Cast members Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara were paid in the $65,000-an-episode range for the 22-episode third season, sources told the Reporter, a fee that was bumped up from the first two seasons last summer.

As the Season 4 approaches, now is the time pay negotiations begin. A source said the "Modern Family" gang could be asking for $200,000 an episode in exchange for agreeing to extend original seven-year deals by an additional year or two so the studio can generate bigger syndication revenue.

Reps for 20th and the actors declined comment.
