Imagine for a moment: You're running a Los Angeles TV station. You're losing viewers to cable. Revenues are down. And suddenly you wonder: "Do I really have to pay this sports guy $600,000 a year to read the baseball scores? Do I really have to pay this anchor $750,000 a year to read a couple of lines about a meaningless three-alarm warehouse fire?"

Is John Madden worth $8 million per year? Rupert Murdoch, the chairman of the Fox television network, apparently thinks so. As expected, it was announced Monday that Madden will be Fox's lead football analyst beginning next season, and sources are now saying he got a four-year, $32-million contract. Initially, it was reported as a $30-million contract. If the $32-million figure is right, he will make $325,000 per game . Few network analysts make that much a year.
