The only other show to negotiate such high salaries was FriendsThe core six actors of the Friends ensemble famously negotiated together in 2002 to get a whopping 1 million dollars each per episode. However, TBBT is now surpassing Friends in the number of seasons, so their total salary amounts overall will definitely surpass their famous rivals.
