Andy Cohen is best known for his role on Bravo Network

Cohen got his start in the television industry with CBS. By the time he left the company after about a decade, he was producing television shows such as The Early Show, 48 Hours, and CBS This Morning. But his career hardly stopped there. He has since made appearances on shows such as Morning Joe, The View, and Live! With Kelly. Plus, he’s co-hosted several morning shows in the past. But once Bravo network came into his life, he truly became a household name. Cohen is the host of Watch What Happens Live, a nightly talk show that features everything going on in current celebrities’ lives. He consistently has famous celebrities on the show, and it’s given a major boost to his career. He began hosting the show in 2009.

Today, Cohen is worth around $15 million

Cohen might be a talk show host, but his production career has continued, too. He is also the executive producer of the Bravo franchise The Real Housewives. All of his major career moves have helped him earn an estimated net worth of $15 million. Cohen has also earned a massive social media presence and has starred as himself in other shows here and there, which have helped his income. He recently made headlines for welcoming his first child via surrogate. And he doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.

Ryan Seacrest stepped onto the small screen back in 2002 as the host of ‘American Idol’

Seacrest was practically born to be a television host. After hosting a few smaller-named programs in the early 2000s, he saw his first big break when he landed the job of hosting a brand new singing competition called American Idol. Since then, he’s become the highest-paid reality television host of all time. Seacrest currently hosts Live! With Kelly and Ryan, along with the American Top 40 countdown and On Air With Ryan Seacrest, both of which are radio programs. But he’s had a successful career in television production, too. He’s also found major success in the menswear industry.

Today, Seacrest is worth an estimated $410 million

Seacrest may have gotten his start hosting television, but since then, he’s become engrossed in the production side as well. He’s been the executive producer of Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve since 2006. He also currently produces Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is the most successful show E! Network has ever seen. And he has also produced all of the spinoff shows associated with the Kardashian family. Today, Seacrest is worth an estimated $410 million. He seems to take on a countless number of hosting jobs, production, and more, which have accumulated into an incredibly high net worth.
