Making money.

Actress Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey, "Grey's Anatomy") appeared on last week's Forbes' 2012 list of the Top Ten Highest Paid Television Actresses. Pompeo, who fell into the eight slot on the list, is reported to have made 9 million dollars for the past year. Not all of that is income from the television series, but she did bring in $275,000 per episode for Season 8. In addition to her TV work, Pompeo has her own production company, Calamity Jane.
