'Modern Family' Raises For Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould And Rico Rodriguez

Talk about a bunch of rich kids!

According to, the child actors of ABC's "Modern Family" -- Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould and Rico Rodriguez -- are racking in the cash this season. The young stars will receive around $70,000 per episode, which is more than the adults of the comedy made last season.

Although Hyland, Winter, Gould and Rodriguez have full piggy banks, Audrey Anderson-Emmons, who portrays Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch's (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) daughter Lily, didn't get a raise since she'd only been on the show for one season.

The "Modern Family" salary battle was a long one, and included a canceled Season 4 table read during the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

Eventually the matter was resolved and Stonestreet, Ferguson, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, and Sofia Vergara are all set to receive $170,000-180,000 per episode. (Ed O'Neill negotiated his salary bump separately.)

Modern Family Season 4 premieres Wed., Sept. 26, 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
