    Info Big Bang Theory assured for another three years after last minute pay negotiations..

    They had agreed to extending the series but pay was a sticking point it seems
    Not a bad salary it has to be said but it's made me happy..

    Big Bang Theory is one of my favourite shows, but $1m per episode is ludicrous money.

    Yes I remember the same outcry when the friends cast won an increase
    to $300,000 per episode that was an hour show I believe but Big Bang is half of that

    Mind you, what do world class footballers get?

    Last episode of friends was aired 10 years ago now - so salaries to triple in a decade isn't THAT drastic?!

    I must be one of the few that don't find this funny ? Any show that uses canned laughter to tell me when it's supposed to be funny crap .. It's just a modern day friends that was crap as well

    it may well be filmed in front of live audience but it still has canned laughter to tell me it's funny when some one pops up from behind a couch and the likes

    I do like the actual Science jokes they do throw in - apparently they do have a couple of scientist on board to verify what they are saying is factual, still it is just a throw away series so being paid more then anybody else does seem a little excessive.

    By the last series of Friends they were on $1 million per episode which is what the 3 main Big Bang actors are now on but for a a show half the length of Friends per episode. The last series of Friends actually cost more to make than they got back on initial ad revenue but as it's repeated across the planet so frequently the syndication payments mean the producers still make a killing.

    The Big Bang cast have rather unsurprisingly had increased share of syndication rights included in the new contracts.

    Actually about 22 minutes according to the stats, not a lot but given the margin quite enough. Besides I've never subscribed to the "Never mind the quality feel the width" treatment. Of course it's way too much money but I for one am very glad the show is continuing, lets hope the standards don't drop like they did with Friends, Cheers, Roseanne et al
