Daytime Confidential Top 20, February 2009
Welcome to the Daytime Confidential Top 20 for February 2009. Each month we publish a ranking of daytime's current and past actors, journalists and personalities based on Daytime Confidential.com reader interest and clicks. This month, for the first time in Daytime Confidential Top 20 history, a male actor will claim the No. 1 ranking.
No. 20: Crystal Chappell – Guiding Light
Crystal Chappell makes her Daytime Confidential Top 20 debut on February’s list. It shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the PR push to promote Otalia and the resulting interest in Guiding Light’s lesbian couple. Guiding Light also made its best showing on the DC Top 20 in February, with three stars earning spots on the ranking. Ironically, Chappel’s on screen love interest Jessica Leccia didn’t make the list.
No. 19: Beth Ehlers – All My Children
Beth Ehlers returns to the Daytime Confidential Top 20 after falling off the list in January. When the Daytime Confidential Top 20 first debuted in 2008 Ehlers was in the midst of leaving Guiding Light and joining All My Children. It helped her earn her highest DC Top 20 ranking at No. 2, but since then she experienced a steady decline in popularity among Daytime Confidential readers.
