"The Big Bang Theory" Stars Seeking $1 Million Per Episode?

Michael Yarish/Warner Bros.(LOS ANGELES) -- Will the three main stars of The Big Bang Theory seek more buck for their bang?

Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco currently earn a reported $325,000 per episode altogether.  However, they might ask for as much as $1 million per episode when their current contracts expire at the end of the upcoming season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cast members Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch have already cashed in: their salaries were recently bumped up from the $20,000 to $30,000 range to approximately $60,000 per episode.  The total will escalate to $100,000 per episode by the time their new deals run out.

Co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar reportedly will seek a pay increase sometime in the near future, too.

The seventh season of the hit CBS sitcom begins next Thursday night.
