(USA TODAY) Sofia Vergara isn't just one of the sexiest women on TV. She's one of the richest.

The bombshell Modern Family actress is reeling in the biggest paycheck - by far, says Forbes.

It's her second time topping the list, which covers June 2012 to June 2013.

Vergara's earnings over the past year? $30 million. The list takes into account pay, residuals and endorsements (Vergara has many lucrative deals including Sears, Diet Pepsi and Covergirl).

Other highlights from the list:

• Law & Order's Mariska Hargitay and The Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco share the No. 2 spot, both with earnings of $11 million.

• Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy, the Kardashians, talk show host Bethenny Frankel, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and a post-30 Rock Tina Fey also share the No. 4 title, each with earnings of $10 million.
