However, despite the show's popularity, Hugh Laurie has not been able to wrestle the all-time title from David Hasselhoff who remains the world's most watched man on television - ever.
Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock earned a staggering £35million to become the "Highest Paid Actress" from June 2009 - June 2010, while Johnny Depp pirated wallets around the world to earn $47 million during the same period.

Seventeen-year old Angus T Jones, the "half" in Two and a Half Men, reportedly earned £157,000 per episode to grab the title of "Highest-Paid TV Child Star" while iCarly star, Miranda Cosgrove, became the 'Highest-Paid Teen Actress" earning £113,000 per episode.
