Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is the franchise’s strongest effort to date, averaging an estimated 53 million viewers each week including original episodes and extensive syndication.

She continued on into season 13 of SVU for the first few episodes before her character was handed a promotion, which left the actress with a backseat role on the series.Whether she leaves the cast is up in the air, but Hargitay takes her work home with her; after playing sex crime detective Olivia Benson for twelve years she has founded her own non-profit, The Joyful Heart Foundation to confront childhood sexual abuse.Total earnings: $10 million.

1 – Sofia Vergara
Though the Modern Family star may seem like an overnight success, she has actually been working towards super-stardom for more than 17 years. 2012 was a boom year for the Colombian native: she had three movie roles, scored endorsement deals in English (Cover Girl, Diet Pepsi) and Spanish (Burger King, Comcast and State Farm) and launched a clothing line with KMart that earned her a seven-figure advance.
