    Ashton Kutcher arrives at the special screening of "Jobs" at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2013, in Los Angeles.

    Now it's the men's turn to step into the money-making spotlight.

    A little more than a month after Forbes released its annual list of the highest-earning television actresses (with Sofia Vegara topping it for the second year in a row), the magazine has now revealed which male TV stars pulled in the most moolah between June 2012 and June 2013.

    Coming in at No. 1 is none other than Ashton Kutcher! The "Two and a Half Men" star banked a whopping $24 million. As if that wasn't enough, the guy is expected to make even more once his episodes of the CBS sitcom go into syndication.

    As for who came in second?

    Well, that would be Jon Cryer. Yep. Kutcher's costar. The actor pulled in an impressive $21 million.

    Meanwhile, Ray Romano took the No. 3 spot with $16 million, thanks largely to the huge royalties he receives from "Everybody Loves Raymond" being in syndication.

    Rounding out the top five are Neil Patrick Harris and Mark Harmon, who tied for fourth with $15 million each, and Patrick Dempsey came in fifth with $13 million.
