It’s not fun if you don’t give anyone else a chance!

In what’s become a time-honored tradition, Forbes has released their annual report of letting us know that Sofia Vergara and Kaley Cuoco are still, indeed, rich.

The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family stars have been the highest paid actresses on television for the past five years straight… and 2016’s list out Wednesday is no different!

In fact, Sofia actually bumped her paycheck up to a whopping $43 MILLION from last year’s measly $28.5 million!!!

Now that number does include money from her sitcom and other business ventures — as opposed to Kaley’s $24.5 million listing from her TBBT salary alone — but that’s just a portion of the Top 15’s combined $208.5 million earnings!

So… who else is making it big on the small screen right now??

Ch-ch-check out the Top 15 highest paid TV actresses of 2016 (below)!!!

No. 1 — Sofia Vergara — $43M
