These days, there are more shows than you can even count.
With all the different networks and means of binging on TV, it's an embarrassment of riches for the fans ... and for the actors and actresses.
Just as the sheer number of television programs grows by the year, the bank accounts of the stars are growing too. By, like, a lot.
We pay a pretty penny for our entertainment, apparently. Or many pennies. Millions upon millions of them if you want to get technical.
Okay, so technically advertisers and networks pay those pennies, but who's paying the networks and buying the products, you know?
When the principal cast of The Big Bang Theory negotiated $1 million per episode in the not so distant past, that dominated headlines.
And rightfully so. But remarkably enough, Kaley, Johnny and Jim didn't even top the list of the 35 highest paid TV stars of 2015.
Who does? Proceed to find out. It's a shocker, for sure ...
Tatiana Maslany plays something like 7? 8? characters on Orphan Black and only makes $50,000 per episode. She should get at least $50,000 per character (because she's effing amazing!) but we're pretty sure her half a million a season paycheck doesn't hurt her feels.
Sharon Osbourne raked in $1 million for The Talk. That's a lot, for sure, and it doesn't take into account any money she might bring in from appearances and judging stints on other shows.
Star of The Americans, Keri Russell, banked a cool $100,000 per episode for the spy drama. In a 13-episode season, that brought her a cool $1.3 million a year.
Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, and Lea Michele
Before Glee ended, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, and Lea Michele were each bringing home $1.6 million a season. That's $80,000 an episode for those of you who hate math.
Tyrion Lannister, aka Peter Dinklage, has the highest salary of any Game of Thrones cast member. He's raking in $150,000 an episode for a total of $1.9 million a season. If he's the next Jon Snow, (read: killed off) maybe this is why.
Scandal's Kerry Washington is the ONLY cast member to make this list. In 2015, she was paid $80,000 an episode (a straight $2 million) to bring Olivia Pope to life.
