Kaley Cuoco Royalties and Residuals

Kaley, Johnny Galecki, and Jim Parsons, the three major cast members, negotiated an arrangement where they would each own 1% of the show’s backend stock during the later seasons of the show when the cast was at the height of its strength. It made $1 billion in its first year of syndicated sales. That’s an additional $10,000,000 for the three of them in the first year. They will earn roughly $10 million annually for the next decade thanks to the syndicated sales, even though the sales are gradually declining.

In addition, because The Big Bang Theory is a Screen Performers Guild show, the actors are guaranteed 80% of their original salaries throughout the first year of reruns. It’s equivalent to taking two dips of 80% each. After the merger of SAG and AFRTRA, AFTRA’s residual standard was implemented, which pays performers a guest starring rate when episodes re-air. To put that in perspective, let’s say that the first time reruns of the show aired, Kaley made $800,000 per episode under SAG. She made $24 million upfront and another $19 million in residuals over time.
