Ellen DeGeneres and Jimmy Fallon remain the top dogs on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart, ranking at Nos. 1 and 2 on the March 20-dated tally.

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 March 12.

The rest of the top five changes slightly, as Mike Huckabee moves from No. 4 to No. 3, Trevor Noah falls from No. 3 to No. 4 and Andy Cohen jumps from No. 8 to No. 5.

James Corden, meanwhile, leads the chart’s re-entries after a week that saw him host The Jonas Brothers on CBS' The Late Late Show With James Corden surrounding the boy band’s reunion.
