The list of the most costly TV actors has been released by Forbes for 2016. It is not surprising at all that Sitcom Stars are dominated it namely, the actors of Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory. Among four of the top 6 slots have been nabbed by Big Bang. The pack is led by Jim Parsons who is earning twenty-nine million dollar. The leader of the last year Ashton Kutcher was overtaken by him along with the co-star of Big Bang, Johnny Galecki. Approximately twenty million dollar is earning by Kutcher and twenty-seven million dollar by Galecki.
All these observation are not surprising. This is mainly because the ongoing contract negotiations of the last year before Kaley Cuoco, Galecki and Parsons landed deals for one million dollar per episode.
The four leading men of Modern Family make it into the top 10 earners. Also, the cut is made by Patrick Dempsey, Kelvin Spacey and Mark Harmon when the drama becomes over weighted.

Remember, paydays are measured for providing ranks to these TV actors before taking management fees and taxes. This is according to the movie star list of Forbes. The sign-gigs and endorsement deals are included by the tally like Ty Burrell’s promotional deal with Verizon and Parson’s current stint on Broadway.
