After leading the inaugural Top TV Personalities chart on The Hollywood Reporter, Joanna Gaines returns to No. 1 for a second week overall.

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 July 11.

Gaines takes over the top spot from Tyra Banks, who had led the previous two weeks. Meanwhile, Anthony Bourdain and Anderson Cooper both enter the top 10.

    Despite regaining the No. 1 spot on the chart, it was a relatively relaxing week for Gaines, who posted on social media about her "workcation" with husband Chip. Even still, she jumps 159 percent in Facebook followers, adding 36,000 new ones in the tracking week.
