Parsons, fellow 'Big Bang' actors top Forbes' best-paid list

NEW YORK (AP) — "The Big Bang Theory" does a bang-up job of making its stars rich.

The CBS comedy claims TV's four best-paid actors, according to the annual list released Thursday by Forbes .

Jim Parsons led with a $25.5 million take between June 2015 and this June, Forbes said, followed by cast-mates Johnny Galecki ($24 million), Simon Helberg ($22.5 million) and Kunal Nayyar ($22 million).

In fifth place: Mark Harmon, star of CBS' drama "NCIS," was paid $20 million (as with all these actors, before management fees and taxes).
