SOD Keeping Me Busy: Morrow Now Cover King!

Just hours after I posted about Joshua Morrow tying Eric Braeden with 10 Soap Opera Digest covers over the past year (52 issues), I received the May 5 issue with Morrow on the cover again! Lynn Leahey must love to keeping me busy counting these things.

In the previous 52 issues, here are the updated rankings based on number of cover appearances (some of the images are inset pics not the main photo).
1. Joshual Morrow 11 covers
2. Eric Braeden 10
3. Sharon Case 9
3. Tamara Braun 9
5. Maurice Benard 8
6. Deidre Hall 7
6. Jason Thompson 7
8. Drake Hogestyn 6
8. Alison Sweeney 6
8. Laura Wright 6
8. Michelle Stafford 6

I'm quite happy to see two same sex couples on the cover! Still waiting for the Nuke cover though for two years.

My only fear is "Otalia" fans will buy a million copies off the newsstands and SOD will swear that Joshua Morrow sold all those copies.

With the new issue here, we've now gone a full year since an African American has appeared on the cover.

UPDATE:
Upon further examination, I did find one cover with an African American actor, a tiny picture of Kristoff St. John back in September.

UPDATE #2: The home subscriber cover is basially the same as newsstands except it DOES not including GL's Otalia/Frank.

  11. I'm delighted to see our girls on the cover again, and hopefully they will have more of the front page next time...without Frank :-)

  12. Yay for Otalia on the cover.Time for solo Otalia though...yes beggers can be choosers. I hope CBS is realizing what a big mistake they made.

  13. Otalia cover for the win! That will make 3 Soap Opera Digests I've bought in the last two months, which is 3 more than I'd purchased in the past 20 years.

    Are you listening, Lifetime?!

  14. Otalia is on the cover!! Woohoo! I'm going to buy a bunch of these magazines!! CBS made a huge mistake to cancel Guiding Light. The Light has too much life left in it, and it is time Lifetime takes notice!

  15. Yes! Yes! Yes! Otalia on the Cover!

    *heads out to buy out the rack*

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yay - Otalia made the cover for the second time in three weeks!

    Now I want to a bigger picture of them front and center without Frank...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wait till Otalia get a bigger picture (without Frank), I will buy a million copies! Thank you for your comments.

  18. Otalia deserves a cover of their own but I'm happy seeing them anywhere they are. Can't wait to pick up the mag and read the article.

  19. So glad to see Otalia on the cover. But I agree: next time, bigger picture!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Glad to see Otalia on the cover, wish it was bigger pics. But hang on, the way their fanbase is growing, it won't be long and they will have big pics on all the covers. When Otalia fans want something, they are like the Xenaverse, RELENTLESS!!! Love Otalia!

  21. Finally, Otalia on the newsstand cover! Not just for subscribers.

    Thanks SOD!

  22. I will buy for Otalia and I hope to see the girls on the cover as the main story. Otalia is still the best-written, well-acted love story on television. Joshua who?

  23. I will definitely buy a copy for Otalia--no one else. Guiding Light has created the most well-written, best-acted love story on daytime today. Joshua who?

  26. Otalia and Breese. Pretty fancy.

    I am loving the Otalia though. They deserve more covers!

  27. My only fear is "Otalia" fans will buy a million copies off the newsstands and SOD will swear that Joshua Morrow sold all those copies.Actually, it'll be because I got another letter published (re: GL's cancelation). LOL! But seriously, Otalia on the cover... again... this is HUGE! Woohoo!

  28. I am running out to grab that copy! Can't it just be Natalia and Oliva on the cover next time?! Come on Lifetime there are tons of us out there that would come to your network! Pick up GL!
