You're used to seeing them on the small screen as their larger-than-life characters, but these TV actresses are more than their fictional personas.

According to Forbes, Sofia Vergara and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting tied for first place as the world's highest paid TV actresses. Both of them earned $28.5 million between June 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015. Vergara, who stars on Modern Family, and Cuoco-Sweeting, who stars on The Big Bang Theory, earned most of their income from their respective sitcoms.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Vergara has topped the list as the highest paid TV actress. Not only does Vergara have successful endorsement deals with CoverGirl and Head and Shoulders, but she also co-founded and runs Latin World Entertainment.

Last year, along with her Big Bang co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki, Cuoco-Sweeting signed a $1 million per episode deal, and her lucrative contract with Priceline.com also helped her climb to the top of the list.

Julie Bowen from Modern Family landed in third place with $12 million in earnings, while Emily Deschanel from Bones came in fourth with $6.5 million.

Not bad ladies. Not bad at all.
