The Hollywood Reporter has a new and lengthy exploration of what it refers to as the "Golden Age of Television."

While this kind of assessment usually involves examining the 50 outlets that now produce scripted original programming, instead, they have chosen to focus on just how much money can be made in the television realm.

For decades, TV has always played second fiddle to cinema. But more and more, Hollywood heavyweights are flocking to the medium - encouraged by countless episodes to tell a story rather than one single movie - as well as the aforementioned growing wages.

Reports indicate that Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of Game of Thrones fame each earns $1.1 million USD per episode.

Other key findings include The Walking Dead actors Norman Reedus and Andrew Lincoln making $550,000 and $650,000 USD for seasons seven and eight, Dwayne Johnson making $450,000 USD for Ballers, and Kiefer Sutherland getting $300,000 USD for Designated Survivor.

Additionally, forthcoming projects involving prominent big screen thespians indicate huge salaries as well.

Robert De Niro is getting $750,000 USD for each of 20 episodes of an upcoming Amazon series produced by filmmaker David O. Russell; Jonah Hill and Emma Stone are set to make $350,000 USD for their Netflix project, Maniac; and Meryl Streep is said to have commanded a whopping $825,000 USD per episode to sign on for J.J. Abrams's miniseries The Nix.
