How Much Does Patrick Dempsey Make Per Episode of Grey’s Anatomy?
Patrick Dempsey has made the list of TV's top earners (the only Grey's Anatomy actor to make the list — curious considering Ellen Pompeo is the title character, no?) raking in a whopping $250,000 per episode. He was beaten out by top TV doc Hugh Laurie, who pulls in $400,000+ per episode, but who's counting? (Plus, Dempsey has better hair. We appreciate that whole rugged thing, Dr. House, but, uh, you're not winning any pretty boy contests.)
Dempsey also fell behind Kyra Sedgewick (who makes $350,000 per episode of The Closer), and Charlie Sheen (who makes $1.25 million per episode of Two and a Half Men...when he's not on hiatus in rehab).
But, we're pretty sure he's not complaining about his tenth place spot, or the cool quarter mil he banks every week.
