Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, & Johnny Galecki Want HOW Much For Big Bang Theory Season Eight?!?!

Uh oh! Looks like we've got some drama!

Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, and Johnny Galecki, are set to drop a Big Bang on Warner Bros. The stars are planning to demand a higher salary for each episode of the eighth season of the No. 1 rated CBS comedy.

Currently, the trio each earn about $350,000 per episode PLUS a percentage of profits from the syndication of the show; a perk they obtained during their last negotiations.

That's not enough for all the laughs they provide, however, since they're going to ask for half a million PER EPISODE.

Sources report:

“They know the critical position Big Bang holds on CBS’ prime-time schedule and the only thing preventing them getting what they want would be a spectacular ratings demise this season. That isn’t about to happen anytime soon.”

This isn't the first time stars have banded together for a pay-raise. Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and Courteney Cox secured a $1 million per episode salary for their last season of Friends back in 2002.

With Big Bang Theory being nominated for eight Emmys, having 18.6 million viewers at the end of its sixth season, and earning a 6.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which gained the show the No.1 comedy title, we TOTALLY see this working out for the three.

Half a million per episode could buy a whole lot of coffee for Kaley and her hot new boyfriend Ryan Sweeting!

Let's hope they get what they want or how else would we satisfy our weekly geek fix?!?!

    I don't see why they shouldn't get half a million each. The show is successful because of them, they have huge ratings and are syndicated around the world. Do you know how much the network makes off them???



  2. 2

    They deserve it. They deserve a million..heck, 2 million each. It's one of the most successful shows on tv! CBS should have known it was coming when they paid Charlie Sheen a million per episode, or whatever outrageous amount that was.

    Kaley Cuoco is getting paid more than enough. I don't see why she should get paid more, her acting is mediocre & she only has a few scenes per episode which is more than enough.. As for Johny Galecki and Jim Parsons , they should get their raise. The show surrounds them mostly, and especially Jim. He has to talk and act differently from the rest of the cast. He deserves it.

    Re: reginaparis – I kinna agree with you. Kaley is just the girl next door in the show. The story doesn't revolve around her. She could easily be replaced by another girl. A better looking one perhaps and I'm sure Leonard will fall in love with her and the show will keep going like normal

    I think they should get it. There is precedent for them to push this to a successful conclusion.

    The entire cast should stick together and demand equal pay like the cast of friends did.

    Simon just got Critics Choice Best Supporting actor. Johnny's never got anything. Penny
    and Leonard are 6 years old and boring. Bernadette and Wolowitz are funnier now. Amy's
    character beat out Penny for Emmy nomination. Kunal brings in viewers from India and he
    now speaks. Simon and Kunal are part of the original 5. Are they getting this deal too, or
    are these 3 looking out for themselves!

    I don't know how they had to "negotiate" a percentage of the profits from Syndication. A deal was setup in 1983 that should still be in effect that anyone who does ANYTHING for Network or Cable Television gets paid when a repeat airs. When did that end making them need to negotiate for it?

    Give 'em a million! It's better than 'Friends' any day!

    Re: Suzie – Kaley is the BBT thought.The have to make the character the girl next door.If she was overly attractive she would not have been friends with them in the first place.

    The original premise of the show was a girl who firends smart but social akward and teaches about the real world.Also the big thing is ,if it not for penny howard will still be a disgusting sleze ball.

    Honestly ,since day one when I watch the show I knew what the show was trying to be.The reason why I watched the show form the begining was because of Kaley Couco.I loved her as bridget.

    Re: Heidi – Sorry but ,in the real world,the Entertainment world gets the cash.If you do not like it go watch paint dry.

    Actors and sports stars get money because we care about what they do more then what a average person does.

    Re: Tom – They are looking for them selves .they are the lead actors on the show.the lead actors make separate money then the supportive.

    It how the union disgned thir agreement with the studios.life it not fair for all actors in this business.

    Even if Simon got nominated with the award that does not mean he will get the raised.Also dumb nuts if a critic choice awards is an important reason to get a pay raise Kaley shout get double her salary since she one a crtics choice award for bet lead actress in a comady series.

    For Lee. I've been watching tv since Lucy was on and bet I know a hell of a lot more than
    you. You obviously love Kaley. I started watching BBT because of Penny and Leonard then
    realized it'd be 8 years before they got together. Quit watching. Enjoy Duck Dynasty.
    Duck Dynasty reruns are outperforming BBT reruns. Suck on those apples. CBS can do
    whatever they want. See Charlie Sheen!

    p.p.s. for Lee: If you read The Daily Mail, the most frequent comments are Penny and
    Leonard the ones they'd like to see replaced the most, only Sheldon is irreplaceable. By the way, I'm a college graduate and 20 year UAW member.

    Re: Tom Swanson – Really dumb ass ,Actualy I should have said I was a interested int he show when Kate(the first girl except penny) was played by Amanda Walsh.I bet you know that Penny was not the original girl.

    Re: Tom Swanson – oh bye the way,Charlie Sheen had problems with chuck Lorre not CBS.CBS does not work with their Contract ,the actors are signed with WB.They are signed to a studio deal not a network deal.Charlie sheen wanted to get out of Two and half men anyway.



  21. 21

    They are worth it! I love this show and this show is 10x's funnier that Charlie Sheen's lame show and he makes a pretty penny. I say give them whatever they want and keep this show going. I love nerds!

    Lee: Get an education and learn how to write. Trust me, you don't know more than me.
    I like Kaley, but I'm one of the 12 million who likes Duck Dynasty. Kiss my ass!

  23. Tom says – reply to this

    Lee: I wrote the same thing on The Daily Mail, and 20 approved. I don't think BBT fans
    want to let Kaley and Johnny go, and probably won't, but the show can survive without
    them. You should watch Duck Dynasty.
