The child stars of ABC's hit comedy series Modern Family are currently finalizing a new deal with 20th Century Fox TV for a salary raise. After a month-long renegotiation, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Rico Rodriguez, and Nolan Gould could get much bigger paychecks, about tripling their current salaries to $70,000 an episode.
However, the salary negotiations for the older cast of Modern Family didn't go as smooth as the talks between the kids and 20th TV, even causing a table read boycott and nearly a lawsuit. An agreement was reached last month, with Julie Bowen, Sofia Vergara, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Eric Stonestreet going up from $65,000 to about $170,000 per episode.
Just one word from me: Wow.
