Trade mag Variety described it as an “extraordinary gesture”
Before someone starts crying with emotion …
The five leads will only be losing $ 100,000 of their exorbitant $ 1 million per episode rate In 20-minute chunks of television.
If the pay was fair in 2014 … There would be no reduction in anyone’s salary.
Now let’s analyze who has a performance worth 1 million:
Mayim Bialik has been acclaimed for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler over the last eight years on the big bang theory, a show for which she holds a critics´choice award and numerous Emmy and SAG Award nominations.
Mayim has been a recurring presence in these Emmy articles over the years, and there´s a simple reason why: time and time again, she´s amazing as Amy Farrah Fowler. (Cartermatt.com)
Mayim Bialik´s Amy has developed into a layered character in her own right.
She´s funny, she makes a great double act with Jim Parsons, and she generally makes every episode better. (Denofgeek.com)
Mayim Bialik once again proved that she is the mvp of this season so far. (Theflickeringmyth.com)
Mayim Biali nailed her performance… (Ew.com)
One of the reasons we´ve had such passionate opinions about the story in season 9 is because Bialik has made us care so much for this character. (Cartermatt.com)
That heartbreaking scene in the thanksgiving episode where sheldon opts not get back together with her may be one of the single best performances on the show to date. (Cartermatt.com)
Mayim Bialik is fabulous for so many reasons, and she has really had an opportunity to shine in the big bang theory. (Tvfanatic.com)
The Sheldon-Amy relationship has been one of the best - if not the best- part of the big bang theory for several seasons now. Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik are always excellent.(Zap2it.com)
Sheldon and Amy finally “having coitus” on the big bang theory was perfectly executed.(Slate.com)
I’m sorry but, as a feminist, I believe that Mayim should be paid the same as Jim Parsons (Which is not the case for johnny and kaley).
After all, Shamy brings the viewers; We all know (
The Opening Night Excitation ). So without Mayim … Without shamy… Without viewers.
So it is not convenient for anyone (original cast, CBS or WB) that neither Mayim nor Melissa leaves the show.
Without Mayim and Melissa, the quotes were down. Incredible that they earn not even 10% what the four “stars” earn.
That simple. No extraordinarygesture here.
Extraordinary gesture would be give me 1 mill. I would deserve more than Galleck and Cuoco and Parsons !!!
