Forbes has released its annual list of highest-paid TV actresses, and prepare to not be surprised by who's reigning supreme.

For the sixth year in a row, Modern Family's Sofía Vergara has earned her way to the title of highest-paid TV actress with a staggering $41.5 million, and we give her major props for that. Even though she's most known for her TV work, most of the money Vergara earned came from licensing and endorsement deals.

In order to create the list, Forbes considered how much actresses made between June 2, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before taxes and fees.

Coming in second place with a little more than half of Vergara's total is Kaley Cuoco, who stars on The Big Bang Theory. Cuoco made $26 million.

Third place is a tie between Mindy Kaling and Ellen Pompeo, who each made $13 million, while Mariska Hargitay rounds out the top five with $12.5 million (fun fact, Hargitay was also the fifth highest-paid TV actress last year too).
