Howard and Raj negotiate together already and get significantly less than the other three. Then Bernadette and Amy also do this and get less than Howard and Raj.

The exact same thing happened with the Friends cast. It made headline news when they all asked to be paid 1million per episode and that must be 15 years ago. Surely Warners are used to this and it's seems implausible that the actors have to jump through hoops to get what they feel they are worth.

If the studio is making that sort of revenue off the show the salaries they pay should reflect that without the need for negotiation.

Granted but like any business they will try to pay the smallest amount they can. Say 24 episodes a series over 3 yrs (to be easy) so 72 mill over nxt 3 yrs. Set up for life?

The good news is after delaying the start of production by a week, the big 3 have now signed a contract (but we don't know for how much) so they can start work, Raj and Howard still haven't but that shouldn't take too long.

The increase in the syndication rights cut is surely the big thing, Seinfeld has made $400M from his

All of them have re-signed now. Apart from Amy and Bernadette who already had contracts for the new season.

The main three are indeed getting $1m per episode it seems. Though Raj and Howard are only getting just over $100k per episode apparently.

Production starts today for S8.

The Raj character isn't integral to the flow of the story any more so I can see why he wouldn't get as much. They could easily lose him and just replace him with the Stuart character and you'd have the same thing almost.

Same with Howard and Bernadette.

Sheldon is the screw that holds it together, without that character there wouldn't be a show.

All the characters are a bit tired really. They all supply the laughs expect for Raj, which i spend most of the time cringing when he's on screen. Leo and Penny have zero chemistry since Kaley Cuoco got married, they barely act as friends never-mind acting like they are in a relationship! And Sheldon is starting to get repetitive, the series as a whole needs a good shake up without retreading what happened in Friends

Yeah, good show, but I wouldn't think it's got more than two more seasons left in it, & then as the way it goes, we're probably never see the actors in anything again.

Well their new contracts are for 3 more seasons. I bet they get an 11th too.

If Raj&Howard are getting 10% of the big 3,I cant see this lasting any longer than 3 yrs. I wonder what its like between them all. I bet Bernadette&Amy which they would have held out to see if they could get more. If the BBT was just the big 3 then there would be no program but I suppose they could have said 'Raj goes back to India,Howard gets sent to Space Stn for 2yrs,Benie divorces him and Amy leaves Sheldon and goes to Washington and they replace them with new characters. The only reason BBT makes money is because people watch it and if they dont then it would be canned like any other US Series.
Having said all that if I could get someone to psy me $72 over next 3 yrs so I never have to work again I would!

If BBT could loose a main character then it could only be Bernie.
