Everybody shuns ‘Raymond’

Garrett’s representatives said in late July the actor wouldn’t show up for the new season unless his $150,000 per episode salary was doubled – making him the highest paid actor on the show after Romano, who takes in a record $1.7 million-plus per episode.

Ray Romano gets $1.7 million an episode? Now Brad Garrett and Patricia Heaton are asking for more money. ELR isn’t “Friends”. The cast of Friends are worth a million an episode, but Ray F-ing Romano? $300k for Brad “Herman Munster” Garrett? From the article I read today, the show might just implode. Maybe we can just get a show with Peter Boyle and Doris Roberts, the only funny thing in that horrid show.
