Report: ‘Big Bang Theory’ Stars Are Looking for Huge Raises

Jun 3, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The success of CBS’s "The Big Bang Theory" includes ratings, critical acclaim and a big syndication deal, and it’s the latter that has prompted the stars of the show to ask for raises, reports Forbes.com.

The three leads of the show, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons have reportedly asked for substantial increases in their per episode rate.

Currently they are getting $65,000 per show, the article says, adding that they’re each looking for a 285% bump to $250,000 per installment. If they make 22 episodes next year, that would be the difference between $1.4 million that they would each be paid for the season to $5.5 million each that they would be paid for the season.

Warner Brothers and CBS declined to comment on the situation with the actors.

  1. MY HUSBAND AND I ARE BIG FANS OF THE SHOW. WE THINK THE GANG SHOULD GO ON A ROAD TRIP AND HAVE TO STAY IN A HAUNTED HOUSE. SHELDON WOULD BE REALLY GOOD FOR THAT EPISODE. THANKS

  2. “Big Bang Theory” is the ONLY show on television I have watched completely since the beginning … without missing one single show.
    While the main characters are definitely doing well, I believe that the writer(s)of the show should be paid very well, too. They have done a fabulous job.

  3. Nice blog here! Also your website loads up fast! What host are you using? I wish my website loaded up as fast as yours lol
