Daytime Confidential's Top 10 Couples of 2008
No. 4: Luke and Noah - As the World Turns
Luke (Van Hansis) and Noah (Jake Silbermann) were definitely daytime's underdog couple of 2008. Fans love them, but executives don't know what to do with them. This year Nuke had to contend with an Iraqi refugee wife for Noah, a plot-driven election debacle and a groping grandfather, all while watching their air time and intimacy diminish. After months of enduring the infamous kissing ban, Nuke finally locked lips again in early 2008, but since then the shows of affection between the same-sex couple have been scarce at best. Hopefully in 2009 As the World Turns takes their groundbreaking romance to the next level.
