2:04 PM PST -- Sources connected to  the deal tell TMZ ... Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion's share of the money ... and they are each getting equal pay.

We're told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade -- and will be paid equally as well.

Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar ... who hammered out a package deal to appear in both "Khloe and Lamar" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

We're told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows -- so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show ... they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money.

The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it's the richest deal ever in reality TV ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."  

The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.

Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock.

I don't understand. Evidently there are huge profits to be made in being hated. Because other than cash that's all this family has.

The sad thing about all of this - is the foundation for which this family has found success.. was Kim's sex tape...She's still legally married - yet she flaunts her new relationship like it's Ok... Really let's you know Kris H.. was a total fake situation... their hoping you're forget about it.. and move on - like another series...Lamar pretty much is done.. he doesn't care - he drank the the KKK kool-ade - now he too looks like a punk.. THIS IS SO TWISTED... on top of this this family has shown us - that they know what sells to the public.. sex & negative press.. the more hate mail they receive - they love it.. and we the public are at the helm of this stupidity- not them - because we buy their version of reality.. it's all staged, made up for ratings and they MAKE $$$$$ - living fake lives... Take the blinders off people..

While our children in this country starve. These dumb whores spread their legs, like their mom, to use all the normal people. I hope they all rot in hell, and now I will no longer read TMZ. You TMZ are thrash like that family. Yet E wants to pay for this crap. E is equal to being just like Hitler, along with the whores, and TMZ.

I don't know how to interpret the figures. How does this compare with contracts for other shows with a bunch of people in the cast?

Is it just me, or is 3 million viewers kinda paltry? I don't get how they keep getting deals to keep the show on air when the viewership and ratings have dropped since the early seasons. I mean for several episodes of season 6, viewership dropped to 2 million. So why the fuss? Even the CW gets more viewership for their shows.

I guess they told TMZ to write about this so people can tune in to see what a 40 million deal show is about.....ha ha...for sure the curiosities will tune in and make these whores dream come true.

$40 mill for tell-all books where you admit how much of a slut puppy you are (Kris), sex tapes where you get pissed on and decide to make the best of it on advice from above slut puppy (Kim), etc. We need to stop watching the shows and we'll be better off. I also blame Ryan Seacrest

E! is going to end up scratching their heads like OWN going, 'What happened?'. I tuned the Kardashian soap opera out awhile ago, but then again its on a marathon schedule so when your on a commercial break, what's better than the numbing effect of a Kardashian for two minutes!
