TV Stars not worth their pay?

It seems everyone is overpaid in TV, Jonathon Ross being the most (in my opinion) gets paid £4.5 million a year for doing a show that only pulls in 2mil (a air 13 weeks a year!) and a saturday radio show – now that overpaid.

The YouGov poll found that 80% of people beleive that star’s wages should be cut. Peirs Morgan had only 6% of people thinking he deserved his pay. (personally he’s not worth a penny but hey). However I was shocked by Davina McCall’s , that only 9%! felt she was worth it (I like Davina! = 105%). However Simon Cowell also got the same, but he has made a show that pulls in 12 million veiwers in finals. The shows that he are in would be nothing without him, he’d remade reality TV. Now we see simon cowell rip-offs on cable compeition shows (like the orange band thing that was on 4Music). So surely he deserves the 6.6 million a year he gets paid for what he has done and because what else would stop him from leaving UK television (which in some ways could destroy ITV as its just basically lost its flagship show ‘The Bill’ in low ratings).
