Jim Parsons ranked highest-paid TV actor by ‘Forbes’ With $25 Million Take

Jim Parsons and his Big Bang Theory co-stars are running the table when it comes to TV star salaries.

The male members of the cast snagged the four top spots on Forbes’ list of highest-paid TV actors, leading with Parsons, who earned $25.5 million for playing Sheldon from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016.

The Big bang Theory CostarsJohnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar took the next three spots, netting $24 million, $22.5 million, and $22 million, respectively. NCIS’ Mark Harmon nabbed the fifth spot with $20 million for the CBS crime series.

According to Forbes, “our earnings estimates are based on data from Nielsen NLSN -0.15%, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers, lawyers and industry insiders”.

In 2014, Parsons ranked just ninth on the list but his earnings rocketed after he and fellow stars Johnny Galecki, who is second on the list, and Kaley Cuoco signed a new deal with CBS, reportedly worth $1 million an episode.
On the actress’ side, while Kaley Cuoco is hardly pinching pennies for playing Penny — she made $24.5 million, making her the second-highest earner on Big Bang— that wasn’t enough to overtake Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who made a staggering $43 million, thanks to multiple lucrative endorsement deals.2-1
