I have to say, he's way overpaid. I like the guy as he seems like a very nice man, but he's not very good with the cue cards he must read, his ad libs are so-so at best, etc. The show would be every bit as successful with or without him, as long as the other host or hostess was at worst, capable. Again, nothing personal, but to me & many I know who watch AI, he is nothing special.

$15 million a year? I couldn't even begin to fathom what I would do with all that money! Well...only using a small fraction to pay for my education expenses. Other than that, no clue!
