On Wednesday, Forbes released its annual list of the world's highest-paid TV Actresses and leading the pack for the fifth year in a row is none other than the Modern Family star.
The 44-year-old Colombian-American actress brought home a whooping $43 million before management fees and taxes, but not all came from her hit TV show. Vergara has an impressive array of endorsement deals as well as her line of products.
Runner-up Kaley Cuoco, 30, was listed at $24.5 million with almost all of that being from playing her beloved character Penny on CBS' The Big Bang Theory.
Mindy Kaling, 37, came up third with $15 million, followed by a tie for fourth place between Ellen Pompeo, 46, and Mariska Hargitay, 52, who both made $14.5 million.
Also among this year's list are three newcomers: Castle star Stana Katic (No. 7), Priyanka Chopra (No. 8) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (No. 13).
The 15 highest-paid female stars of the small screen made a combined $208.5 million, according to Forbes – $43.5 more than last year's combined total of $165 million.
