Jim Parsons has to say a ton of science-y words he can't pronounce playing Sheldon Cooper every week on The Big Bang Theory, but never say he wasn't appropriately compensated!
The Emmy-winner managed to top Forbes' list of highest-paid TV actors for 2016 for another consecutive year, taking in a cool $25.5 million earnings for playing the neurotic scientist on the CBS comedy.
But Parsons wasn't the only BBT star to make the list — calculated from June 1, 2015 to June 1, 2016 — as the next three spots were taken by three fellow cast members.
Johnny Galecki took second with $24 million, Simon Helberg took third with $22.5 mil, and Kunal Nayyar landed fourth place with $22 mil!
Though, like always, some names are a bit surprising to see on the list. (What are you doing here, Ray Romano?)
Ch-ch-check out the full list (below) to see the 15 top male earners in television!
Now that Twin Peaks is finally out of development hell, David Lynch is pulling out all the stops for his long-awaited revival series!
And by all the stops, we mean all the STARS!
Showtime revealed the cast members for the crime drama reboot, and in addition to several returning actors, we can expect a slew of A-list newcomers heading to the mysterious town!
In addition to series lead Kyle MacLachlan returning, actors from the original series set to reprise their roles are David Duchovny, Alicia Witt, David Patrick Kelly, and Harry Dean Stanton!
But not everyone in the OG cast is set to return — original cast members not featured on the cast list include Lara Flynn Boyle and Piper Laurie…
Oh well, who needs Donna Hayward or Catherine Martell with all that fresh meat! LOLz!
The new series, which will pick up decades after the original 1991 run, and will premiere sometime in 2017!
Ch-ch-check out the ENTIRE cast list (below)!
After being blessed with the X-Files miniseries reboot, fans of the hit Sci-Fi series are getting more than they could have ever imagined with an entire new chapter of Mulder and Scully's story!
According to Entertainment Weekly, the X-Files: Origins book series — a pair of young adult novels following a 15-year-old Dana Scully and a 17-year-old Fox Mulder — is hitting shelves soon!
The two novels will be set in the spring of 1979, and will follow the teens as they experience life changing events that ultimately lead them to become the agents on the cult TV show.
Mulder's story Agent of Chaos will be written by Beautiful Creatures author Kami Garcia, and Scully's story Devil's Advocate will be penned by bestselling horror novelist Jonathan Maberry!
Now, if we've learned anything from how Hollywood operates, there's a good chance these YA novels will wind up being adapted into some form of series!
Sure, we're getting WAY ahead of ourselves and jumping to several conclusions, but wouldn't that be exactly what Spooky Mulder would do in this situation?
Check out his interview (below) and look out for Agent of Chaos and Devil's Advocate set to be published in January 2017!
Scully and Mulder are on the case… and so is the rest of America!
If you're one of the millions of people who tuned in to watch the Panthers and Broncos crush the Cardinals and Patriots on Sunday, then you probably also noticed that FOX was heavily promoting the return of The X-Files shortly after the games.
The classic Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny sci-fi series went off the air way back in 2002 when network television ratings were at an all-time high… which is why we're super shocked by how many people actually tuned in for the mini-series' premiere!
Believe it or not, the reboot's debut managed to pull in 16.19 million viewers — that's a higher rating than what the final two seasons of the original series were able to achieve!
But while the numbers are impressive, it's important to note that the NFL lead-in of 45.74 million probably helped with the huge viewership, so it should be interesting to see if Monday's regular time slot has similar success.
Did U enjoy The X-Files' first return to TV in 14 years??

Kristen Stewart isn't afraid to ruffle a few feathers!
In Hollywood, one of the most controversial topics today is gender equality. As we reported, readers were shocked when they learned that The X-Files tried to pay Gillian Anderson half of what they offered David Duchovny!
Recently, KStew visited the Variety Studio in Sundance to promote her new film Certain Women, and was asked about the issue. Let's just say her response may surprise you.
First, the 25-year-old concedes that she is a highly paid, in-demand actress who hasn't experienced the same prejudices that other thespians have faced.
After over ten long years, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were back on primetime TV Sunday night when The X-Files revival premiered on FOX!
While the premiere episode lacked some of the fire of the original series, the reboot episode teased a ton of conspiracies, action, and even supposedly dead characters to come!
The episode, titled My Struggle, starts with David Duchovny's groggy voice-over accompanied with images of memorable mutants from the show — including an inbred Peacock brother, the brain-sucking Rob Roberts, and the grotesque flukeman!
After a flashback scene to an alien encounter in 1947, we catch up with former agent Scully (Gillian Anderson) who is now
This is seriously not okay!
The X-Files isn't the first classic series to get a second life on TV, so you'd think the producers and network would know better than to try and pull some gender wage gap shenanigans on their stars.
Well… you'd be wrong.
As it turns out, Gillian Anderson was offered only half of what David Duchovny was initially going to make for being part of FOX's six-part reboot!
Gillian spoke to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month about being a victim of the gender wage-gap, saying:
