TRUTH !!
“Friends” ran for ten seasons. The show made stars out of Mathew Perry,
Matt LeBlanc, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer
Aniston.
The show’s success still pay huge dividends for the cast.
In 2015, Warner Brothers earned one Billion dollars from “Friends”. Of that
amount, 2 % – or $20 million, went to each of the stars. This amount is
typical of what these stars earned every year since 2004, when the show went
into syndication.
“Seinfeld”
Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld each make about $400 million per each
syndication cycle. Larry and Jerry taken the lion’s share of the royalties
because Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander don’t own
a stake in the show.
