Salary Negotiations Still Ongoing with ‘Big Bang’ Cast Just One Week Before Start of 4th Season Production

Salary negotiations are "still nowhere" with the main cast of CBS’ "The Big Bang Theory," just one week before the show is slated to begin production on its fourth season, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.

Producing studio Warner Bros. TV offered the show’s three stars, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco, $100,000 per episode, which is an increase from the roughly $60,000 per episode they had recently made, the article says.

But it’s also far below the $250,000 per episode many had thought they would receive, given the show’s ratings. The actors representatives didn’t respond to the offer and negotiations halted for three weeks.

"I hear it was WBTV that reached out to the actors and there has been some back-and-forth but no new money offer is on the table. I hear complicating things is the fact that Parsons has separated himself from the others as he reportedly pursues a bigger paycheck," Andreeva writes.

CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, July 28, 2010, that she’s optimistic "things will work out."


  1. It is cruel, you know, that music should be so lovely. It has the splendor of loneliness of sorrow: of vigor and independence. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and perpetual beauty of monotony.

  2. Great blog, appreciate the effort put into this post! Thanks! 😀

  3. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  4. Hey how are you doing? I just wanted to stop by and say that it’s been a pleasure reading your blog. I have bookmarked your website so that I can come back & read more in the future as well. plz do keep up the quality writing
