Simon Cowell will make 144m

144 million dollars per season. 144 million. Dollars. One hundred. And forty-four. Million. Dollars.  Per season.  Which is five months long. 144 million dollars for five months.  Five months. One hundred and forty-four million dollars to judge “American Idol”. For five months.

Fuck my life.

EARLY salary figures from Simon Cowell’s ‘American Idol’ contract negotiations are leaking out and they’re eye-popping.
Cowell, who reportedly made $36 million last year for judging the hit competition show, has been offered three or four times that amount — between $100 million and $144 million per year — by co-producers Fox and 19 Entertainment to stick with ‘Idol’ when his contract expires next May.
While $36 million may seem like a lot of money for five months worth of snarky comments and eye-rolls, it’s only a fraction of the estimated $900 million that ‘Idol’ rakes in a year.”

Hopefully Paula will read this and go to the producers and say she wants 144 million a year too.  If she does do that, cover your ears, because big laughs are coming.
