Zach Braff Signs on for Another Year of Scrubs

Zach Braff I’m a huge Scrubs fan, so this news made my day. Zach Braff has just finished negotiating a payraise for a seventh season, so it looks like a pretty safe bet that the show will return next year. Now I know, some fans of the show have not been as entertained as much as in years’ past, but it is still a solid show with excellent writing and characters. Compared to some of the drivel on TV, I think this show still continues to bring the funny. While this could mean a big payday for Braff, there is one teensy issue—his pay is contingent upon the show returning for a seventh season. No renewal, no big payoff—which rings up in the neighborhood of $350,000 per episode for the one year deal. This puts Braff’s paycheck in Charlie Sheen territory, although Sheen’s Two and a Half Men averages 15.2 million viewers each week and Scrubs only draws about 6.9 million. Braff will next be seen in The Ex, a comedy co-starring Jason Bateman. Two of my faves on the big screen? Be still my heart.

Charlie Sheen Earns the Big Bucks

Charlie SheenWow, this news came as a surprise to me—Charlie Sheen is about to become the highest paid comedy star on TV. Does that surprise you too? Maybe most surprising because I don’t like Two and a Half Men, but I’m probably in the minority there. I don’t find anything exceptionally funny about the show, nor do I find anything exceptional about Charlie Sheen. Perhaps I’m still holding a grudge about him replacing Michael J. Fox on Spin City. Anyhoo, Sheen is in negotiations with Warner Bros. TV right now to to earn about $350,000 per episode this season. This makes him a high roller among sitcom stars on the tube now, although it’s just a drop in the bucket to the $2 mil per episode that Ray Ramano received. Two and a Half Men is apparently no slouch—averaging more than 15 million viewers and “making it TV’s most watched straight-forward comedy.” I also didn’t realize that Sheen has been nominated for an Emmy, two Golden Globes, and a Screen Actors Guild award. He must be doing something right… but he’s not getting any laughs out of me.
