Tv Stars Are Making Starry Salaries

June 17, 1985| From United Press-International

NEW YORK — Tom Selleck reportedly makes $4.8 million per season of "Magnum, P.I.," which could buy a lot of pineapple.

Selleck's salary was revealed in an article on star wages in Adweek magazine, which said Selleck turned down another $4 million to make the Diet Rite ads that Lee Majors stars in for $500,000-plus.

Gavin MacLeod's salary was listed as $1.4 million per "Love Boat" season, which is better than the $60,000-a-year earned by the average real life cruise ship captain.

Jane Wyman is said to pick up $1.6 million per "Falcon Crest" season, while her ex-husband earns only $200,000 as president of the United States.

Over on "Dynasty," John Forsythe reportedly earns $1.5 million per season, while Adweek said Joan Collins and Linda Evans make $1.2 million each.
