Turns out not Everybody Loves Raymond. Brad Garrett, who plays Ray's brother Robert, is refusing to show up for work unless he gets a raise. Garrett reportedly earns $4 million a year, chump change compared to Ray Romano's $45 million annual salary. Anticipating a possible walk-out by Garrett, producers wrote the actor out of the show's first episode. In a statement, reps for Garrett said their client "earns less than 10 percent of Ray's salary and is the lowest-paid member of a grossly underpaid supporting cast." Further complicating matters: Co-star Patricia Heaton, who also may be seeking a pay hike, has called in sick for the past two days possibly delaying filming of the season premiere until next week. On the bright side, the entire cast of CBS's Yes, Dear are hard at work on the show's fourth season. Phew!
