I would say that the TLD can have an impact on traffic targeting which is a core component of making some money. In that respect, I think most will agree that .com is still the King. Do you have content you want to target specifically to European traffic?
I wouldn't replace a .com that gets lots of US traffic with a .eu domain but a variation on the original site tailored to the needs of people in the EU might make sense.

|I was wondering does the Domain Name affect the amount of income? |
None whatsoever, I have a slew of names covering .asia/biz/com/co.uk/de/eu/in/info/it/net/ru/etc, the click values received all pertain to the location of the clicker and the advertisers targetting.
I have both high and low EPCs across all domains, in fact only this morning I have had a .co.uk get a $1.00 click from Belgium.
.eu is a gTLD and "supposedly" has the same clout as a .com, in my niche industry there are several .eu's ranked extremely well in Google.com and, by the way, deals for .eu have been around for quite some time at about $6.00.

I don't think its going to make a lot of difference, except that some TLDs don't much inspire trust - i.e. personally, I'm not a fan of .info or .biz because a metric ton of spam comes out of those domains, and I don't tend to trust them. So I'm less likely to visit them in the first place. So indirectly - maybe a little, but directly, no.

Okay thanks! Yea I have a few .Eu domains, and will be repalcing my .co.uk site with the new .eu due to my old domain a few years ago got attacked (The Hosting account) only for a few hours but those few hours reuined the rep of that domain causing some Antivirus programs to say the site is dangrouse when its not.. So I`m moving it over.

Do not expect your example.eu(s) to rank the same in Google.co.uk as your example.co.uk sites ... I can assure you that does not happen.
Why? I have absolutely no idea however experience and experiments over several years has proved this to me...that was a freebie:-)
Seemingly Google.com does rank .eu sites as a gTLD for English language SERPs but does not rank it within ccTLDs such as .co.uk/.fr/.de/.it/.etc even Google.co.uk which is...English!
Others' experiences may differ however I have stopped trying to get a .eu to rank anywhere other than Google.com
