19. Mariska Hargitay
As Olivia on Law & Order: SVU, Hargitay takes home $400,000 per episode and $8 million annually. She's not in the hot seat!
21. Jon Cryer
Cryer isn't crying over his role as Alan on Two and a Half Men, although this is enough to make you cry: He's raked in $650,000 per episode for an annual salary of $14.3 million by the time the show faded to black for the last time!
23. Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki
Oh yes. This trio gets a Big Bang for their buck as Sheldon, Penny and Leonard, taking home $1 million per episode EACH and an annual salary of $24 million for TBBT. Theorize on THAT!
