The reign of Sofia Vergara as the queen of television continues.

The native of Colombia ranks as the best-paid actress on the small screen for the seventh consecutive year, according to Forbes.

Vergara's considerable career, which is almost double the highest-paid television actor, comes mainly from her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in the hit ABC comedy "Modern Family." The star also has many lucrative endorsements and licensing agreements that make up almost half of her salary to take home.

Remaining behind at No. 2 is Kaley Cuoco, or dear Penny, as fans of "Big Bang Theory" have come to know her. (The program is ending its 12-season career in May).

Cuoco raised $ 24.5 million before taxes, a considerable salary considering that the actress had a salary cut along with her co-stars to increase the earnings of newcomers Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik (who were among the top 10).

In addition to the stars of "Big Bang Theory", Rauch and Bialik, the actress of "Homeland" Claire Danes rejoins the classification. (It appeared for the last time in 2014). Out of the list this year: Robin Wright, Mindy Kaling and Priyanka Chopra.

Here is a look at the annual pay of the best television actresses, with estimated earnings from June 1, 2017 to June 1, 2018:

1. Sofia Vergara

Star "Modern Family", 46, $ 42.5 million.
