Here are the highest paid TV actors.
20. Pauley Perrette
Salary: $8,500,000Show: NCISRole: Abby ScoutAlthough $8.5 million isn’t exactly chump change, it’s telling that there’s such a huge difference between Pauley Perrette’s salary and that of her NCIS co-star, Mark Harmon. There are still plenty of equality strides to be made on a show that’s been around since before the iPhone and Facebook. BTW..i don't see it that way...Mark Harmon is the bigger star...

1. Sofia Vergara...The highest paid actress on tv..is a LATINA..NICE!
Salary: $41,500,000Show: Modern FamilyRole: Gloria Delgado-Pritchett
Sofia Vergara knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s been the top earning actress in TV for six years now, and it’s because of her businesswoman mindset: aside from her $1 million per episode salary with Modern Family, she’s got licensing deals with Rooms To Go, Avon, and SharkNinja as well as endorsements for Pepsi, CoverGirl, and Head & Shoulders.
Side note..the only way to get rich..is to have multiple streams of income..
