No. 1: Eric Braeden - The Young and the Restless

Once again interest in the possible departure of a popular actor or character has helped an actor skyrocket to the top of the Daytime Confidential Top 20. We've seen it before with Melody Thomas Scott, David Canary and Don Diamont.The Young and the Restless' Eric Braeden continues the trend thanks to a media tour of "exclusive" interviews, a Victor and Nikki reunion and Victor's fairwell tour of Genoa City.

Just missing a spot on the Daytime Confidential Top 20 was Tom Pelphrey, coming in at No. 21. General Hospital’s departing Greg Vaughan notched a spot at No. 23. Farah Fath earned One Life to Live’s highest ranking at No. 27. The Young and the Restless’Amelia Heinle made an appearance at No. 33. General Hospital’sSarah Brown came in at No. 45. Rounding out the Daytime Confidential Top 50 is ex-The Young and the Restless star Adrianne Leon, who makes routine appearances among the bottom half of the Top 50.

The Daytime Confidential Top 20 is published each month based on the interests of Daytime Confidential readers. Each actor's ranking is based on the total number of unique visits to their news page. A link to each actor's news page usually appears as a tag in content published about that actor.
