Daytime Confidential Hot 100 of 2011
No. 20: Ingo Rademacher, General Hospital (Debut or Return)
One thing we’ve learned from publishing the Daytime Confidential Top 20 and Hot 100 over the years, is that an actor’s departure or extended absence can often generate more interest in that star than when appearing onscreen. Ingo Rademacher’s General Hospital departure and the subsequent Twitter revelation that he is returning to Port Charles helped propel him to No. 20 on the Daytime Confidential Hot 100.
No. 19: Sharon Case, The Young and the Restless (Down 10)
The Young and the Restless’ Sharon Case fell from No. 9 on 2010’s Daytime Confidential Hot 100 to No. 19 in 2011. Her character, Sharon Newman, remained front and center in 2011.
