The stars of a hit ABC show could see a big increase in their paychecks for the show’s third season, reports the New York Post.
The show is the sitcom "Modern Family." Cast members Julie Bowen, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Ty Burrell and Sofia Vergara were each earning $30,000 to $60,000 per episode last season, but under new deals could see that increase to six-figures for each episode, the story says, citing an article in Variety.
Co-star Ed O’Neill, who earned $95,000 per episode, could see his pay rise to $150,000 per episode, the story says. He has been getting a higher salary because of his past work on hit sitcoms such as "Married with Children," the piece notes.
