The Big Bang Theory cast at the 2014 TV NOW Awards

The Forbes list is out for the highest-paid TV actors of 2014-15 and, in no surprise, two shows dominate the rankings.

“The Big Bang Theory” makes up four of the Top 5. Not only that, but the total money earned by Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar makes up nearly half of the Top 15 total dollar amount.

“TBBT’s” ratings domination — which translates to huge paydays for its actors — also makes CBS the far-and-away winner. The Eye accounts for over half of the total list — eight out of 15. IN addition to “TBBT,” “NCIS” star Mark Harmon ranks right up there and “Two and a Half Men” co-stars Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher did alright for themselves as well. “The Mentalist’s” Simon Baker rounds out CBS’ entries.

ABC’s success with “Modern Family” puts them in second, with four entries on the list from the Emmy-winning sitcom, plus “Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey for five entries altogether.

In fact, there are only two actors on the list not from CBS or ABC, though one of them is definitely reaping the benefits from a CBS show. Ray Romano was most recently on “Parenthood,” but it is actually the sweet, sweet “Everybody Loves Raymond” syndication deal that most likely accounts for his high ranking on the list.

Finally, coming in at No. 15 is “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey. Apparently the one place broadcast still beats the online streaming service is in how much it pays its actors.

Notably, Nayyar is the only man of color on the list. The list of the highest paid TV actresses will be released by Forbes shortly; if last year’s list is any indication, it will be slightly more diverse. The 2014 list included Sofia Vergara, Mindy Kaling and Kerry Washington.
