Vad tjänar Meredith, Ugly Betty och Lorelai?

Careerbuilder.com har gjort en lista över vad vissa TV-karaktärer skulle tjäna om de jobbade i den verkliga världen:

Denny Crane, "Boston Legal" -- Partner, Law Firm
Real-life median salary: $210,000.
Arthur Branch, "Law & Order" -- District Attorney
Real-life salary: The current New York County District Attorney makes $150,000.
Jim, "According to Jim" -- Owner, Construction Company
Real-life median salary: $73,000.
Lynette Scavo, "Desperate Housewives" -- Advertising Executive
Real-life median salary: $50,000.
Lorelai Gilmore, "Gilmore Girls" -- Inn Owner
Real-life median salary: $47,420.
It's tough to guess the income of an inn owner in a fictional town, but the annual median salary for a lodging manager gives us a starting point for imagining Lorelai's paycheck. Since she doesn't pay for her daughter Rory's college tuition (Rory's newly rich dad covered that), most of Lorelai's income appears to fuel her caffeine addiction.
Detective Lilly Rush, "Cold Case" -- Police Detective
Real-life median salary: $44,000.
Betty Suarez, "Ugly Betty" -- Executive Assistant
Real-life median salary: $37,810.
As an assistant in a notoriously low-paying media niche (fashion magazines), it's possible that Betty is taking home much less than the average salary for assistants. These fashion editorial positions do often come with perks like clothing allowances, but it's clear Betty prefers ponchos to Prada.
Dr. Meredith Grey, "Grey's Anatomy" -- Surgical Resident
Real-life median salary: $37,000.
As one of the rare medical residents with free board (she lives in her mother's house), Meredith doesn't appear to have a lot of expenses beyond her ever-expanding tab at the local dive bar. And, with (possible) medical school loans to repay, that's a seriously good thing.
Pam Beesly, "The Office" -- Receptionist
Real-life median salary: $23,120.

Men det är förstås på en höft. Här finns en lite äldre lista och enligt den skulle Betty Suarez tjäna 49 740 dollar/år.

Kul lista!

Men att Betty och Meredith skulle tjäna nästan lika mycket tycker jag är konstigt.
