The two actresses who joined the show in season 3 reportedly earn around $200 000 per episode. With the agreed pay cut from the lead actors, this means that $500 000 will be available to raise the salaries of Bialik and Rauch. This could mean that they will now earn up to $450 000 per episode.

According to Variety, Bialik and Rauch’s reps are reportedly asking for them to get the same pay as the lead actors.
