Last August, TV Guide writer William Keck tweeted, "New #tvguidemagazine reveals#greysanstomy salaries: #ellenpompeo#Patrickdempsey #sandraoh all earn whopping $350K per episode. Worth it?" Prior to Ellen, Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd) and Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang)'s Season 9 raise, the Holy Seattle Grace Trinity earned $275,000 per episode. Will the trio get another big pay bump for the new season?
Ellen got a major salary bump when she signed that two season contract that guarantees she — along with the other remaining original cast members Patrick and Sandra — will stick around at least through Season 10, so it looks like Ellen will most likely earn the same salary this year. Still, $350K per episode isn't exactly chump change!
What do you think: Is $350K a fair amount for the actors who bring your fave characters to life every week? Sound off in the comments!
