For a fifth week, Tyra Banks is the No. 1 personality on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart (dated Aug. 16).

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 Aug. 8.

Banks gained 32 percent in Facebook shares – one of her primary sources of points for the chart – as America’s Got Talent, the show she’s currently hosting, entered its fourth and final round of judges’ cuts before the quarterfinals.
