A new report reveals the salaries of the highest-paid actors and actresses in scripted TV series along with the annual salaries of reality, news and talk hosts.

The report by Variety shows the highest per-episode salary is $1 million, which is commanded by Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki, three stars of CBS’s hit comedy “The Big Bang Theory.” The next-highest-paid comedy star is way behind — Dwayne Johnson of HBO’s “Ballers” brings in $400,000 per episode.

On the drama side, Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel of the Netflix “Gilmore Girls” reboot top the list at $750,000 per episode.

The list of reality, news and talk hosts has Judge Judy Sheindlin as the clear front-runner with an estimated annual salary of $47 million, far outdistancing No. 2 Matt Lauer of NBC’s “Today” show with an estimated $22 million to $25 million.
