The 50 Most Stylish TV Characters of All Time, Ranked has a list of the Top-earning Actors on TV Right Now. A little bit lower on the list than The Big Bang guys is Kevin Spacey, who earns $500,000 per episode for House of Cards, and Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo who earn $350,000 each for playing docs on Grey’s Anatomy. Mindy Kaling earns a solid $140,000 per episode of her show, and Julie Bowen is also rolling in the dough, snagging $190,000 for her work on Modern Family. And you thought Seinfeld made Julia Louis-Dreyfus rich? She makes $150,000 per ep of Veep, so you do the math.
