‘Big Bang Theory’ Stars May Lose Out On $100,000 Per Episode

Is the hit CBS show in trouble?

The Big Bang Theory is one of the most popular sitcoms on TV and its five original stars make a whopping $1 million per episode. But that all may change if the CBS show gets renewed for two more seasons.

Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar are all reportedly willing to deduct money from their salaries to help supporting actresses Mayim Bialik and Melissa Raunch make more money.

Variety reported that the five actors offered to take a pay cut of $100,000 per episode each so that Mayim and Melissa’s paycheck could grow to $450,000/episode from their $200,000/episode.
