It may seem like the big bucks come from starring in blockbuster films, but there’s a special place for standout roles in primetime television and the list of highest-paid TV actresses and actors for 2018 which was compiled by Forbes definitely tells that story.

The top earner in 2018 has been Modern Family star Sofia Vergara, who earned a whopping $42.5 million for her role on the show. To put that into perspective, Vergara netted $16 million more than the next person on the list.

Second-place honors went to Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons at $26.5 million, and he began a trend. The next two television stars on the list also came from Big Bang Theory with Johnny Galecki raking in a cool $25 million and Kaley Cuoco earning $24.5.

Rounding out the top five were the only other actors or actresses to earn more than $20 million in the year with — you guessed it — two Big Bang Theory stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, and Grey’s Anatomy standout Ellen Pompeo earning $23.5 million.
