Kevin Hart continues to hold the top spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart, leading for the third week since its inception.

The Top Comedians chart is a ranking of the most popular comedians 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. The latest tracking week ended June 13.

The content of the chart’s top five remains unchanged from the previous week’s ranking, though the ranks change slightly, as D.L. Hughley rises 4-2 while Bill Maher drops 2-4.
