Who are the Highest Paid Actors in TV?
*NOTE* The list was also released in August, 2015, I know I’m a bit behind, however when the new list comes out this year, I will post it.
TV is big bucks these days and some of the top stars are earning some serious cash.
Check out the top 15 male earners in 2015 on TV.
1. Jim Parsons: $29 million (The Big Bang Theory)
2. Johnny Galecki: $27 million (The Big Bang Theory)
3. Mark Harmon: $20 million (NCIS)
3. Simon Helberg: $20 million (The Big Bang Theory)

If you have a look at the list, 11 of the 15 actors are from comedies while only 4 are from dramas, so it seems laughs = big bucks in Hollywood.
Come back tomorrow for a list of the top 15 Actresses! (Again, a VERY late post)
The list also includes endorsements and side-gigs.
