A 47 percent boost in chart metrics allows Kevin Hart to extend his lead on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart, ruling the tally dated Feb. 28.

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 Feb. 20.

Beneath Hart, Amy Schumer reaches a new peak at No. 2 (she previously ranked at No. 4 in July 2017), while D.L. Hughley, Leslie Jones and Joe Rogan round out the top five.

Meanwhile, Chris Rock returns to the chart for the first time since last summer, and Tiffany Haddish is the other re-entry at No. 9.
