Big Bang Theory Stars Want A 285% Raise
    The cast of The Big Bang Theory are looking for a 285% wage rise, according to Forbes. This rise would take them from the relatively low (considering the success of the show) wage of $65,000 per episode to $250,000. The new wage would still be significantly less than Charlie Sheen, for example, earns per episode of Two and a Half Men. Sheen is now thought to be receiving upwards of $1.5m for each episode of Men.

Television Critics Association Awards
    The nominations for the Television Critics Association Awards have been announced today. The Big Bang Theory is nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series and Jim Parsons for Individual achievement in comedy. The show will go up against Modern Family, Glee, Party Down and Parks and Recreation. Jim Parsons faces competition from Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet (both Modern Family), Jane Lynch (Glee) and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation). Big Bang and Parsons both won in their respective categories at the awards last year. The ceremony will take place on July 31st.
