Eva Longoria and Tina Fey topped the Forbes Highest-Paid TV Actresses List this year, each earning $13 million between May 2010 and May 2011.

The ten women on the list earned a combined total of $94 million. Meanwhile, just the top three highest paid film actresses earned $88 million combined.

Tina Fey not only stars in "30 Rock," she is also the head writer and producer for the NBC comedy series. In addition, Fey released her first book, "Bossypants" in April, which sold 150,000 copies in the first month.

Several of the women on the list star in ABC's "Desperate Housewives," which will be wrapping up its 8th and final season this year. Longoria earned more than her co-stars thanks to her endorsement deals with L'Oreal and LG.

Her co-star Marcia Cross was third on the list, earning $10 million this year, while Felicity Huffman and Terry Hatcher tied for fifth place with $9 million salaries.

Also tied for third place with $10 million earnings were "Law & Order: SVU" star Mariska Hargitay and Marg Helgenberger from "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

The other actresses who made the list include former "Friends" star Courteney Cox, who now stars in ABC's "Cougar Town," Ellen Pompeo who plays the title role in "Grey's Anatomy" and Julianna Margulies, who recently won an Emmy for her role in "The Good Wife."
