They may be on the small screen, but there’s nothing small about their paychecks: The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara top this year’s list of the highest-paid actors and actresses on TV.
The annual list, compiled by Forbes magazine, tracks earnings from June 2015 to June 2016 and adds in each actor’s endorsements along with their per-episode salaries. That explains why Vergara leads all TV actors, male or female, with a whopping $43 million, thanks to lucrative ad campaigns (like Head & Shoulders shampoo) and licensing deals. Parsons’ Big Bang co-star Kaley Cuoco lands in second place among actresses, »
Tony Hale shows up in not one but two of Rolling Stone's recent 100 Greatest TV Shows list – as the paralyzingly timid Byron "Buster" Bluth on Arrested Development, and as henpecked Potus bag man Gary on Veep. The actor recently stopped by the Rolling Stone offices for an exclusive video interview in which he discusses his tenure on both programs and the difficulties of keeping a straight face around Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
"To be on two shows that I think are funny, and I love the material, and I love seeing what they come up with, »
Forbes has released its list of the highest paid actors on television, with The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons topping the male list ahead of co-stars Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar with earnings of $25.5 million over the past year. And while Kaley Cuoco’s $1 million-per-episode deal may be the highest on television for any actress, her earnings pale in comparison with that of Sofia Vergara, with the Modern Family star pulling in a whopping $43 million thanks to the ABC show and her various endorsements.

“It’s post-presidency,” he continued. “With that comes a lot of breaking down and anxiety [for Selina & Co.]… Gary is probably losing his mind.”
On the plus side, plotwise, “it’s kind of opening up a whole new world of ‘What do these people do after they were president of the United States?'” suggested the Emmy-nominated actor. »
When all was said and done and accepted, the 68th annual Primetime Emmy Awards went down easy, with voters serving up a mix of shoo-ins and surprises among the winners.
But the TV business is strapping in for a much wilder ride next year, when the playing field will be wide open, probably even more crowded, extremely diverse, and perhaps most significantly, free of dragons.
The potential for newbies to break through with nominations or wins next year is strong now that HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is sitting out the 2017 race. HBO has opted, at the behest of the show’s producers, to push the drama’s seventh season premiere to next summer, just outside of the 2016-17 eligibility window. The sidelining of the show that has dominated Emmy nominations and wins for the past two years will open up a vacuum that plenty of worthy contenders will fight to fill.

Jimmy Kimmel did a terrific job hosting the 68th annual Emmys on Sunday, whether or not the TV ratings reflect the effort. ABC’s Emmys kicked off with a fairly funny cold open, one that included cameos by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tony Hale, Jeb Bush, James Corden and the “Modern Family” cast, among others. With so many moving parts, there were bound to be bloopers — or as Kimmel later called them, “Boners and Boo-Boos.” The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host unveiled a reel of such screw-ups Monday night back on his own talk show, when he barely had a voice left.

The clip featured appearances from the casts of Veep and Modern Family alongside Late Late Show host James Corden and surprise Emmy breakout star Jeb Bush. Among the best moments were Kimmel realizing a button on his tuxedo had popped and blowing his cues during the Wham! musical number with Corden. Elsewhere, Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale got disconcertingly close, while a mishap »
“We’re very tired,” McNearney told IndieWire on Monday morning. “We had material due at 8:30 this morning, for tonight’s monologue. We were still at the party at 3:30 in the morning. I kept looking at my phone going, “All right, material is due in five hours… Ok, now it’s due in four hours…”
Added Ricker: “I considered wearing sweat pants to work today.”
Though groggy, McNearney and Ricker were enthusiastic about the reaction to Sunday night’s awards telecast, and the generally high marks that Jimmy Kimmel received as host.
“I’m hyper critical of these things,” said McNearney, who is also married to Kimmel. “After Jimmy does anything, it sounds terrible, but I will evaluate and re-evaluate everything — ‘Oh, »

Last night was the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, where the television academy takes the time to recognize some of the greatest accomplishments in the industry for the past season. Not surprisingly, the show that came out on top this year was none other than Game of Thrones, a show that seemingly only gets stronger and stronger as time goes on (despite the absence of source material at this point).
This also marked the year that Game of Thrones surpassed Frasier for the record total of Emmys won during a show run. Frasier previously held the record with 37 wins, and with two seasons left, Game of Thrones has secured the title with 38 wins, a record it's sure to barrel over over the course of the next couple seasons.
Below is the list of nominees and winners for several major categories at this year's Emmys!

