(Newser) – Think Miley Cyrus is the highest-paid child actor on TV? Not even close. Angus T. Jones, the 16-year-old “half” of Two and a Half Men, makes $250,000 an episode. Miley doesn't even crack the top five. The New York Post lists the top 10:

  1. Miranda Cosgrove, 16: $180,000 per episode for iCarly.
  2. Selena Gomez, 17: $25,000 per episode for Wizards of Waverly Place.

  1. Dylan and Cole Sprouse, 17: $20,000 each per episode for The Suite Life.
  2. Keke Palmer, 16: $20,000 per episode for True Jackson.
  3. Miley Cyrus, 17: $15,000 a pop for Hannah Montana. But don’t feel too bad for her—she makes five times that much for one concert, and an industry source says she’s “worth a billion.”
