Jimmy Kimmel leads The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart for the first time, re-entering the chart at No. 1 on the ranking dated Oct. 4.
The Top TV Personalities chart is a ranking of the most popular TV personalities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart’s methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. TV personalities are defined here as performers primarily known for their appearances on their own TV series, including hosts of entertainment/news shows. The latest tracking week ended Sept. 26.
Kimmel bows at No. 1 (after previously rising as high as No. 2) chiefly due to posts surrounding his opposition of the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill in the U.S. Senate (more on that below). He’s followed by Chris Hayes, Jimmy Fallon, Joanna Gaines and Tyra Banks (last week’s No. 1) in the top five.
