Because Kutcher initially only negotiated a one-year deal with Warner Bros. TV, the studio entered talks with him to extend his stay into next year. Reportedly, Kutcher’s new salary is in the $700,000 per episode range. Cryer makes slightly less than that, and Jones makes about $300,000 per show. Jones, who turned 18 in October, was for a time the highest paid minor on television.
This week, the show aired its landmark 200th episode, which featured Jason Alexander as a guest star, playing Alan’s doctor. The finale airs this Monday at 9 p.m. EST.
