TV Guide is out with its latest list of television stars' salaries, and the numbers are eye-popping.

The publication ranked the highest-paid news anchors and daytime hosts for its latest issue, which is out this week. Matt Lauer stayed at the top of the list, pulling in a reported $22-25 million a year. Fellow morning hosts, including his co-hosts Willie Geist and Natalie Morales and "Good Morning America" rivals Robin Roberts and Lara Spencer, also made the cut, as did daytime talkers like Whoopi Goldberg and Kelly Ripa.

Bill O'Reilly, who has had the number one show on Fox News for many, many years now, makes a reported $18 million per year. MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Fox News' Shep Smith and Megyn Kelly and CNN's Anderson Cooper are also among the highest-paid hosts in the news business, according to TV Guide. Meanwhile, Brian Williams' $13 million salary is the highest among the network evening anchors.

TV Guide also published a roundup of highest-paid television actors.
