Big Bang Bonus

"The Big Bang Theory" actresses Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik are seeking bumps in pay for their work.

The two earn significantly less than the original five cast members-Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg.

Rauch and Bialik sit in the $200,000 per episode range and the other five are closer to one-million an episode.

In contract renewal talks, the original cast agreed to take a $100,000 cut in salary for the next two seasons to free up $500,000 to give to Rauch and Bialik.

This could give the two almost $21 million for the two-year, 48 episode deal.
