There’s a lot of money being talked about here, a list that you’re not being included on. This list can expose you to a cold dose of reality. There are people that act on television for a living who make exorbitant salaries. Many of the shows that these actresses star in aren’t even any good. But that makes no difference. It’s about how many people watch. Not how good your performance is. Ever since the cast of Friends banded together and got that Friends money, TV sitcoms and procedural crime shows have been dishing out coin like it’s going out of style.
Though the ratings and audiences of many of the shows on this list drop off with time, it’s longevity that pays for the most part. You’ll notice that almost every one of the stars on this list are cast members of a show that has been around for a long time, probably too long if you ask most people. But, it doesn’t really matter how good a show is after about five seasons, does it? By that point, you’ve invested too many hours into a television world.
You must trek on and see the ending. Most of us will literally watch anything once we’ve become that involved. And millions of us do, night after night. We’re probably laughing at jokes that aren’t even funny and being shocked at plotlines that have been redone four different times, but we don’t care. Just put something familiar in front us and we’ll watch it. Take our time and our money, actresses. You’ve kind of earned it. Here are the highest paid actresses on TV in 2016.
