Cash from syndication rights
February 2, 2005 9:01 AM Subscribe
- According to the entry on Wikipedia, television syndication is "where the real money is" when it comes to producing TV shows (particularly, off network syndication). I'm curious to know how much money an actor like Dave Coulier
(Uncle Joey, Full House) makes from syndication rights. Any guesses or insight? [justatinybitmoreinside

I realize coming up with an actual number would require knowledge of how the actors are contracted to work.. and yada yada.. I'm just looking to come up with an estimate.
Say Uncle Joey makes $100 each time an episode airs. (Is that reasonable? outrageous?) If episodes air 3 times a day, he's pocketing $300 a day for work he did years ago. That's an easy 100K.
