Tyra Banks becomes the first personality to lead The Hollywood Reporter's Top TV Personalities chart for more than one week, reigning for a second week in a row.

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 4.

Banks, whose Facebook posts about NBC's America's Got Talent, on which she's in her first season as host, have helped her standing on the chart, is followed mostly by the same top nine as the previous week, albeit in a different order, plus a new entry from Jonathan Scott at No. 10.
