The actress at the top of Forbes‘ list of the highest-paid TV actresses, which was released today, has been there before. In fact, Sofia Vergara, who stars on ABC’s “Modern Family,” has been No. 1 on the list for five consecutive years.

For the 12 months ending in June, the Colombian-born Vergara brought in $43 million — a 66% bump from a year ago. Most of it comes from endorsement and licensing deals.

No. 2 on the new list is Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory,” who earned $24.5 million. Mindy Kaling, creator and star of “The Mindy Project,” was third on the list with $15 million.

Ellen Pompeo of “Grey’s Anatomy” and Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order: SVU” tied for No. 4 on the list with $14.5 million each.
