to prioritize our family."

We'd say she made the right call. Congratulations, Tina and Jeff!

There's no defending Tracy Morgan's recent homophobic rant, in which he referred to gays who commit suicide as "pussies" and said he'd stab his son if he were to come out of the closet.

Tina Fey, who works with Morgan on 30 Rock and has known him for years, isn't trying to. She said the "violent imagery" of the diatribe was "disturbing" to her and Morgan clearly "went too far."

But the actress also stood up for her co-star in general, telling TMZ yesterday that Morgan isn't a bad person.

30 Rock Scene

Morgan's hate-filled speech "doesn't line up with the Tracy Morgan I know, who is not a hateful man and is generally much too sleepy and self-centered to ever hurt another person," said Fey.

She added, referring to Morgan's follow-up statement: "I hope for his sake that Tracy's apology will be accepted as sincere by his gay and lesbian coworkers at 30 Rock, without whom Tracy would not have lines to say, clothes to wear, sets to stand on, scene partners to act with, or a printed-out paycheck from accounting to put in his pocket."

Do you accept the actor's words of contrition?

You gotta hand it to Tina Fey. Her impression of former politician and current celebrity Sarah Palin is so good, Fox News can't even tell them apart.

Reporting on Palin's heavily hyped One Nation bus tour, the channel actually used a photo of the 30 Rock star impersonating her in a faux debate.

Maybe they just prefer to look at Tina? Doubtful. Way to go, guys. As if this weren't absurd enough, Palin herself is a contributor to the network!

We haven't seen a move this boneheaded on camera since somebody claimed Paul Revere warned the British instead of the colonists ...

Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey returned to reprise her role as Sarah Palin in a debate sketch of potential Republican presidential candidates this weekend.

Introduced as "current famous person Sarah Palin," Fey wasted no time launching into her pitch-perfect impression of the '08 GOP vice presidential nominee.

"It's so nice to be back on FOX News, a network that both pays me and shows me the questions ahead of time," Fey gushed as Palin. "I just hope tonight the lamestream media won't twist my words by repeating them verbatim."

Tina Fey and Darrell Hammond

These two make an unbeatable political team. The actors, that is.

"First, I want to acknowledge that we have finally vanquished one of the world's great villains. I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric!" she added.

SNL may fall flat much of the time, but political sketches like this have always been - and remain - must-watch material. Having Tina as host doesn't hurt.

While Fey was terrific, Bill Hader (as Fox News' Shepard Smith) and Darrell Hammond (reprising his role as Donald Trump) really stole the show here.

Watch it after the jump ...

Forget the 30 Rock quotes she pens every week.

Tina Fey delivered two words during an interview with Oprah this week that will be far more memorable than anything Jack Donaghy has ever uttered: I'm pregnant.

Tina Fey and Jeff Richmond

During a chat that will air on April 12, the actress admitted she's five months along with her and husband Jeff Richmond's second child. Their first, a girl named Alice, is five years old.

Fey appeared on the program to promote her new memoir, Bossypants, which went on sale this week. We're so happy for the funniest woman on television!

30 Rock creator, executive producer and star Tina Fey is synonymous with funny. Her hit show and its cast members are perennial award show mainstays.

Her NBC comedy counterpart, Jenna Fischer, may have a more understated role, but The Office quotes she provides can be pretty darn hilarious too.

Whether she's delivering Parks and Recreation quotes, reading the fake news on SNL or giving birth to cute kids, Amy Poehler has always been a THG favorite.

Can Amy's red carpet fashion compete with a couple of NBC counterparts? You be the judge. In the middle, we have Tina Fey, perennial Emmy winner for 30 Rock.

Finally, we have Jenna Fischer, who looked just glamorous. If The Office star wore this to Dunder Mifflin, even less work would get done ... if that's possible.

Pretty Poehler

Which NBC comedienne looked best at the Emmys?

Barack Obama wasn't a big fan of Sarah Palin's uninformed criticism of his nuclear arms treaty with Russia this week.

But at least the President, along with all rational human beings, can take solace in Palin's existence for one reason only: it's enabled Tina Fey to deliver the best satire television has seen in years.

The actress was at it again last night, impersonating the former Alaskan Governor (and current professional, paid speaker of BS) on Saturday Night Live. Fey introduced viewers to The Sarah Palin Network, which is comprised of the following programs:

  • Are You Smarter Than a Half-term Governor?
  • Tea Party Wheel of Fortune (Example of a puzzle: Obama is a Terrist)
  • Hey, Journalist, I Gotcha! (Where "I re-edit my interviews with journalists to make it look like they were the ones that were woefully unprepared.")
  • Man in a Helicopter with a Sniper Rifle vs. Wild

It takes a lot to upstage Justin Bieber on the show, but Fey did it with this great skit. Watch below.
