NEW YORK (AP) — “The Big Bang Theory” is being delayed by a fight over big bucks.

The first day of production was postponed because of a contract dispute.

The Hollywood Reporter says Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki currently make $325,000 per episode. They’re negotiating as a group and want salary increases to as high as $1 million per episode as well as a cut of the back-end profits.

Contract disputes are common on long-running TV shows.
