TV Stars With Paychecks Much Bigger Than Yours


Do you ever get jealous of people that make more money than you? Do you spend the last days of each month wondering how you’ll make ends meet? Are you purposefully holding off on buying something for yourself because you might need the money later?


Let’s take a look at some people that don’t have any of those problems!



Pretty Much Everyone In the Big Bang Theory
Especially Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki. They make a whopping $900,000 per episode. Now calculate how much you make in a year and feel bad about yourself.



Game of Thrones
Now that all the red herrings are dead, whoever’s left and has a significant role in the story takes home a lovely $500,000 per episode. Boom.

Dwayne Johnson in Ballers
This wrestler-turned-actor-turned-businessman has been spreading his creative wings and his cooperation with HBO is currently landing him $650,000 per episode. That’s not too bad, by any means.

The F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Cast
Taking into account how much more money was worth back then (it’s called inflation, look it up), their one million dollars per episode would be even more ridiculous now. And yes, they all got this much for the last two seasons. All six of them. That’s six million dollars per episode, for the actors alone.

Ted Danson in Cheers
One of the most legendary characters of one of the most legendary sitcoms of all time? Yeah, he made a whopping $450,000 per episode. This was back in the late eighties and early nineties, by the way.

The Cast From Big Little Lies
More specifically: Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. They get a mind-blowing one million dollars per episode. And the show is only in its second season! If this goes on for a while, it’s fair to assume this number could increase even more.

Ellen Pompeo in Grey’s Anatomy
Well, in all fairness, if your show can perform consistently after five billion years like Grey’s Anatomy has, you deserve every part of your $575,000 per episode.
