Sofia Vergara: TV's Highest Paid Actress

Sofia Vergara

Starring on Modern Family has paved the way for Sofia Vergara to land a bunch of endorsement deals, which consequently make her the highest-paid television actress for the second year in a row. From June 2012 to June 2013, the actress raked in $30 million.

Following the Latin beauty is The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco, who made $11 million this year, mostly in part to the $300,000 per episode she takes in from the hit CBS comedy. Tied in the number two spot is Mariska Hargitay, which is no surprise, considering her show, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, is in its 15th season.

The number four spot holds several stars who all made $10 million this year, including the Kardashian sisters, who are considered actresses on the list, although their television show is “reality.” Joining them are Melissa McCarthy, Ellen Pompeo, Tina Fey and Bethenny Frankel.
