Jim Parsons has been named the highest-earning TV actor of 2015.
The 'Big Bang Theory' star topped the Forbes list with earnings of $29 million for his role as Sheldon Cooper whilst his co-star Johnny Galecki - who plays Dr. Leonard Hofstadter - earned $27 million.
'NCIS' star Mark Harmon placed equally third on the list, alongside Jim's co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayya, as well as 'Two and a Half Men' actor Ashton Kutcher, with all of them earning $20 million each.
The news that 'The Big Bang Theory' stars dominate the list won't surprise fans as it was recently revealed the three main characters - played by Jim, Johnny and Kaley Cuoco - are reportedly being paid $1 million per episode for their part in the show.
A source said at the time: ''[They will get] larger pieces of the show, signing bonuses, production deals and advances towards the back-end.''
Bosses also reportedly spoke to Simon and Kunal to ensure their paycheques were brought more in line with that of the three main characters.
