Big Bang Theory Stars Top List of Highest-Paid TV Actors


CBS’ popular sitcom The Big Bang Theory began its final season last month but the series’ main stars look to be receiving a lofty exit salary.

The earnings of several high-profile television actors has been released and the four main stars of the CBS series occupy the top spots as the highest earning actors on television today.

For the fourth year in a row, Jim Parsons is the highest paid actor on television earning $26.5 million this past year; his impressive salary augmented by endorsements and executive producing the spinoff series Young Sheldon. C0-star Johnny Galecki comes in at second place at $25 million while Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are tied at the third spot at $23.5 million each. The top figures come in even after all four actors lowered their salaries to $900,000 an episode to increase the salaries for co-stars Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch.

Also making the top ten list for the very first time is outgoing The Walking Dead star Andrew Lincoln who earned $11 million this past year. With co-star Norman Reedus reportedly negotiating a pay raise of his own, there’s a good chance he could crack the top ten himself for the first time.
