The four Emmy-nominated West Wing actors who've been demanding salary hikes--Allison Janney, Richard Schiff, John Spencer and Bradley Whitford-have finally settled their dispute with Warner Bros. Television.

The quartet will now receive a reported $70,000 per episode of NBC's hit White House drama--more than double their previous payouts of $30,000 per episode last year. However, according to Variety, each actor agreed to limited-time commitments on the show, though they had been promised eight-year contracts before the massive raises.

Though the foursome's new $70,000 paychecks are a dramatic increase for the actors, they still make salaries well below that of fellow supporting actor Rob Lowe, who nabs $90,000 per episode.
