25 Highest Paid Actors Per Episode

There was a time more than a decade ago when a group of six “Friends” was making $1 million per person, per episode. Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, and Joey were the highest paid actors on television, and they were worth every penny they earned. Their show was a smashing success, their stars were bright, and they were on fire. Friends was one of the best sitcoms of all time, and it was difficult to let them go. There are good – even great – sitcoms on television right now, but no one is making as much money as those friends. Find out who is making the most per episode now.
