Tina Fey and Eva Longoria are the best-paid U.S. television actresses, according to a list published by Forbes magazine, which places both women in a tie for first place with annual earnings of $13 million each.

The stars of "30 Rock" and "Desperate Housewives," respectively, made these earnings between May 2010 and May of this year, the publication said.

Fey is also the main scriptwriter and executive producer of the NBC comedy, and her book "Bossypants" sold 150,000 copies in the first month after it was published in April.

Meanwhile, Longoria is the best-paid actress on "Desperate Housewives" thanks to her endorsement deals with brands such as L'Oreal and LG.

Her castmates on the ABC production are also on the list of best-paid actresses.

Marcia Cross is in third place, with earnings of $10 million, while Felicity Huffman and Teri Hatcher are tied for fifth place, with $9 million each.

Two other actresses also occupy the third-place slot: Mariska Hargitay ("Law & Order: SVU") and Marg Helgenberger ("CSI").

Rounding out the list are Courteney Cox and Ellen Pompeo, both with $7 million in income, and Julianna Margulies, with $6 million.

The figures on the Forbes list were calculated using data provided by attorneys, producers and agents to estimate the gross incomes of each of the actresses.