By now television fans have been fully regaled of all the best moments from last night's Emmys. Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown and Courtney B. Vance helped The People v. O.J. Simpson to dominate the awards. Julia Louis-Dreyfus gave an incredibly moving speech. The kids from Stranger Things performed a dance to "Uptown Funk" and handed out peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on bicycles. All in all the event was one of the more successful Emmy Awards in recent history. But there's a huge part of the story that the public isn't hearing. We're talking about all of the unsung heroes of the night. Those brave souls lurking in the shadows, making everything come »

But after a bleepworthy discussion about the way Kyle Bornheimer “just ‘manned’ all over the place” as Jack, the actress let slip that “I think he might” reappear on the Hulu dramedy.
“We’re gonna see a lot more of Leon, too,” she added.

Stars—they're just like us. They mingle, they charge their cell phones in the bathroom and they love a glass of wine during a show. Such was the case Sunday night behind the scenes of the 2016 Emmy Awards, where television's most revered gathered for a chance to bring home one of those gilded winged statues once again. While binge-watching pros gathered on their sofas at home to find out if Julia Louis-Dreyfus would take home her fifth Emmy in a row (spoiler alert: she did) or if Veep would break Modern Family's winning streak (spoiler alert: it did), famous faces were busy filing into the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles (some just minutes before the broadcast began) to »
From Jimmy Kimmel's opening monologue to Julia Louis-Dreyfus' acceptance speech, Trump jokes were all the rage at the 2016 Emmys on Sunday night. Kimmel, who served as host of the awards show, got the ball rolling by singling out The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett as the man who created the monster. "Many have asked, 'Who is to blame for Donald Trump, the Donald Trump phenomenon?' I'll tell you who, because he's sitting right there. Mark Burnett, the man who brought us Celebrity Apprentice. "Thanks to Mark Burnett, we don't have to watch reality shows anymore because we're living in one, »

Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus scored her record-breaking fifth consecutive Emmy last night for her portrayal of unhinged politico Selina Meyer and make no mistake — she deserved it. In the HBO comedy’s fifth season, the Seinfeld vet revealed new layers of her hilariously narcissistic, acid-tongued alter ego. This was particularly the case in “Mother,” an episode that found Selina at her most relatable as she struggled to process the imminent death of her mom — a woman she loathed.

I ran into Republican pollster Frank Luntz at the HBO party after the Emmy ceremony at the sprawling Pacific Design Center. A few feet away, “Veep” winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus was fending off a crush of well-wishers while HBO chief Richard Plepler had just come from finding his lost cellphone. What’s going to happen? a group of eager Hollywood acolytes wanted Luntz to tell them. Would Hillary Clinton manage a win? Luntz was wearing a burgundy vest and his signature Prince Valiant hairstyle, and shook his head sagely. “She’s going to win, but I can’t say anymore that it’s for certain, »

Confession: I did not know Marti Noxon had completely abandoned Lifetime’s UnREAL after co-writing the Season 2 premiere when I interviewed her Sunday evening on the Emmys red carpet. I had read the reports of creative friction between her and fellow co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, but I assumed — mistakenly so, it turns out — that she had maintained at least a tangential involvement in the series.
That misunderstanding led to a somewhat awkward moment toward the end of our brief Q&A, wherein I lightly grilled Noxon about the »
Now there's something you don't see too often — an Emmy night that actually makes good television. The Emmys are usually one of those pop-culture Zen koans: Why is an award show for TV such a painful little hate-watch? But this year's model was easily the most entertaining Emmy bash since Conan O'Brien hosted in 2008, a welcome change after last year's debacle. Jimmy Kimmel kept things moving and got the whole event done and dusted in three hours — with a minute or two to spare, actually. Yes, there was still plenty »
On Sunday night, Julia Louis-Dreyfus joined the Emmy Awards winners list and accepted her fifth consecutive award. The actress, of course, won best lead actress in a comedy for her endlessly entertaining role on Veep. And, well, while it may not have been Louis-Dreyfus's first time at the mic, this year's speech was extra emotional. In the speech, she dedicated the award to her father, who, she revealed, just passed away this past Friday. Watch her full, tearful speech above.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus used her Emmy acceptance speech Sunday to praise her late father, who died Friday, and some people on Twitter apparently thought she meant actor Richard Dreyfuss, rather than billionaire poet William Louis-Dreyfus. Unlike death hoaxes and cases of erroneous fatality reporting where the person in question is not on Twitter, this particular Internet freakout about the star of “Mr. Holland’s Opus” was quickly put to bed thanks to the crack investigating teams of various media outlets. I’m actually not Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ father. But I really appreciate all the concerned tweets. https://t.co/4heUxufeOa – Richard Dreyfuss »
