No. 20: Alicia Minshew - All My Children

All My Children'sAlicia Minshewmay have survived a heart transplant as Kendall, but she didn't surive the Daytime Confidential Top 20 in April. Fortunately, she has found her way back onto the DC Top 20 at No. 20.




No. 19: Sarah Michelle Gellar - All My Children

It has been more than a little while since Sarah Michelle Gellar appeared on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. In fact, it was on the July 2008 DC Top 20. After months off the list, she returns at No. 19.

No. 18: Jake Silbermann - As the World Turns

Jake Silbermann isn't getting much action onscreen and apparently he didn't get much attention in May. After reaching a personal best at No. 13–the highest an As the World Turns star has appeared on the Daytime Confidential Top 20–he drops five spots to No. 18.

No. 17: Kimberly McCullough - General Hospital

In March Kimberly McCullough missed out on the Daytime Confidential Top 20, appearing at No. 28. In April she worked her way back onto the list at No. 11, but in May she lost momentum and falls to No. 17.

No. 16: Tamara Braun - All My Children



Since leaving All My Children, interest in Tamara Braun seems to have ebbed among Daytime Confidential readers. The actress falls from No. 12 in April to No. 16 in May. Only time will tell if she can remain in the Daytime Confidential Top 20, without appearing on a soap.

No. 15: Billy Miller - The Young and the Restless

Billy Miller may be having a hard time deciding who he wants to be with on The Young and the Restless, but it is obvious that Daytime Confidential readers want to see more of him. Miller moves up from No. 19 in April to No. 15 on May's Daytime Confidential Top 20.

No. 14: Van Hansis - As the World Turns

For the first time, As the World Turns star Van Hansis appears higher on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 than his onscreen co-star Jake Silbermann. Four spots separate the two actors with Hansis at No. 14 and Silbermann at No. 18.

No. 13: Victoria Rowell - The Young and the Restless

Victoria Rowell's wild ride on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 took another turn in May. The former two time DC Top 20 No. 1 slid from No. 10 in April to No. 13 in May. In March, Rowell did not appear within in the Daytime Confidential Top 50.

No. 12: Melody Thomas Scott - The Young and the Restless

The last time Melody Thomas Scott appeared on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 it was at No. 16 in July of 2008. In May, Thomas skyrocketed out of nowhere to No. 12 on the DC Top 20. Could the news of her being written out at The Young and the Restless shoot her even higher up on the list? Tune in next month to find out.

No. 11: Steve Burton - General Hospital

Steve Burton is quickly losing his possible grasp on the throne of the 2009 Daytime Confidential Hot 100. In 2008 he earned the Daytime Confidential Hot 1000 No. 1 ranking by consistently appearing in the DC Top 5. This is the lowest Steve Burton has ranked since we began tracking daytime's most popular stars.

No. 10: Rebecca Herbst - General Hospital

Rebecca Herbstdropped six spots from No. 4 on April's Daytime Confidential Top 20 to No. 10 in May. This is the lowest Herbst has appeared on the DC Top 20 since February, when she held the spot at No. 13.

No. 9: Daniel Goddard - The Young and the Restless

Daniel Goddard edges down one spot from No. 8 in April to No. 9 on the May Daytime Confidential Top 20. Goddard's The Young and the Restless co-star Christel Khalil appears higher on the DC Top 20.

No. 8: Kelly Monaco - General Hospital

For the first time since we began publishing the Daytime Confidential Top 20 Kelly Monaco ranks higher than both Liason actors, Steve Burton and Rebecca Herbst. This happened even as Monaco dropped two spots from No. 6 in April to No. 8 in May.

No. 7: John Driscoll - The Young and the Restless

In February, the death of John Driscoll's Coop on Guiding Light earned him a No. 2 spot on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. In March, Driscoll dropped out of the DC Top 20 before returning to it in April at No. 17. As interest in his upcoming character on The Young and the Restless continues to grow it will be interesting to see how high he can go on the Daytime Confidential Top 20.

No. 6: Nathan Parsons - General Hospital

General Hospital'sNathan Parsons continues his upward trek on the Daytime Confidential Top 20. Parsons climbs from No. 14 in April to No. 6 in May.

No. 5: Christel Khalil - The Young and the Restless

After achieving a personal best on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 in April at No. 2, Christel Khalilslides three spots to No. 5 in May. Khalil has been among the Daytime Confidential Top 20 since January.

No. 4: Chris Engen - The Young and the Restless



Controversy swirled around Chris Engen in May and spawned interest in The Young and the Restless actor. In April, Engen didn't appear among the Daytime Confidential Top 50 actors we track. It remains to be seen whether or not interest in Engen will remain strong enough to keep him in the Daytime Confidential Top 20 in June.

No. 3: Jessica Leccia - Guiding Light

Otalia fans came out in force and helped Jessica Lecciaclimb two spots into the extremely competitive Daytime Confidential Top 3. Approximately 300 unique clicks separate Leccia from the Daytime Confidential Top 20 No. 1.

No. 2: Crystal Chappell - Guiding Light

After becoming the first Guiding Light actor to earn a No. 1 Daytime Confidential Top 20 ranking in April, Crystal Chappell slips one spot to No. 2 in May. With news that Chappell will be returning to her role as Carly Manning, on Days of Our Lives, it will be interesting to see if she can reclaim the No. 1 ranking in June.



No. 1: David Canary - All My Children

amc0422096

Spurred by interest in the "Who Killed Adam?" storyline, David Canary skyrocketed from No. 24 on April's ranking to No. 1 in May. This is the first time All My Children's silver fox has appeared in the Daytime Confidential Top 20. Other All My Children actors who have earned a No. 1 Daytime Confidential Top 20 ranking include Alicia Minshew and Sarah Michelle Gellar.




Daytime Confidential Top 50: Each month we publish the Daytime Confidential Top 20. Here are the rankings of some of the actors who missed out.



Don Diamont is not bold enough to earn a spot in May, coming in at No. 21. One Life to Live'sFarah Fath remains its most popular actor, but was only able to muster up enough interest to appear at No. 27. Thom Beirdz is nipping at Fath's heals at No. 28. Katherine Kelly Lang's DC Top 20 fortunes haven't improved. The popular actress slipped from No. 34 in April to No. 38 in May. Deidre Halltook a giant slide from No. 9 in April to No. 39 in May. Flash-in-the-pan former No. 1 Eddie Cibrian forgot how to "rime" and fell from No. 16 to No. 40. Jennifer Landon appeared at No. 29 on the first Daytime Confidential Top 50. One year later she returns to the DC Top 50 at No. 47. Joshua Morrow's abs are rounding out the Daytime Confidential Top 50 at No. 50
