Michael Weatherly and NCIS stars are looking for raise

Michael Weatherly, the star of popular American TV series, might be looking for a raise for appearing in the next season of NCIS. The 7th season of NCIS ended on April 29, 2010. The drama series broadcast by CBS is one of the “most watched scripted show” of in the U.S in 2010. On an average, NCIS is viewed by 18.94 million viewers which is 5% higher compared to last season. Now, the million dollar question is how much raise CBS is going to give to its top stars. Deadline Hollywood:

At least a couple of the quartet are making well under $100,000 per episode, which is low for a hit seven-year-old series. I hear co-star Cote de Pablo, whose deal is up after next season, also has been approached with a similar low offer to extend her contract. In addition to Harmon and de Pablo, also set to return is regular Rocky Carroll, who also has a deal in place for next season. He joined the show in Season 5 as a recurring and was upped to regular the following year.

NCIS, a popular police procedural drama, was aired on TV on September 23, 2003. A spin off from JAG, the drama has aired six full season. The series had been rerurn by USA Network, Sleuth and Ion Television. Donald Bellisario, who also created JAG, Magnum, P.I. and Quantum Leap, is the co-creator and executive producer of NCIS.
