Judge Judy made $147 million this year, despite only shooting her show for two months.
The TV judge - whose real name is Judith Sheindlin - was named the highest-grossing television host in the world by Forbes this week.
In addition to her salary, the 76 year old sold her entire 10,400 Judge Judy episode archive to CBS for a $95 million.
The New York native's new deal now allows the network to air the show in online players and on streaming services.
To determine the rankings, Forbes estimated earnings come from data from Nielsen, IMDB, and Box Office Mojo, and all the numbers are before tax, and have not accounted for extra deductions like agent fees.
Despite being on screens across the world for 23 seasons, Judge Judy consistently brings in more than 10 million daily viewers.
