“Big Bang Theory” Salary Hang Up: Cast Holds Out for More Money

Posted Monday August 4, 2014 1:20 PM GMT

It’s one of the most popular sitcoms in recent memory, but “The Big Bang Theory” is hitting a delay over cast salaries.

Jonathan Galecki, Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons are all holding out for more money, demanding that their $350,000 per episode paycheck be increased to a cool $1 million for each show.

Furthermore, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are looking to go from $100,000 per episode to $400,000.

Of course, the CBS network isn’t jumping to meet the collective demands of the actors, though given the show’s ratings it’s likely the talent will be appeased before the delay goes much longer.
