The 10 Highest-Paid TV Casts of All Time

The “Big Bang Theory” cast is making BANK . . . and they have been for a while.  So, E! News was inspired to put together a list of ‘The 10 Highest-Paid TV Casts of All Time.’

It doesn’t really cover WHOLE casts, it’s basically just a rundown of the biggest negotiated paydays.  Here’s the list:

1.  Charlie Sheen.  He was the highest paid actor on TV during his “Two and a Half Men” era.  He earned $1.8 million per episode in his final season and then took home $2 million per episode of “Anger Management” after it passed its 100th episode.

2.  Ray Romano:  “Everybody Loves Raymond” paid him $1.8 million per episode.

3.  Kelsey Grammer.  He earned $1.6 million per episode of “Frasier”.

4.  Tim Allen.  He earned $1.25 million per episode for “Home Improvement”.

5.  Jerry Seinfeld.  He reportedly turned down $5 million an episode to continue “Seinfeld” after he wanted to end it.  But he didn’t miss out on much, because he still took home $1 million per episode by the end.

6.  Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt.  They earned $1 million per episode for “Mad About You”.

7.  Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow.  They got a 5,000% raise from the start of “Friends” to the final season when they each took home $1 million per episode.
