Sofia Vergara Was 2017's Highest Paid TV Actress

It looks like Sheldon is on the receiving end of the “Bazinga” this time.

Sofia Vergara, the highest paid actress in television, out-earned Jim Parsons, the highest paid actor, by $14 million this year, according to Forbes — a unique accomplishment in the entertainment industry as male actors often capture higher salaries and higher paying roles.

One of the stars of ABC’s Modern Family, Vergara earned $41.5 million this year, while Parsons, better known as Sheldon on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, earned $27.5 million, according to rankings released by Forbes this week. Over the last several years, Vergara has easily out-earned all other television actors and actresses, largely due to a slew of endorsement deals for high-profile products like Head & Shoulders, Pepsi and CoverGirl, according to Forbes.
