Nicole 'Snooki' PolizziX17

It's no secret that TV stars get paid a lot of money. But when you do the math, sometimes it makes sense ... and sometimes it doesn't.

SODAHEAD SLIDESHOW: See TV's highest paid stars. 

According to the Los Angeles Times, Snooki makes $1.2 million for "Jersey Shore." That's a heck of a lot of money just for being ... Snooki, but when you crunch the numbers, she only gets $0.16 per viewer.

Compare that to Chelsea Handler, who earns $12 million for her late-night talk show -- that's a hefty $16.70 per viewer.

It's astounding to note that "Judge Judy" still makes $45 million a year -- $5 million more than Simon Cowell. And love her or hate her, Tyra Banks makes $4 million a year for "America's Next Top Model."
