See Which Actress Makes More Money Than Any Male Actor on TV

Erin Fitzpatrick

Sofia Vergara is breaking glass ceilings. According to the latest report from Forbes, she's officially the highest paid TV actress, and raked in a whopping $43 million USD from June 2015 to June 2016. But it gets even better: That figure is also more than any male TV actor made in the same time period. How impressive is that? 

Forbes notes that it's not just her Modern Family role that's bringing in the dough—she can also thank her endorsement and licensing deals, which include shampoo brand Head and Shoulders. Vergara is so ahead of the pack that the number two woman on the list, Kaley Cuoco, earns half of what she does. Mindy Kaling, Ellen Pompeo, Mariska Hargitay, and Kerry Washington round out the top six on the list. Head over to Forbes to see who else made the cut.
