— -- Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel's "Gilmore Girls" reunion came with a pretty big price tag.

The co-stars teamed up again for a Netflix update to the beloved series -- premiering November 25 -- and each earned an estimated $750,000 per episode for their work.

That's according to a Variety survey of actors salaries for executives and other figures in the entertainment business.

Kevin Spacey has also been cashing in for his role on a Netflix series. He rakes in $500,000 per episode for playing President Frank Underwood on "House of Cards." Only one male actor in a drama earns more, according to Variety's rankings: "NCIS" cast member Mark Harmon at $525,000 per episode.

Several stars of HBO's "Game of Thrones" make $500,000 per episode: Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

On the comedy side, "The Big Bang Theory's" Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki each earn $1 million per episode.

"Judge Judy" Sheindlin leads Variety's list of reality TV, late-night and news hosts, pulling in an estimated $47 million per year.
