Who's most underpaid, based on this list? I'd say Jim Parsons (Big Bang Theory) who didn't make the list at $40,000/episode.

As I said in the instructions, I can't believe this is being a comprehensive list. I can't see any of the female stars of Brothers and Sisters on the list and I really can't see Sally Field earning less than Anna Paquin. Nor can I see Patricia Arquette of Medium not making the list. And who knows how much Seth McFarlane makes for Family Guy/American Dad? But I can only go with the numbers provided on the linked article.

I could definitely be wrong, but I believe that the entire main voice cast of The Simpsons makes around $400,000 per episode, so Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Harry Shearer, and Hank Azaria should all be on the TV Guide list. I suppose though that the article would be a little bit less interesting if they had six people from the same show making the same amount of money on it.

@fraud: Yeah, that makes sense to me too.
Game note: I've added the originating networks to the clues (but not the show titles which I think would be too much of a giveaway).

I really think Hugh Laurie deserves more money for being House. He's great at that role.

Ellen Pompeo makes less than a sixth of what Dempsey does?
