Sherri Shepherd -- 'The View' Is Not a Heavy Workload

Sherri Shepherd might have the cushiest gig in America -- 'cause according to legal docs she just filed, Sherri only has to work 16 hours a week on "The View" ... and makes some serious bank!

Shepherd just filed an income declaration in her ongoing divorce from husband Jeff Tarpley ... and in the docs, Sherri lists that she takes home $54,767 a month ... and says she only works 16 hours a week -- that works out to about $855 per hour!

Sounds like a sweet deal ... 'til you remember she has to sit next to Elisabeth Hasselbeck the whole time.
