According to Forbes, the four main ladies of 'Desperate Housewives' made it on the list. So did Julianna Margulies of 'The Good Wife.'
What about Tina Fey, one of the busiest ladies in comedy? You betcha!
Combined, the Top 10 ladies made $94 million between May 2010 and May 2011.
Forbes took into consideration salaries and endorsement deals while compiling their list. Remember, some of these women are also producers on other projects.
So, who's tops and who is set to do some climbing? Find out below!
According to Deadline Hollywood, the news was completely unexpected considering all four of the show's big stars -- Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross, and Eva Longoria -- had signed on for two more years, and creator Marc Cherry had publicly stated he wanted the series to run for nine seasons.
The aforementioned funny ladies gathered as part of The Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable series to discuss their big breaks, best moments and those bad jobs everybody in the industry seems to have had.
In the video, Poehler attributes the success of her transition from improv to 'Saturday Night Live' to her experience with the Upright Citizens Brigade.
"It's very difficult to comment on your own career," Poehler said, with the other women nodding in agreement. "It's very strange, you kind of want to leave it up to other people to dissect it."
'The Office' star Fischer wasn't shy about revealing details of her career. She admitted to working as a telephone psychic and spending three years working at a car wash.

Teri Hatcher and Ryan Seacrest? There have been rumors the two were dating, something Hatcher disputed today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated). Hatcher explained the two were set up on a blind date by a friend whom Hatcher said is now "off the blind date list."
Hatcher looked like she just wanted to put the whole thing behind her. "It was years ago," she said. "It's fine. He's fine. He's great." Williams pressed for details, including what Hatcher wore and whether the date was painful and long. Hatcher said it was fine and ended in a little peck of a kiss.
"You didn't know he was rich at the time," said Williams. "No, I didn't know photographers were shooting," Hatcher responded. Keeping photographers busy is just one of Seacrest's many jobs.
Brooks was once a great stand-up, and he's quick on his feet. He looked at guest co-host Teri Hatcher and said, "I don't know what she did, but I have never seen Whoopi look more radiant." When Barbara Walters asked what was going to happen in 2030, remarking she wouldn't be there, Brooks reassured her that she would. "You will be here, because I didn't realize how young you were," he said, folding his arms and rolling his eyes.
But the most important question about the future came from Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Would Donald Trump be president? "I don't know how much I could say 'no' to that," he said. Hopefully, Brooks just saved us all a lot of aggravation.
On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC), Teri jokingly discussed her syndrome. Kimmel had never heard of "frozen shoulder" before. "Is that like frozen yogurt?" he asked. While demonstrating that it was a "real thing," Teri stretched her arm out -- and instantly hurt herself. "Ow! ...Owww! I can't believe I just did that on television!"
The 'Desperate Housewives' star said she has been so focused on work and family, especially her 12-year-old daughter Emerson and her parents, that she's put her love life on the back-burner. Hatcher is working on 'Housewives' and just signed on to play Lois Lane's mother in the final season of 'Smallville.'
While Hatcher didn't want to use her schedule as an excuse for not being in a relationship, she did say she hasn't had too much time lately to look for a mate. But she is open to suggestions. "I want to be in one," she told Williams, "if you have any friends..."
On Friday's edition of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), she used that talent to build-up to guest Teri Hatcher getting scared by the show's resident giant bee. She seemingly engaged Hatcher in a conversation about the appearance of bees on this season of 'Desperate Housewives' then, wham, Hatcher got buzzed. What worried Hatcher, however, was whether or not she revealed her crotch to the audience when she jumped in fright.
(S06E21) "I really need to surprise my audience." - Patrick
'Desperate Housewives' writers should have followed the dialog they wrote for Patrick and try to surprise us because 'A little Night Music' was anything but surprising. I expected much better this week since this is, after all, one of the last three episodes of the season.
Even if the episode was a let down, it did push the storylines a bit further and reminded us that you can't run from your past and lies all your life as they will catch you sooner or later.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the network would like another two seasons. Creator Marc Cherry has spoken of a nine-season run. But the core cast - Marcia Cross, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, and Eva Longoria Parker - are contracted for only one more season, and so far, says Deadline, there's been little negotiation between the network and the stars about an eighth season.
Let's get it out of the way right now: this week's episode, 'Epiphany,' is no 'The Best Thing That Ever Could Have Happened,' the show's 100th episode which starred Beau Bridges last season and had the same episode format. No matter, this week's installment offered us a nice walk down memory lane, including scenes with Mary Alice (above with 4-year-old Eddie, while showing us why the latter became to be the Fairview Strangler.
