Kevin Hart holds the top spot on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart for the fourth week in a row, while Katt Williams and Sarah Silverman re-enter.

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 20.

All of the comedians on the 10-position chart this week have made the list previously, while the rest of the top six (D.L. Hughley, Ricky Gervais, Bill Maher, Joe Rogan and Mike Epps) remains intact from its previous week rank.

    Last month, Schumer uploaded a few videos and photos to her social media chronicling her day on the set of Judge Judy. On June 19, she revisited that trip, uploading what looks to be a screenshot from an upcoming episode of the long-running reality court show showing her in the audience in the background. Schumer earns 19,000 new Facebook post likes and 486,000 Instagram favorites, according to MVPindex.

    Gervais holds down the No. 3 spot on the chart, experiencing a 12 percent boost in Twitter likes and a 95 percent lift in Facebook shares. Many of his posts followed his continuing stand-up tour, which stopped over in Southampton, England, on June 19, though he also uploaded a for-your-consideration poster for his David Brent: Life on the Road Netflix special, entered in multiple categories for the upcoming Emmys.
