This Is Us is a ratings powerhouse for NBC and now the cast would like to be rewarded with a hefty pay raise.
An insider revealed that right after the season premiere, “The actors got together and demanded a huge pay increase. They are one of the highest-rated shows on TV. Now, they should be making some of the highest money.”
The veteran cast members like Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown earn about $80,000 an episode. That sounds pretty good, until you remember that Modern Family actors take home a million bucks per week, with only half the number of viewers.
