No one needs that kind of money. If Kaley is feeling uncomfortable she could always give a lot of away by donating it to a few good causes. I have never watched the show and do not think I will start now. Not my kind of humor.

They should be comfortable with thier new contract. Sure it is a lot of money for acting. Too much? The producers/advertisers didn’t think so. Acting is a very volatile profession. This deal may have to last them a life time. Be happy for them, and the taxpayers who will reap a percentage of the wages.Would you deny the California Gold Miners their just rewards?

Good for them, I pray they are responsible with the money and enjoy their lives. They give up a lot of privacy being on TV and put on an entertaining show. It would be nice to make that much money, but I wouldn’t be willing to give up my privacy in order to earn it.

At least I don’t have to pay to park and pay for my seat to watch their show. Athletes make multi-millions and it is the public that pays them. If the powers that be want to pay their actors that much, it is the sponsors that suck up the cost.

plenty of straight men and women use butt plugs for their own pleasure… the fact that you think anal stimulation automatically means someone is homosexual makes you the stupid and ignorant one.

What bothers me the most is that people in our country are starving, school funding is being cut, people are unemployed, some don’t have health care coverage, houses are going into foreclosure, and children are living in poverty. I am glad to see our country has it’s priorities in place. Sooner or later this country will be down the tubes unless we wake up and refocus on what is important in the world. What a shame. I am not knocking the talent of these actors but we are dumping so much money into athletes, tv and movie personalities, and musicians. Just my 2 cents but to each his own.

HOW DO THE BIG BANG THEORY CELEBRITIES EARN MILLION DOLLARS PER EPISODE??? IN FACT WHY DO CELEBRITIES, MODELS AND ATHLETES GET PAID SO MUCH? WHAT THE HELL DO THEY DO WITH THESE AMOUNT OF MONEY????? WHY, JUST WHY???? I SERIOUSLY DO NOT BELIEVE THEY NEED SO MUCH MONEY FOR THE SUCH LITTLE THINGS THAT THEY DO. DO THEY ALL ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY NEED THOUSANDS AND MILLIONS OF PAYOUT? HAHAAHA THAT AMUSES ME

They do NOT deserve a million dollars an episode. I love TBBT but those 3 are just being greedy and selfish. Sorry, I just think that 1 million dollars an episode is ridiculous.

I just cannot believe some of the posts. It’s not like these actors walked up to the table and said give me a million dollars per episode. Their agents negotiated the numbers. If TIme Warner could not afford it they would not be paying it. If someone walked up to those who don’t agree and offered you 1 million dollars would you say “Oh that’s just too much money, I couldn’t take it” Of course you would. Yes I believe it’s excessive and the pay does create higher prices in the theaters but these people are talented funny, people who have a great gift. I hope that the other’s also go pay raises because I think Mayim, Kunal, Melissa and Melissa deserve them too. This is a team effort. If it were just the three of them there would not be many stories to tell. The other’s make the episodes complete. Stop complaining you guys, you would take the money too.

Friends’ cast earned 1 mil per episode on Season 9 and 10. I even think that they are underpaid until season 7. I’m not quite sure about the 1 mil for the last 3 seasons, but I think it’s reasonable

That’s just jealousy speaking. They are worth what the studios are willing to pay.

The never got that much. They did want to pay him 5 million per episode for an other season, but he didn’t want it because he wanted to end the show.

Wow I will never understand why actors get paid that much money. 1 million dollars an episode how about giving 1 million for each life doctors and nurses save that’s worth a million dollars… All that money can go to more important things.

My hat off to them. Acting is hard work.
If a person has never done it, they shouldn’t speak on it.
It’s hard repetitive work, under hot lights and sometimes terrible conditions.
I love the show and wish them well.

Although it’s excessive I LOVE this cast. Time Warner is a multi billion dollar company and if they will pay it, why not accept it. All of them have said they live doing the show so who cares what they make. It’s not coming out if my bank account. I will watch every epusode at least once and enjoy every minute Iof it
